Unlocking SME Success Through Workplace Wellbeing

Navigating the daily challenges of running an SME is no small feat, and the wellbeing of your team is crucial to your company’s performance and profitability. 

Here, we explore five compelling reasons why fostering a positive workplace culture is indispensable: 

  1. Boosted productivity through happiness 

It’s proven! A study by The University of Warwick revealed that happiness directly correlates with productivity, with happy employees outperforming their peers by 12%. By fostering an environment of wellbeing, your business can enhance output and efficiency. 

2.  Attracting and retaining top talent 

Recruitment and staff turnover is expensive, with the average cost of hiring a new starter at around £3000. Small businesses have a unique opportunity to attract the best talent in the market, with research showing that those working at SMEs believe they have a better workplace culture (compared to larger companies) and enjoy the ‘tight knit’ community (according to research by Westfield Health).  

3. Reducing absenteeism  

Stress, in both work and personal lives, significantly contributes to absenteeism. Gallup research highlights that increasing your employee’s workplace happiness you can reduce absenteeism by as much as 41%! Imagine what your business can achieve if you reduce the number of sick says that staff take… 

4. Enhance your reputation 

It’s a competitive world out there, especially for small to medium sized businesses who are focused on growth. Create a positive workplace and empower your employees to become brand advocates. Research by mental health charity Mind tells us that 60% of employees would be more likely to recommend their organisation as a good place to work if their employer supports mental wellbeing. 

5. Morally right, strategically vital 

Doing the right thing is important, but can you afford not to? A study by Gallup noted that profitability improved by 21% in organisations where employee wellbeing and engagement was a priority.
