Keys to developing well-being in companies

Some thoughts from Jeanne Renard, Executive Vice President, Human Resources for Edenred

The question of well-being at work is in everyone’s mind: from the employee who wonders why he bothers to get out of bed in the morning, to the manager, who knows that happy employees are more innovative, motivated and efficient. The Edenred-Ipsos barometer shows some positive ways forward to be explored in order to improve satisfaction at work.

​It also revealed the extent to which this well-being is linked to the development of individuals and their skills.

​Cette notion est fondamentale et devient, à mon sens, la responsabilité première d’un DRH.

So, if the most important factor contributing to an employee’s well-being is personal development, then the most important HR driver to boost the company’s performance is ​the employability of its people. ​This fundamental notion is becoming, in my opinion, the HR Manager’s primary responsibility.

Employability demands the reinvention of training in the company, role play exercises in project mode and closer contacts with adjacent worlds, such as start-up incubators, co-working developments or skills sponsorship.

Learning, experimenting, transcending oneself, embracing movement and change: these are the keys to becoming more employable! And like in the world of sport, it is all a matter of practice. Employability is also a matter of promotion, of heightening one’s image internally and externally, using platforms like LinkedIn or Twitter.

Moreover, employees perceive digital technology as a new factor of wellness at work. This is why policies to develop the "employee experience" and the digital culture are so important.

​39% of the employees surveyed in the Edenred-Ipsos barometer consider that their management does not pay sufficient attention to their skills and training.​

​Employability: an individual's ability to acquire and maintain the skills required to find or keep a job.
