Work well-being: what it is and how it is achieved

Updated: Jan 7

Considering the amount of time spent in work environments, it is essential for organizations to be concerned about the working well-being of their employees and contractors.

Indeed, a healthy and participatory work environment increases productivity, sense of responsibility and employee motivation. Elements that positively affect business performance and company turnover.

But what exactly is meant by occupational well-being and what are the factors that influence corporate well-being?

The key words for corporate well-being are: collaboration, peaceful internal climate, flexibility, functional information flow. Goals that can be achieved with careful vision and with the help of technological innovation. Just as we do at Qomprendo by applying technological tools to transform the work environment.

What is meant by occupational well-being: definition

To realize occupational well-being, we need to start with its definition. The concept of occupational well-being concerns an organization's ability to ensure and promote the well-being of its workers on several levels: it embraces physical well-being, psychological well-being, and social well-being. Strategies geared toward the well-being of its employees can be applied in any type of company, with the aim of promoting collaboration and fostering a more relaxed climate in the professional environment.

Worker well-being is a topic that began to attract interest around the 1930s, hand in hand with the focus on safety in work settings. Initially, corporate well-being was defined exclusively as physical well-being. It was with the Human Relations movement that the meaning of occupational well-being also extended to the human side of the person, taking into consideration the motivational and social aspects.

The concept of overall well-being of the individual in the workplace was also introduced at the normative level, which is achieved by achieving a balance between:

  • work

  • working environment

  • leisure time

That is, Wellness as a synonym for safe working conditions, promotion of activities related to employee health, and improvement of the working environment.

How well-being can be realized in the work environment

The combination of work well-being and productivity has important meaning for both the company and the workers. But how does one achieve well-being at work?

In order to build a healthy, collaborative, and productive environment, risk factors must first be identified: what makes workers dissatisfied?

Both practical and psychological aspects affect employee dissatisfaction, such as: inadequate equipment, working hours that are too long or inflexible, low wages, conflicting relationships with co-workers, authoritarian attitudes on the part of management, lack of decision-making power, and difficulty in reconciling work and one's private life.

And how can the company improve the working conditions of its co-workers and employees?

To create a healthy work environment, the company must first understand its critical issues by getting in touch with those who live the work environment every day: the workers.

Qomprendo has designed a platform at the service of companies and employees to learn about critical issues that arise in the work environment. By shedding light on the issues, in fact, it is possible to intervene and create a real plan for corporate well-being.
