Research shows workplace stress leads to an increase of almost 50% in voluntary turnover. Employees prefer workplace wellbeing to material benefits. And they’re willing to leave their current jobs to obtain it.
Wellbeing comes from one place, and one place only, a positive culture.
Creating a positive and healthy culture for your team rests on a few major principles. Here are six essential principles that we teach to create a positive culture of workplace well-being:
• Leading by example, from the top to the bottom.
• Providing support for one another, including offering kindness and compassion when others are struggling.
• Avoiding blame and forgiving mistakes.
• Inspiring one another at work.
• Emphasizing the meaningfulness of the work.
• Treating one another with respect, gratitude, trust, and integrity.
In summary, a positive workplace is more successful over time because it increases positive emotions and well-being. This, in turn, improves people’s relationships with each other and amplifies their abilities and their creativity. It buffers against negative experiences such as stress, thus improving employees’ ability to bounce back from challenges and difficulties. And, it attracts employees, making them more loyal to the leader and to the organization as well as bringing out their best strengths. When organizations develop positive, healthy cultures they achieve significantly higher levels of organizational effectiveness, including financial performance, customer satisfaction, productivity, and employee engagement.
