Eighty-three per cent of employees say it is up to the employer to facilitate well-being in the workplace. Well-being at work is a key priority for employees.
Over the last decade our world has increased its focus on individual well-being. There is a huge amount of information available and education offered on how to enhance personal well-being by reducing stress and being more physically active, but when it comes to our workplaces, do we really know what well-being means?
Do Employers really take notice of these changes taking place?
Because we now live longer and work for extended hours and well into our twilight years, workplace well-being becomes a key element to employee attraction, retention and satisfaction. It's not just important that workplaces prioritise well-being; it's vital for their success.
With whom does the responsibility lie to ensure this is happening? Using data-driven insights, social researchers Ashley Fell and Mark McCrindle have surveyed thousands of employees on this topic to better equip managers, leaders and employees with a thorough understanding of what workplace well-being is, why it is important and how to achieve it.

Along with co-authoring Work Wellbeing, Mark is the author of three books on emerging trends and social change: The ABC of XYZ: Understanding the Global Generations, Word Up: A Lexicon and Guide to Communication in the 21st Century and The Power of Good.
