Workplace Wellbeing

Workplace Wellbeing Program has been developed to be part of the Smart Health Community Program. It aims to assist organisations in complying with applicable legal requirements, and  at the same time support the human capital enhancing their health and wellbeing status.

The pandemic forced employees and employers to undergo considerable changes in the way they interact, in an effort to adapt to the new reality. Employers are called to find new ways of doing business according to which organizations must change how they operate along with the role of offices in generating secure, successful and rewarding careers.

At the same time, ongoing pandemic has blurred the lines between personal, social and professional commitments. Employees expect employers to offer better conditions considering their safety, health and wellbeing. 

Curis Workplace Wellbeing Program caters for the organization’s employees physical, mental and emotional health. We help employers to recognized that they play an influential role in helping employees curtail unhealthy behaviors and realized the importance of employee mental health as a positive wellness outcome.

The program consists of 3 main pillars:

  • Occupational Health 
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • “Organisation’s” Smart Health Community

 Regardless of the legal obligations of the employer to comply with the local legislation, the program has been designed to support the following Sustainable Development Goals of the UN:

  • SDG 03: Good Health & Wellbeing
  • SDG 08: Decent Work & Economic Growth
  • SDG  11 : Sustainable Cities & Communities
  • SDG  17: Partnerships for the Goals

Methodology for creating one

Step #1: Define organisation’s goals 

This step requires the organisation’s management and HR leadership to define the Workplace Wellbeing Strategy of the organisation’s considering employees, physical, mental, emotional and financial wellbeing. In defining the strategy organisation’s regulatory obligations, health and safety risk assessment, and the employee community profile should be considered. Once defined, the strategy will broken into short term and long term goals. (For information regarding employer’s obligation for monitoring employee health in Cyprus, please click here

Step #2: Build a plan 

A detailed plan of actions to meet the goals set by the strategy defined at Step 01 should be developed. If the organisation is required to engage a physician with specialisation in Occupational Health for complying, then such physician is contracted and a selection of services from Curis Employee Assistance Program are selected to create a dedicated plan based on the organisation’s needs.

Step #3: Communicate and implement

Organisation’s management informs employees about the organisation’s strategy and service offering of the specific plan available. At this stage employees are given access to MyCuris® Personal Health Application. The application will allow the employee to access the services and benefits offered, follow campaigns and monitor progress on targets set by the management. 

Step #4: Measure performance

Employers are not allowed to have access to individual employee records. Curis Workplace Wellbeing Scorecard allows organisation’s representative (usually HR leadership) to monitor performance per department, location or functionality (job). The scorecard consists of key performance indicators to measure physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Step #5: Evaluate and amend

At least twice a year, strategic targets are benchmarked against actual results, and corrective measures are considered. An employee satisfaction survey is carried out once a year.
