Organisational Culture for WellBeing and Performance

Importance of organisational culture to effective governance and leadershipThis report from the CIPD highlights the importance of Organisational Culture to the success and well-being of our workforces. Numerous highly public corporate scandals, most of which were rooted in poor or poorly aligned organisational cultures, have put culture in the spotlight once and for all. But changing or creating good workplace cultures is not an exact science, takes time, and is influenced by many variables. Even understanding what the culture or sub-cultures really are is challenging, and it is often said that leaders think they know what the culture is, but rarely fully understand it.CIPD

Psychologically healthy workplacesThere is a growing trend that the workplace needs to be a psychologically healthy place to work. The trend is not new. It started about 30 years ago, but has taken a long time for organisations to pick up on the benefits. Even now, many organisations see their obligation to their employees as little more than rudimentary safety and preventing harm. Organisations that have picked up on the benefits place themselves in the best position to be successful and prosperous. Turning the workplace into a psychologically healthy place to work cuts costs, increases productivity and opens the door to innovation and high performance. Derek Mowbray

Wellbeing at Work Policy DocumentWellbeing is more than simply the absence of illness, it allows employees to live a balanced life while taking a constructive role at work and in society. Although wellbeing can be affected by circumstances outside work, symptoms of a wellbeing imbalance, i.e. stress, are often displayed at work. It is therefore important that employees recognise this and confide in their managers; and that managers are able to recognise symptoms and are able to support employees.Derek Mowbray
The Wellness Imperative: Creating More Effective OrganizationsGlobally, organizations tend to regard wellness in the workplace as an HR issue of little business importance. Less than half of all employees worldwide work for organizations that actively promote health and well-being. Fewer still work for organizations that see wellness as a strategic tool that can add real value to top-line growth and bottom-line performance. Yet, new research suggests that wellness is an extremely powerful element that can play a significant role in employee engagement, organizational productivity, talent retention, and creativity and innovation.

The Managers Code – connecting wellbeing with performanceA Code is an outward demonstration of intent. A Code is a device for providing a focus for everyone’s behaviour, and is the benchmark against which behaviour can be judged.

A Positive Work Culture: Essential for Wellbeing and Performance at WorkBuilding a Positive Work Culture requires attention to be paid to the principal cultural foundations of the organisation – the purpose, the structure, the processes and the behaviours of the controllers. If these are built to a specification of virtuous intent, values, psychological contract, trust and commitment, then employee engagement is almost assured. This results in high levels of wellbeing and performance of staff and the organisation.Derek Mowbray
