Staff Wellbeing Activities
Staff wellbeing is hugely important in the modern workplace.
The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development or CIPD defines employee wellbeing as 'staff within an environment that has been created to promote a state of contentment which allows an employee to flourish and achieve their full potential for the benefit of themselves and their organisation'.
The goal of creating the perfect 'work-life balance' is challenging for both employers and employees - sometimes so overwhelming that it is neglected entirely in favour of what are considered to be more important business targets.
That said, some organisations have found a way to embed staff wellbeing activities into everyday routines, improving workplace efficiency and overall employee health. So how did they do it?
Well, key areas that are of importance for staff wellbeing in the workplace include:
- The working environment
- Employee development and engagement
- Overall work-life balance
- Core values
- Organisational leadership
- Physical and mental health

A range of wellbeing activities can be used including:
