Engagement and well-being shouldn’t be separated

Firms are using employee reward programs not only to boost engagement but also support workers' overall well-being.

Firms are using employee reward programs not only to boost engagement but also support workers' overall well-being.

In fact, a recent study from Gallup suggests that businesses trying to choose between investing in staff member engagement or workforce well-being should not pick one over the other – as companies can accomplish both at the same time.

According to the research, employee engagement is a predictor of well-being, more so than other factors such as hours worked, vacation days taken and flexible working arrangements. Engaged workers actually logged longer hours for their jobs.

"Employers can improve both aspects at the same time," said Jim Harter, Gallup's chief scientist of workplace management and wellbeing. "The nature of the work environment may have more of an effect than workplace policies on overall well-being."

One way businesses can boost staff members' engagement and well-being is by looking at the physical elements of the office and what can be changed to promote a more positive atmosphere.
