A highly topical article from McKinsey about Wellness at work and how management structures at work can have a direct influence on employees’ wellness – negatively or positively.
Interesting questions the article poses around, what does it take to improve employee wellness? Is it, in fact, the business of business to do so?
Members of the Consortium for Advancing Adult Learning & Development (CAALD), a group of learning authorities whose members include researchers, corporate and not-for-profit leaders, and McKinsey experts, recently debated these issues at its second annual meeting, in Boston. Their discussion suggests that wellness and work remain uneasy bedfellows, but our understanding of what it takes to make progress has grown, and so should the willingness of leaders to invest in their people at a time when the emerging workplace is confronting them with stress-inducing change.
