There are many studies showing that the well-being of employees is a critical success factor for organisations. As a result, many organisations have focused on improving the well-being of the people, including developing organisation wide wellbeing programs to promote better health outcomes.

Previous studies have shown that helping the senior management and leadership of an organisation to understand and acknowledge the direct and indirect connections between employee well-being (including mental health outcomes) and organisational aspects such as:

  • productivity
  • organisational citizenship behaviours
  • organisational and task commitment,
  • intention to leave
  • creativity and innovation
  • team working outcomes

has a range of positive benefits.
