Assistance with employee wellbeing
Ensuring that procedures are in place for handling workplace stress is one of the most important ways that employee wellbeing is maintained. From personal problems to issues with a certain task or workload, there are many reasons why an employee may feel stressed at work. While preventing stress altogether may not be possible, there are many things you can do to ensure that these issues do not develop further into any lasting problems. Giving an employee the opportunity to speak about any problems that may be bothering them, or simply providing employees with the chance to relax if they are feeling stressed can be extremely helpful. Peninsula have worked with many different companies to help with employee wellbeing, meaning you can trust us to help maintain an enjoyable workplace environment.
Another potential problem which you are forced to deal with as an employer is preventing workplace bullying. Thankfully this may not be an issue in every workplace, with the staff getting on well and working together as a team. However, a study from the Workplace Bullying Institute in 2012 found that around 30 per cent of workers reported they had previously suffered some form of workplace bullying. Of course, bullying can have an extremely damaging impact on employee wellbeing, and must be prevented or dealt with as soon as possible.
