While "well-being" may be a trending term that saw a pique amid the global pandemic, if we are to ensure it's continued investment in the corporate world, we must make its direct connection to employee and organizational performance clear. Too often, "well-being" is thought of as a trendy concept that conjures lofty images of meditating on a beach, rather than the bedrock of employee performance, retention and innovation.
Pulling from i4cp's Culture Renovation research, we will discuss how we can treat employee well-being as a strategic culture imperative. We will look at where Employee Well-being resides in the organization and to whom it should report for greatest impact.
Our guiding questions include:
- How does well-being impact business and leader performance?
- Where should employee well-being efforts report to for greatest impact in an organization?
- How does Culture Renovation connect with well-being and performance?
- How does well-being support innovation, creativity, sustainability, resiliency, and performance?
- How should well-being be integrated into the organization?
Building on groundbreaking research by both i4cp and Rob Cross, the Employee Well-Being Exchange is a peer-driven community working group that explores the relational sources of well-being, how personal networks impact this, and the tools to support individual performance and well-being.
