How Are Your Employees Doing? 

Wellbeing in the five essential and interconnected areas of life supports employee mental health.

Employee Wellbeing

Purpose Wellbeing

Are your employees motivated in their day-to-day lives? People who have a sense of purpose and meaning in their lives are happier, more productive, more focused and suffer far less from mental health problems.  


Social Wellbeing

Do your employees report having positive, supportive relationships in their lives and at work? Social relationships act as a buffer against stress, improve immunity and cardiovascular function. They also protect against depression, anxiety and substance misuse.


Physical Wellbeing

Are your employees in good physical health? Seventy-five percent of medical expenses come from mostly preventable illnesses. Employees who attend to their physical health experience less stress, take fewer sick days, are happier and more productive.   


Financial Wellbeing

How financially stable and secure are your employees? Do they have the financial resources to live in safe places and make healthy choices or are they burdened by financial worries? Financial wellbeing and mental health are closely linked.


Community Wellbeing

Do your employees feel safe, connected and have a sense of belonging in the communities where they live and work? Employees who feel they belong collaborate, contribute to and promote a positive workplace culture. The workplace is most peoples' primary community.
