We are living through an era of unprecedented change. Our society is ageing, technology has revolutionised every aspect of our lives and the world is moving faster than at any time in history. In order to achieve a healthy workplace, “modern day leaders” need a unique set of knowledge, skills and behaviours in order to manage the challenges ahead.
Did you know …
- Employees from four generations will work side by side for the first time in history. [CIPD]
- “Poor management style” is one of the top three causes for work related stress [Annual CIPD survey 2015].
- Mental ill health costs the UK economy £100 billion each year against a total NHS budget of £115 billion [Norman Lamb, “The importance of the workplace in achieving one agenda for mental and physical health”]
- One in four people will experience a mental ill health problem in any given year [Annual CIPD survey 2015] with the total number of cases of work related stress, depression or anxiety in 2015/16 being 488,000 cases [Labour Force Survey (LFS)].
- The average cost per UK employee of sickness absence alone has now hit £554 a year [CIPD].
- The number one reason people give for leaving their job is their line managers [CIPD] and we know that the typical cost of replacing a member of staff is now a staggering £30,614 per employee [Labour Force Survey (LFS)].
How “healthy” is your organisation?
- Do your leaders and managers know how to develop happier, healthier people and workplaces?
- Do they understand the importance of employee engagement for health and well-being?
- Are your leaders and managers confident “people leaders” who can maximise their teams’ performance and resources?
- Do they know what neuroscience tells us about how to develop positive workplace cultures?
- Do they hold those crucial, if difficult, conversations?
- Are they able to sell the vision and engage people to deliver sustained change?
At Practice Solutions, we recognise there is a need for more socially and interpersonally skilled managers and if organisations want to survive, be competitive and flourish in the future, we believe doing nothing is not an option.
Do you need help… shaping the health of your organisation? Developing a healthier, more positive workplace culture? Engaging the workforce in getting the best performance? If so, come and join us at our workshop “Building strong leadership for a healthier tomorrow” on 9 February.
