A leader plays an active role in the realisation of set goals and objectives



Slowly, the business workplace is evolving into a more caring environment. Employers are beginning to understand the need to monitor the wellbeing of their employees. Over the last few years, many organisations have come to be in-tune with the mental health of their workforces.
Countries legitimating for the provision of mental first aiders in every organisation is inevitable. However, small business owners are left asking how they can fit in this seemingly important feature into their budget. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Check out how you could manage the wellbeing of the employee while simultaneously keeping your expenses in check: 

Encourage them to be active and live healthily

Well, using this method, you won’t incur any extra fees. Most 21st century jobs involve sitting in front of a computer throughout work hours; leaving little or no time for activeness. As an employer, take it upon yourself to think of ways of encouraging them to be active. For instance, encourage staff to use the stairs instead of the lift also help the team to take the whole lunch hour eating actual lunch, not junk.

Keep them on track

Continually learning new skills helps keep the brain active; which proves to be inevitably beneficial to the wellbeing of individuals. So, set new, achievable goals which keep your employees on-the-go.
Inactiveness could be as a result of idleness, so, encourage your staff to set not only career goals but also business growth. 

Allow for effective communication between you and the staff. 

Most times, employers demand more than what their employers are capable of offering. If you do so, you put pressure on your employees, keep them chasing after goose, and leave them with a stress-filled heart.
So, try to build that employer-employee bridge to facilitate effective communication.

Respect their time

As an employer, put your employee’s plan in high opinion- respect it. Be flexible regarding how and when the job assigned to them is done. Until you take a shift to recognise output rather than hours spent in the office, you would keep on inflicting on the wellbeing of your employee. 

Be involved

The mental health of your employees is affected when they think of you as a dictator where you are to be a leader. A leader plays an active role in the realisation of set goals and objectives. So, be involved in your workforce tasks. 

Deal with conflict constructively

In a team, conflicts break the link between members. Conflicts are sure to come, no doubt. However, as an employer, your response to disputes should be one which has touches of leadership qualities. In order words, assist in promoting good relationships between employees, as this invariably has an impact on their productivity.’

Integrate recognition and praise into your company culture  

Everyone wants to be appreciated. Appreciation gives employees the drive to do more, to become more productive. Adding recognition services to the activities on your business calendar would help foster better wellbeing of your employee.
