How do you look after your staff? Would your employees rate you as a good boss? Do you ensure they are supported and valued, not just as a member of your organisation, but as a person, with a family and a life outside of the office? How do you think your employees would say you treat them?
Always, but especially now, we should recognise that everyone has issues, challenges and hardships going on behind the scenes. We are all good at putting on a brave face, but sometimes our internal struggles rise to the surface, and they start to impact on our day-to-day lives, which includes what we bring into the workplace, and how we do our jobs.
It has been scientifically proven that with proper staff well-being in place, employees are more productive, more resilient, have less sick days, have more job satisfaction and staff turnover is drastically reduced.
The SMILE System™ offers a unique support mechanism to members of staff, either individually or as a team. The objective of this positive thinking mindset programme is to support mental and emotional well-being in the workplace. The effects of this inspiring and motivating course has resulted in enthusiastic, confident, motivated staff, happy in their jobs and wanting to succeed for themselves and the organisation they work for.
A well being programme such as the SMILE System™ can be delivered into the workplace, tailored to each organisation’s preference. A key beneficial area is as part of induction training for new members of staff, where they are supported and valued from Day 1. These sessions can be stand alone or as a series of regular positive, supportive training days. It can also be offered as one to one or group coaching or lunch and learn ‘Power Hour’ sessions, or even as half or full day workshops. Motivational talks to staff members is another option, as well as ‘train the trainer’ which would mean training up one or several key members of staff to then deliver the course to the rest of the staff. The Smile Global team is very keen to make this positive living framework accessible to everyone.
Currently, when our very way of life is unsettled and uncertain, it is the perfect time to reassure staff that they are valued and an integral part of the company. Many companies are now realising the benefits to their staff, and the resulting output and productivity to their organisation. With supportive, effective programmes like the SMILE System™ in place, employees will always have a reliable method of help to turn to when needed.
Richard Branson knew the secret to looking after his staff. He invested in their well-being and ensured they were valued and supported. He was famously quoted as saying: ‘train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to’.
He believed that his staff were the very essence of his business. If his staff felt appreciated, they would work hard, happily and willingly. Obviously this billionaire mogul knew what worked and he has proven over and over again how happy, well supported staff work much more enthusiastically and productively.
Surely it is fundamental to any employer to ensure that their workforce is well looked after and supported. Not only is it a human kindness, but it will ensure staff members are engaged, loyal and committed to do a good job because they actually want to.
