Here are guiding questions to reflect: It starts with acceptance and ensuring a positive culture at the organization 1. What systems are in place at the organization for employees well-being / coping? 2. Do we have organizational psychologists / trained career development staff at the workplace for employee counselling? 3. To ensure work-place civility is an ombudsperson available to mediate when necessary? 4. Is an employee assistance program- EAP available and in practice? 5. Is workplace career coaching available for employees to enhance their productivity? 6. Are employees capacited in evidence- based hope to be optimistic and pragmatic? 7. Are we capacitating leaders for empathy and adaptive leadership? 8. Does the workplace promote psychological safety? These are some actionable items for employee engagement and productivity.
