Make a visible, long-term commitment to tackling causes of work-related stress and to promote workm8te wellbeing in your workplace.
Don’t wait until your workm8tes are burnt out or injured before you act. Prevention is key.
A charter, commitment, or vision – what you call it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that senior leadership own it and believe in it. It must be visible, understood by all workm8tes, and acted upon – not stuck in a folder or up on a pinboard to be forgotten.
Each workplace is different, and you need to own your vision, but we do have some pointers to help you and your leadership team craft a wellbeing vision for a stress-free, safe workplace.
It should be a concise statement that describes the future state for your workm8tes’ wellbeing and no-stress initiative. The statement should answer the question – what kind of workplace do we want to create? A clear inspiration for workers on the future state.
