The workplace wellbeing guide for small business has been developed by Business SA to highlight how it is possible and achievable for small businesses to integrate health, safety and wellbeing into their business practices.
For small businesses, time and resources can be tight and self-care, health and wellbeing are commonly considered a luxury. However, if you want to increase productivity and retain your employees, the best way to do this is to have a positive workplace that places a high value on staff health and wellbeing.
Knowing where to start, what is realistic, what is cost effective and what is achievable, along with everything else that needs to be done, is important.
The guide is designed in two parts:
- The first part is dedicated to the small business owner and is designed to help you build your smartest business strategy – your self-care.
- The second part demonstrates how workplace wellbeing is essential for businesses to thrive, and provides easy and inexpensive tips on how to build a healthy and safe working culture for your team.
