Over the past two years, a lot has changed especially for India Inc. The focus on employee wellbeing is among the few positive changes that organisations are inculcating in their people policies. A healthy workforce can foster a growth-oriented workplace environment. Great Place to Work® partnered with MediBuddy to launch the only public study in the space of workplace wellness to understand the building blocks of creating a workplace culture that fosters employee health and wellbeing, thus enabling high performance.
The second year of this exclusive study on workplace wellness witnessed several exemplary leadership examples at India Inc. The study captures the experience of over 12000 employees representing the voice of more than 2.4 lac employees. The research is based on a comprehensive and unique framework that provides a benchmark for both the organisation and the individual employee. The framework enables the organisation to build a culture that fosters a healthy and high-performing workplace and nudges individual employees to take ownership of their wellbeing.
Based on a comprehensive and rigorous assessment, Great Place to Work® has identified ‘India’s 15 Best Workplaces in Health and Wellness,’ where the organisations have well-designed practices for workplace wellness. Especially for this year, a special category recognition ‘Supporting Employees and their Families during the COVID Crisis’ was conferred on 10 organisations for going above and beyond and their relentless efforts.
Preeti Malhotra, Practice Head – Wellness & Partnerships, Great Place to Work® said, “We launched our Wellness Practice with a vision of Making India a Healthy Place to Work and are committed to partner with organisations to help them create workplace cultures that prioritise and nurture employee wellbeing as part of their company ethos. It has been great to partner with MediBuddy, one of the leading digital healthcare brands to spread awareness and bring forward the importance of employee wellness as an essential part of people strategy for organisations. In the second year of the research, it was incredible to see how leaders at India Inc. stepped up to support employees and their families during the pandemic and also contribute to the society at large.”
