Bringing Employee Well-Being Back to the Center of Business
Well-being, understood as a strategy aimed at improving people's conditions in a holistic sense (physical, mental, and social), has been proven to be a priority for businesses. In Italy alone, in the past year 63 percent of companies have implemented well-being practices to allow workers to better integrate personal and professional life.#Having an effective program for employee well-being offers organizations a clearer vision of changes in the workforce and internal social trends, that is fundamental for the redefinition and alignment of business goals. Planning initiatives to safeguard the "3S" – safety, health ( salute in Italian), and sustainability – is thus necessary to define a company's growth strategy.#The high levels of stress that Millennials and Gen Z have reached in the months of this pandemic have not been adequately addressed by organizations. This issue, regarding employee mental health, is one where most companies are still lagging.
