Has your organization recently made the transition to remote work? If so, it’s likely that the health and wellbeing of your work-from-home team is top of mind.
Don’t get us wrong, remote work comes with a huge number of benefits for both your organization and your employees. Your business can benefit from increased productivity, reduced staff turnover and improved job satisfaction. While your employees will make the most of a better work-life balance, increased money savings and less commuting stress.
However, for employees who are not used to it, working from home can also throw up a number of challenges. With more employees working from home than ever before, the need to monitor staff wellbeing has become increasingly important.
Why is it important to monitor remote staff wellbeing?
Happy workers who enjoy their jobs are more likely to be engaged with their employer, passionate about the brand they work for and committed to their job. This results in improved productivity, better work performance and higher revenues for your organization.
In fact, research from Gallup found that highly engaged teams result in 21 percent greater profitability for the companies they work for. That’s because teams who score in the top 20 percent in engagement realize a 41 percent reduction in absenteeism and 59 percent less staff turnover.
Engaged and happy remote employees will log on to their computer every day with the passion, purpose and energy required to succeed in their role and help your business grow.
Employees who are healthy and happy will:
- care about the results of your organization and work harder to achieve their goals;
- be more loyal to your business and stay in their job longer;
- communicate with their peers better;
- bring innovative ideas and creative problem solving that drives revenue for your company;
- and much more!
So, how can your business improve the health and wellbeing of its remote employees? Social interaction plays a significant role in the wellbeing of your employees, and you now need to consider new ways to build stronger relationships for your team since they are no longer located in a physical office.
To help you do just that, Teambonders has created the Wellness - Mind and Body virtual team building event - specifically designed to improve the remote employee engagement.
What is the Wellness - Mind and Body team building event?
Wellness - Mind and Body is a virtual team building event designed and facilitated by Teambonders to promote health and wellbeing among remote employees. Focusing on the personal wellness of your employees simply makes good business sense.
