Alexander Mann Solutions is creating more opportunities for flexible working, investing in remote-working technology and enhancing its communications with employees, it was announced July 8th. The company has invested in Lync software so that employees can log in at any time, and has refined its home-working policy. David Health, chief people officer at Alexander Mann Solutions, commented, "Happy, engaged employees are more productive, deliver optimum results for clients and are more likely to stay with the organisation for longer, even acting as brand ambassadors. As a provider of talent management consultancy, we know that good practice starts at home. Optimising our own employee engagement programme allows us to deliver the best possible advice to clients on creating and honing their own engagement strategies."

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored ways to encourage wellbeing at work. According to Yourwellness Magazine, "Maintaining a healthy ‘life/work’ balance can be very difficult. Many people are in a state of constant flux – juggling social, family and work commitment in an often haphazard manner that can leave you feeling exhausted and imposed upon. It’s sometimes difficult to live in the ‘here and now’ and pay sufficient attention to your wellbeing, if you’re constantly thinking about what you need to do in the next day, week, month, etc. And if you also suffer from a long standing illness or chronic disability, achieving the right balance can be even more problematic."

Yourwellness Magazine explained that employers need to offer sensitivity and support to staff members that face these challenges, and to let affected staff know that they can devout attention to their conditions and attend appointments with their doctor without having to worry about losing their jobs. Yourwellness Magazine commented that good communication with staff on these matters is essential, and employers and employees need to sit down and devise a plan that allows the affected employee to manage their condition without their duties or productivity being compromised.
