Balance between costs and people

We can imagine that you are struggling to balance cutting the employee costs of your organization, while stimulating them to stay productive and motivated. The COVID-19 crisis has shed light on the increasing importance of this matter. Many of us find ourselves dealing with a new range of challenges from regulations requiring people to work from home, to the effects this has personally. How do you find a balance between maintaining low costs, and providing care and attention to your staff? Can investing in a culture of well-being provide a cost advantage? We believe it can.

Research shows that the employees of employers who put wellbeing high on their agenda:

  • show a higher degree of commitment;
  • be more productive;
  • being sick less often; and
  • be more loyal to their employer.

The wellbeing of your employees is therefore crucial to the success of your company and your clients.
