Employees Need High Wellbeing for High Performance

Wellbeing affects the number of sick days people take, their job performance, burnout and their likelihood to leave your organization. And managers have the power to make or break the culture of wellbeing.

In partnership with leading economists, psychologists and other scientists, we studied wellbeing in more than 98% of the world's population.

How employees rate these five elements affects your business outcomes:

Social: You have meaningful friendships in your life.

Financial: You manage your money well.

Community: You like where you live.

Physical: You have energy to get things done.
