Case study: Wellbeing and Employee Engagement: The Evidence Whitepaper
The wellbeing subgroup was launched in August 2013 to build on the paper “Why wellbeing matters: Sustaining Employee Engagement and Performance”. Chaired by Wendy Cartwright, former HRD for the Olympic Delivery Authority, the group sought to build upon the great work already taking place and provide a “wellbeing, nailing the evidence” document.
The evidence in this whitepaper report has been drawn from three distinct perspectives: academic research, research by consultancies and organisational case studies. There are small case study vignettes in the main body of the report, but more detailed case studies for each of these are available on this website.
Please access the whitepaper here. For those who cannot access the report from slideshare, there is a download link at the bottom of this page.
This paper sets out the evidence for the linkage between employee engagement and wellbeing, and the consequential impact on individual and organisational performance. Engage for Success started to investigate the importance of the links between engagement and wellbeing because of a groundswell of requests for us to examine this rich subject area.
This report is written for an audience of chief executives and HR directors as well as wellbeing and employee engagement specialists – whether they may work in-house or as external consultants. That said, we hope this will be a useful paper for all managers and leaders, regardless of whether they work in public, private or not-for-profit sectors, and regardless of organisational size.
This report builds on and is complementary to the paper entitled Nailing the Evidence, which Engage for Success published in November 2012. Our intention is that this Wellbeing and Employee Engagement report will add to the increasing body of evidence that demonstrates why employee engagement and wellbeing matter to workers and help drive sustainable organisational performance outcomes.
