8 Tips For Chekcing In On Your Employee Wellness

Employee wellbeing is one of the most important factors in creating a company culture. If you notice that employee might not be doing ok, take the time to think about how you will approach your co-worker. Here are some of our top tips for approaching co-workers and trying to increase employee wellbeing.

1. Timing is key

Try asking your employee or colleague if they have 20 minutes to go for a walk or grab a coffee with you, and ask during that conversation. Naturally checking in is much better than abruptly walking up to their desk and asking if they are okay.

2. Keep it simple

When ready to broach the topic, your approach can be as simple as asking, “Are you okay….I have noticed you have been a little quiet the last week or so?”. Don’t beat around the bush, cryptic questions may lead to cryptic answers and will make it bad for you to communicate together.

 

3. Be a good listener

It is so important to actually listen to what is being said and make no judgements about what may be confided.

4. Don’t rush to offer solutions

Don’t rush to offer solutions, everyone’s situation is different and what may seem like the perfect solution for you, may be the complete opposite for another person.

5. “How can I help?”

A much better approach is to listen and then ask, “how can I help?”. Make sure that your employees don’t feel alone, and if there’s anything you can do as either their manager or just as a friend they should know that.

6. Encourage action

If your co-worker is not feeling okay, encourage positive action like speaking to a professional. If work is the cause of a co-workers concern, encourage them to initiate a conversation with their leaders or their people and culture or HR officer. If your employer offers an employee assistance program, make sure you remind them to use it.

7. Check in regularly

These conversations with your employees should not be a one-off affair. Follow up with them in the coming days and weeks. It shows you care and continues the conversation.

8. Be prepared for denial

What do you do if the person is in denial? You can’t push someone into opening up, so if this occurs let them know that you are always around to talk if they need a listening ear. Also, some people might not feel comfortable opening up in the workplace, which is understandable. Keep this in mind and if you encounter resistance, suggest your co-worker speak to a family member or close friend.
