Work and organizational well-being: what do workers ask of companies?

At Trainect we deal with organizational well-being , that is, all those actions, solutions and strategies whose main purpose is to measure, improve, and implement well-being within the corporate context.

We believe that it is increasingly important that the concept of Corporate Wellness crosses the boundaries of the organization , not only because it is now proven by various studies and research that a widespread level of well-being brings greater productivity and return to the Business, but above all because it is becoming a a need increasingly requested by people themselves.

In fact, as age decreases, male and female workers tend less and less to see an insurmountable boundary between professional and private life. This not only makes the dimensions more liquid and superimposable with each other, but makes it increasingly clear that to work well you need to feel good and vice versa.

It seems necessary to us, therefore, to start from them, from people, to investigate this concept more deeply and to discover what solutions we can give them .

To do this, nothing is more effective than asking them directly what they would like from the Company for their well-being. Below is the result of the report.
