EMPLOYEE WELLNESS CAMPAIGNS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE
A lack of teamwork, lack of acknowledgement by superiors, high pressure environments and cultural, religious and racial issues lead to a demotivated workforce, even when employees are being remunerated well. As an employer, it is essential to ensure that employees are properly motivated, driving them to work productively, leading to increased sales and staff retention.
While physical health campaigns are the norm in South Africa, employees are still suffering from depression, poor communication skills, and are feeling undervalued; this leads to a lack of cohesiveness and poor interpersonal relationships. Organisations should consider a shift in their approach by incorporating a focus on mental wellness which targets the issues that physical wellness programs do not.
