The Issue of Establishing the Wellbeing of Employees with Short-Term Solutions

April 7, 2021

Due to the progression of the workplace, we are seeing tendencies to opt for short-term solutions for almost every issue. The problem with this approach is that it assumes all problems are short-termed, which is not always the case.

In reality, you need to invest more in addressing issues of the workplace to keep your employees motivated and productive.

In this article, we will discuss the importance of addressing issues in the workplace with the necessary planning and durations rather than opting for short-term answers.

The importance of addressing wellbeing issues in the workplace

Isolation priorities

Over the past few months, the effects of the lockdown significantly damaged the mental health of the general population. Isolating people from one another negatively impacts their psychological health and professional performance.

Conversely, collaborative teams who socially engage with one another are more likely to produce impressive results in the workplace. In fact, the Global Happiness Council estimates that a meaningful increase in the mental health of employees and their interactions leads to a 10% increase in productivity.

Long-term problems need long-term solutions

Short-term mental health solutions to fix COVID-related isolation effects are not effective at solving such a convoluted issue. The significant number of employees who suffer from mental health issues across the world makes this phenomenon a public health problem that requires more wide-range approaches.

Building a strong and authentic company culture is fundamental to ensure the wellbeing of your employees.  

To do this, you need to commit some concepts with your team to promote the mental health of everyone.

Employee wellbeing

Coaching is an excellent way to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Seeking the help of mental health professionals online provides your employees with unlimited access to help.

This solution is optimal during the quarantine caused by the global pandemic; however, what matters the most is the consistency of receiving these therapeutic sessions.

Takeaway message

Addressing the issues of the workplace in a comprehensive manner is essential to prevent irreversible damage. Opting for short-term solutions is not always a good idea.

We hope that this article managed to highlight the value of serious assessment of the issues in the workplace and how it could lead to better performance.
