Here at Barnett Waddingham we believe that there are six pillars of employee wellbeing that impact how an employee performs in their role. Our holistic approach to wellbeing builds on the ancient Greek philosophy of Eudaimonia; supported by our modern six pillars ideology.

By implementing a successful wellbeing strategy which addresses the needs of the workforce across each of the six pillars, this can have significant benefits to the employer, some of which include:

  • Increased productivity
  • Decreased absence
  • Reduced accidents
  • Engagement and commitment
  • Attraction and retention
  • Reduced insurance premiums
