Wellness encompasses many different aspects of the whole individual: mental, emotional, physical and financial, to name the broad categories.
The quality of the relationships employees and management have with each other contributes to wellness in the workplace. Do they feel understood, accepted, valued? Are they able to relate to their team members in a meaningful way? If the answer is not yes to these questions, engagement, productivity and retention decline.
Being accepted, belonging and connected are important psychological needs for everyone. Spending half of one’s waking day in a place where this is not present is unhealthy and unprofitable.
