Employee wellbeing is a business matter

Why wellbeing?

One of the most important aspects of creating an exceptional employee experience is improving the lives of employees. There isn’t a week that goes by where I don’t speak to an organisation who are finding it difficult to tackle the workplace wellbeing problem. Wellbeing is such a wide spectrum of physical, mental, financial and social issues, employers are finding it hard to choose from hundreds of providers in order to satisfy a diverse and ever-changing workforce. They are also struggling with knowing how to help, taking an evidence-based approach, building a business case and showing a return on investment.

When I moved into the newly created role at Benefex as Director of Employee Wellbeing it was to help employers help their employees. It’s something that I am incredibly passionate about. Looking after the welfare of our employees is no longer just about reducing absence and improving productivity, it is about creating the kind of workplace employees want to turn up to every Monday morning.

A bit about me

I'm a psychology graduate, writer, and speaker, who has been helping some of the world's largest organisations improve their employee experience and wellbeing for almost two decades. The last nine years, I have spent working as part of the senior leadership team here at Benefex, most recently moving into the role of Director of Employee Wellbeing. 

I'm passionate about creating workplaces where people and business alike can thrive, and write on this regularly. I have been featured in The Guardian, The Huffington Post and The Financial Times as well as major HR, Reward and Pensions publications. I am also a regular keynote speaker and a founding member of the Engage for Success Wellbeing Thought Action Group. I am also on the Employee Engagement Powerlist, winner of the Lotus Award for Culture and one of the EEA’s Top 100 Global Employee Engagement Influencers.

In 2018, I published my first first book - the 5-star rated Amazon HR bestseller ‘A World of Good: Lessons From Around the World in Improving the Employee Experience’.

My employee experience book

Thousands of studies have been dedicated to improving the world of work, and in recent years this trend has grown rapidly as the modern employer reacts to changing expectations. That’s why I wrote my 'A World of Good' – to help HR understand the various elements of the employee experience and to make small improvements that can lead to big impact.

Finding ways to improve the lives of employees should be a priority for every employer. More than ever, an organisation's front line affects their bottom line. 'A World of Good: Lessons from around the world in improving the employee experience' brings together some surprising workplace practices from more than fifteen countries, and underpins them with interviews and psychological research to explore what employee experience looks like across the globe.

My wellbeing podcast

Inspired by my book, I created 'A Word of Good' podcast series after being inspired by the wellbeing conversations I was hearing through my role at Benefex. 

In each episode, I speak to a different guest to learn about an aspect of employee wellbeing and share ideas on how organisations can make work a better place to be. I speak to think tanks, academics and charities, CEOs (including our own Matt Macri-Waller!), teachers, money experts, journalists and neuro-scientists covering everything from financial wellbeing to workplace design and mental health.

The series puts employee wellbeing at the centre of any great employee experience, discussing what that looks like in all kinds of workplaces.
