We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Sarah Beth, the Senior Well-being and Engagement Consultant at NFP, during one of our 10@10 Growth Series interviews. At NFP, Sarah Beth and her team assist clients in identifying well-being priorities, crafting strategies, and providing support throughout the journey. Their approach emphasizes a holistic and intentional approach to well-being, tailored to each client’s unique needs. Sarah Beth has a wealth of experience in the field, and we’re excited to share some of the key takeaways that came out of the conversation. Here are three key takeaways for HR leaders from our Employee Wellbeing consultant, Jeremiah Watkins’, recent conversation with Sarah Beth:

1. Well-being is an Evolving Practice:

Well-being should be an integral part of both an individual’s lifestyle and a company’s culture. Just as individuals need to adapt and evolve their well-being practices, organizations should weave well-being into their daily operations and identity. Companies that prioritize well-being not only implement well-being programs but become “well companies.” Integrating well-being into the company’s identity and purpose can lead to improved employee engagement, retention, and empowerment.

2. Overcoming Barriers is Important to Your Approach:

Identify and address barriers that hinder well-being practices. Common barriers include time constraints, limited access, and resource challenges. Collaborative efforts within the organization can help find creative solutions to these barriers.

3. Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) Empower Your Team:

Employee Resource Groups are a growing trend. Encourage employees to tap into their unique talents and interests to support others. ERGs can focus on various aspects of well-being, such as mental health, caregiving, diversity, equity, and inclusion, fostering a supportive community within the organization.

Sarah Beth’s insights shed light on the importance of embracing well-being as a continuous journey and integrating it into both personal and organizational identities. As HR leaders, creating a culture of well-being and addressing common barriers can lead to happier and healthier employees.

Start your well-being journey today and remember that small changes, like habit stacking, can lead to meaningful improvements in your overall well-being.
