WHY IS WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE IMPORTANT?
Organisations are increasingly concerned with the resilience and wellbeing of their employees mostly because of their growing awareness of the costs of absenteeism, presenteeism and staff turnover associated with stress and mental health issues.
Up to 11 million days are lost through absenteeism every year at a cost of €1.5bn to the Irish economy. Research shows that engaged and healthy employees are, on average, up to 30 days more productive and likely to give greater company loyalty to employers who demonstrate an interest in their wellbeing.
Research published by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) indicates the most common types of work-related illnesses — that stress, anxiety, and depression (SAD) and musculo-skeletal disorders (MSD) account for 50% and 18% of work-related illnesses, respectively.
“The findings point to a need for targeted measures to address work-related illnesses, not only to assist workers experiencing difficulties, but also to tackle the issues of lost productivity, and the associated costs for healthcare and social protection,”
- Helen Russell, associate research professor at the ESRI
Mindfulness and a holistic approach to stress management in the work place appears to positively impact human functioning overall. Research in psychology, neuroscience and medicine provide a wealth of evidence that mindfulness improves attention, cognition, emotions, behaviour and physiology.
Neuroscience demonstrates the profound impact of mindfulness at home and in the workplace. There is however a need to integrate practical applications to create a sense of safety in the workplace.
