Aiming to highlight employees’ physical and mental health issues and how organizations can provide support through employee benefit programs, Loop Health brought together a team of staff leaders to share their insights and experiences in creating a culture of employee well-being.
Over the past year, organizations have seen the impact of the epidemic not only on workers’ physical health, but it has also led to many mental health challenges. HR managers now prioritize employee well-being, focusing on creating a culture that nurtures overall well-being, including the physical, emotional, financial and social aspects.
To learn more about how organizations work to create a culture of well-being, Loop Health organized a Workshop on Creating a Culture of Employee Welfare on October 27, bringing together prominent HR leaders who advocate for overall health. employees.

Introducing the topic, each of the panelists spoke about why employee well-being has become the focus of organizations today and what it’s like in the future. Sri Sudan – Deputy Director of HR at Scripbox, said: “After the epidemic, the talk of prosperity is growing. Corporations now realize that employee well-being must have a multidimensional approach that goes beyond just the physical well-being of employees. Employees are also now asking for things like counseling programs. The workplace culture, where we focus on the overall well-being of employees, is not created overnight, it requires a lot of time and effort. It needs a change of mindset, և employers և employees need to know what to do. ”
Commenting on what employees are looking for in terms of well-being and their role in creating a culture of well-being, Nishant Bhushan – HR, Pi Square Technologies said: “Employees no longer look at welfare as a series of activities that are organized around the year. Their experience in how they are valued for each interaction with other employees in the organization helps them achieve mental and physical health. ”
He added. “Employees have a great zeal and willingness to contribute to health. They can be involved in decision-making of any initiative, making them an integral part of the whole exercise. Building a culture of well-being is not something that a few people dictate what the culture will be like, it is built by each individual in the organization. That way it can be preserved. ”
The discussion participants also discussed that employee well-being is not just an HR function, it is a corporate function where management և employees must all work together to work on it. Employee openness is limited, and although companies provide programs, employees are often skeptical about financial or emotional well-being. It is important for management to educate employees about welfare initiatives.
To Involve Employees Վ To Involve Vani Bhalla Pahva – Corporate Health Coach advised – “This is a high level of employee involvement to succeed, it can convey what pain point you are trying to address and how to do it. The best way to do this is to have a structured approach with concrete results. It is possible to speak to the employees in their own language, to convince them that they will not be judged. ” It was emphasized during the discussion that HR has access to a wealth of employee information that can be combined to better use the entire health plan.
To build a culture of well-being, leaders can believe that well-being is important; it adds value. Manager training և development programs help to change the mindset և develop agility that enables them to work with different workforces. Emotional Intelligence և Communication training in the workplace is important for managers to be able to support their employees.
According to Shveta Singh – HR, Nablasol, “Managers need to empathize with their employees, address their grievances immediately to avoid lack of motivation or quality work. It is really possible to hear what they are saying. “Managers need to foster a culture of knowledge sharing, not knowledge accumulation, which will provide psychological security to make sure people are comfortable where they are.”
Speaking about the traps of not prioritizing health for organizations, Vani mentioned. “Can you sympathize with your people? Եւ establish a connection or relationship on a ‘being’ / personal level. If you are cut off from their well-being, you will be cut off from everything that happens around them. ” Adding to all this, Sri Sudan spoke about the basis of health. “Everything else is in place when you care about the well-being of your employees. If you focus on well-being, it increases employee engagement, productivity, morale, reduces health care costs, and improves employer branding. All of these factors will be traps if organizations do not focus on employee well-being. ”
The key point from the meeting is that creating a culture of well-being is a dynamic process. Organizations need to assess where they are in the health spectrum, where they want to go, and create a structure to get there. They must constantly develop strategies, rearrange and coordinate their approaches to ensure the well-being of employees. Working with an expert will help build sustainable systems.
