Episode 27 – Season 2

Published: June 22, 2022

The Workplace Wellbeing Book - Done as a Podcast | Part 2 "Tactics - implementing a wellbeing strategy " Strategy

Part 2 contains chapters that cover the key areas of wellbeing such as mental and financial wellbeing but also lots of tips to support implementing a wellbeing strategy. Regular listeners will probably have picked up the structure we tried to apply to all of our episodes. We tried to outline a problem that impacted on wellbeing, discuss the evidence, discuss potential solutions and then find out how we could implement the solutions in our workplace. These tips and ideas form the backbone of part 2.

Chapter 6: Roles and Responsibility. 

We were constantly surprised by the link between what you could call standard business practice and wellbeing. This is covered in this chapter which looks at how you select your team, the roles you give them, their responsibilities and other working practices. 

Tools such as an organization chart and a job description which must be part of management 101 really can have an effect on wellbeing if done properly and this came up time and again.

Chapter 7: Communication.   

Just like leadership, communications has probably been one of the top 3 business book subjects of all time so we weren’t surprised that it came up regularly with our guests. No clear trend emerged on the subject throughout our 2 series, other than clear communications and listening to your team help wellbeing.

Chapter 8: Psychological Wellbeing. This is a subject that has become increasingly recognized as an area of employer responsibility.  This is a problem that was often swept under the carpet in the past but is now benefiting from a much more open debate as in recent years the full scale of the problem has become clear. Throughout the podcast series, we have discussed the different types of mental health issues, the impact of work on people’s health plus a range of potential solutions.

Chapter 9: Financial wellbeing. 

It is an area where responsibility for the employer can be debated, however, the impact is huge.  We have discussed the impact on productivity at work and the impact on the individuals concerned. A lot of effort is going into the subject and it is an area that we believe pays huge dividends for employers that support their staff.

Chapter 10: Physical wellbeing.  

It’s a mark of how far we have come in the wellbeing space that the fear of losing one’s life or a limb doesn’t concern the majority of us at work and that when you ask modern managers about wellbeing in the workplace, their thoughts often start with mental health issues.

So in this chapter we aren’t going to discuss health and safety because thankfully it is well covered elsewhere and workplaces are safer than ever. So instead we cover some other areas of physical wellbeing that our guests have discussed

This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:

Chapter 11: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.  We had some debate about a chapter on DEI and whether it should make up part of a book on wellbeing. DEI came up a lot with our guests and is one of the subjects we could have invited many more speakers to cover.

It was intertwined in lots of other subjects and our guests strongly linked it to wellbeing. The positives of a diverse workplace made for a happy environment whilst there was a link between lack of equity and inclusion with low morale and wellbeing.

Chapter 12: Best practices – some lessons from the workplace.   We couldn’t do this podcast come book without including a chapter of some of the best clips from people working directly for large employers with responsibility for improving wellbeing.

Some had a focused wellbeing job role whilst others were volunteering. Covid 19 dominated the news agenda for the whole of the time we were recording the workplace wellbeing podcast and its impact on wellbeing inevitably came out, especially when discussing real-life examples.
