“Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and the organisation. Promoting wellbeing can help prevent stress and create positive working environments where individuals and organisations can thrive.”
The importance of employee health and wellbeing has become more widely recognised over the past decade. In particular there is increasing concern about mental health, and the growing pressures people face living and working in today’s world.
Employee wellbeing is critical for business performance. A healthy workplace, that promotes a state of contentment, benefits both employees and the organisation.
Our absolute priority at Caerphilly County Borough Council is to work with our employees to promote and facilitate good health and wellbeing, and to provide excellent services to those who need our support.
Our recent staff survey showed that 84% of respondents felt their work life balance was good or very good.
One of the key reasons given as a contributing factor to good work life balance was agile working.
Employees commented that agile working has meant they can spend more time with family, work flexibly around personal needs, improve their productivity, feel more trusted and support their caring responsibilities.
