In Switzerland only* 11% of small companies (50-99 employees) and 19 % of medium sized companies (100-249 employees) implement a health management strategy to the full extent. That also means that many SME are missing a lot of opportunities for better results.

Staying Away from Well-being is a Missed Opportunity for Increased Success.

You will find in this article

  • why companies still stay away from well-being
  • the opportunities that SME who have a systematic approach to well-being can enjoy
  • what you can do to also enjoy those opportunities

1. Why companies still stay away from well-being?

Companies believe that they can compensate for the negative impacts of stress by several means that turned out to be inadequate.

Companies have been used to go “around” stress and compensate for the negative impacts of stress by working more, blaming others for poor performance, cutting costs in other areas of the organisation.

Fact is that more and more people get burned out and that the new generations of workers are not ready to compensate the inefficiency while coping with stress.

Companies need to be ready to face those challenges with an appropriate well-being management strategy and implementation.

Companies also believe that the well-being of a person is the person’s business only and that they cannot act on it.

But fact is that some people might bring back their personal problems at work and have negative impacts on results. We do not say that companies need to control people’s private life, but they can positively influence the work life integration and people’s happiness in several areas of life.

Happy and balanced employees with meaning in their work will definitely contribute more to the company.


2. The opportunities that SME who have a systematic approach to well-being can enjoy

Based on several studies, the challenges and the opportunities in well-being management are pretty clear today and there is no reason any more why companies should still hesitate before investing into well-being management measures and strategies.
