Navigating an unpredictable future requires a healthy, engaged and productive workforce.
Most organisations don't do change and uncertainty 'well'.
Often, because they fail to recognise that each of us has a different psychological response and emotional reaction when faced with complexity, ambiguity and the 'unknown'.
Some are excited by it, others may find that it makes them feel anxious.
As a starter for ten, a successful approach to change or transition involves meeting your workforce's psychological need to be engaged, reassured and valued.
Of course, adverse consequences for your people will sometimes be inevitable.
The challenge for most organisations today is that the workplace wellbeing which serves as a foundation for personal resilience is at worryingly low levels.
The conditions in which we work are having a direct negative impact on the mental health we all need to be happy, healthy and resilient.
This is a huge quality of life issue for your people.
It's a problem for your organisation, too.
Today, this lack of wellbeing is undermining your productivity, directly affecting your bottom line.
Tomorrow, it may affect the ability of your staff, managers and leaders to rise to the challenges that change may bring.
But there is good news.
In addition to improving the lives of your people, investment in wellbeing and resilience results in a range of organisational benefits.
These include greater employee satisfaction, improved decision-making and operational performance.
Crucially for organisations operating under tight budgetary constraints, choosing to prioritise mental wellbeing and the resilience of your people also delivers financial Return on Investment (RoI).
