SMG’s 2017 Corporate Wellbeing Report

As the economic and regulatory pressures on businesses increase, it is imperative that key improvement metrics pertaining to staff are leveraged to their utmost. Irrespective of the size and turnover of the organisation, common pressures appear at a management and board level. Drivers around productivity, staff retention, occupational health and safety and training transcend every industry group; every sector, every geography. The need to prioritise staff development has never been greater. A focus on balancing productivity measures whilst optimising staff welfare has risen to the forefront of board priorities. This is in part due to continued legislative attention, but also to the growing demand for employers to match staff values.

The desire to implement a Corporate Wellbeing strategy has been publicised by the vast majority of large private organisations and the public sector in 2017. As organisational policies are developed with the intention of creating and maintaining a relevant human resources strategy, few have perfected the formula. Like no time before, the intention to tick a regulatory box, is no longer deemed sufficient. The paradigm shifts to empowering the workforce has commenced.

This movement has also seen the appointment of executives to manage this key focus; heads of culture and people, heads of workplace safety and general managers of corporate welfare, to name a few. This crucial paradigm shift is no longer being delegated to the average Human Resources representative.

The introduction of Wearable Technologies and Artificial Intelligence has added to the complexity, leading to widespread inactivity despite its best of intentions. The desire to blend comprehensive workforce reform and healthy standard is evident; but is desire enough?
