Step 1: Introduction
Learn about the concept of overall well-being in the company Denkstatt. Understand the significance of promoting well-being and a positive work environment.


Step 2: Understanding the needs
Taking the time to find out what well-being means for your team and your company. Don’t rush to embrace many new kinds of benefits before you’ve figured out what it is your team requires specifically. 


Step 3: How to know these needs?

Take into consideration the organisational culture, processes and realities in the respective work environment. To connect well-being with organisational culture means first of all to determine what is happiness for your team, in your company, in this environment and in this specific work that the company offers.

Step 4: Promote the inclusion
Consider the company’s goals and strategy. Employee well-being is a process that must be managed like all other activities and have their own success indicators associated with the goals of the business.

Make sure you cover all aspects of well-being. Put in a buzzword – to act holistically. It’s not enough to think about massage and not have thoughts about how you help your people recognise and manage their emotions. Or think about a lot of training, but not about how and when they rest. And what it really means to rest.
