Winning the business case to invest in employee health and wellbeing can be challenging.
Last week, we hosted a roundtable discussion on this very topic at the EB Connect Conference in London, where we gained valuable insight from HR, reward and employee benefits managers and professionals.
Key findings on the day included the fact that mental health has been pushed well up the health and wellbeing agenda, while it was deemed imperative to have robust data and hard facts to present to the Board, as well as good metrics in place to measure engagement in the workplace, in order to build an effective and compelling business case for investing in employee wellbeing.
Here are some of the things you could do to help convince the decision makers that it’s a worthwhile investment.
- Do your research
- Get your figures right
- Include strong evidence
- Ensure you put in place effective measurements for success
- Maintain ongoing communication
We’ve created some useful planning tools to help you formulate the right health and wellbeing strategy for your business and then win the investment needed to implement that strategy. Our handy strategy planner and step by step guide to helping you develop a powerful business case can be found on our resource hub.
