The needs of the workforce are evolving. So too should companys approach to designing the policies, programs, and benefits intended to support their people’s wellbeing.
Over the past decade, we’ve seen wellbeing workshops move away from attempting to inspire and motivate behavioral change. There has been a growing focus on ensuring that workshops provide practical tools and develop participants' skills so that they are able to take their first steps toward better mental and physical health.
But is it enough? What else can be done to encourage and sustain positive behavioural change?
The answer lies in creating group experiences.
Learning levels up when people move from a state of intellectual knowing to understanding through personal, felt experiences. Embodied knowing is self-motivating. It drives continued action on an individual level.
When businesses add a group dynamic and continuity to the learning experiences they provide, they begin to develop a community that prioritizes wellbeing and the energy and vigor it brings to people’s lives. In today's fragmented, hybrid working world, the power of bringing people together should not be underestimated.
The community supports ongoing action over time. This helps to rewire the brain and embeds change - making it more likely that greater numbers of people will stick with the healthy habits they were trying to establish.
