HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2020: Wellbeing key to organisational resilience
Not only has it been one of the biggest transitions for the workforce, it has also been an exceptionally stressful time for employees as they adapt to the new world of remote working and balancing between work and family.
Having said that, employee wellbeing has never been more important for organisations as they strive to provide support to their people – both physically and mentally – during these challenging times.
Speaking exclusively at the HR Tech Festival Asia Online 2020 which is happening from September 29 to October 1, Rashmi Sharma, Learning and Wellbeing Lead for Southeast Asia & Australasia, Unilever, will provide insights into the company’s approach and experiences in driving employee wellbeing globally.
“We know, by research and also intuitively, that this crisis and the ongoing hybrid/ remote working is driving significant increase in workload. Added to that, the return to work in new circumstances are creating new forms of anxiety,” she told HRM Asia.
“Formal manager support time is lower than it used to be. So the associated risks to our physical and mental health such as stress, burnout & exhaustion are very much real.
“Employers must get involved and educate and enable wellbeing, especially for the mid- leadership levels. The companies & teams that win will be those that have the strongest capacity to bounce back, and wellbeing is key to developing that resilience among our leaders,” she added.
Saurabh Nigam, Vice President of Human Capital at Omidyar Network, which is one of the world’s leading impact investing organisation, will share how organisations adopt employee recognition programs to raise employee morale, attract and retain key employees, elevate productivity, increase competitiveness, revenues and profitability, improve quality, safety and customer service, and reduce employee stress, absenteeism and turnover.
“A positive employee reward and recognition strategy essentially reflects the conviction that nothing is better than a sincere “thank you/job well done”,” he said.
“In an era of increasing competitiveness for top talent, a well-managed recognition program can provide valuable help for employers that must use every available means to attract and retain the best employees and keep them engaged and productive.”
