Revitalising a workforce is an extremely important element of maintaining an energised and dynamic workplace with employees who are fully focused on productivity. Any organisation that realises the value of investing in the wellbeing of their workforce will undoubtedly reap the benefits with an increase in morale, higher retention rates and overall improved performance.

There are several strategies that can be implemented to revitalise a flagging workforce and the primary one is ensuring to promote a culture of a healthy work life balance which is paramount to wellbeing and controlling stress, hopefully keeping the dreaded burnout at bay. Encourage employees to take their breaks and lunch times, using them appropriately and not to catch up on work. Similarly, encourage employees to use up all of their annual leave entitlements so as to be able to fully disconnect from thoughts of work. This shows that employees respect their employees and take their needs into consideration.

Some employees incorporate wellness programmes into their working schedule that cater for both physical and mental health with gym memberships, on site facilities, fitness challenges, healthy eating programmes, mindfulness sessions and regular, specialised workshops that deal with ways of managing and dealing with stress and how to implement these on a daily basis. Providing resources and support for all employees with regards to overall well being sends a very clear message that the company values its employees as individuals with differing needs, not just workers.

Additionally, professional development opportunities such as extra training or courses will not only enhance employees skills but show a firm commitment by recognising these skills and talents and pledging opportunities for continuous professional and personal growth.

Communication is key so employers should create an open and transparent dialogue  between themselves and their employees by offering regular and scheduled meetings, both individual and group based, which can foster a sense of being valued. Employees who feel listened to and know that their concerns are addressed appropriately and taken seriously, are more likely to be more engaged and enthusiastic in the workplace.

The achievements of employees should be regularly monitored and positively acknowledged. By recognising the efforts that employees put into their work, whether this is by public recognition or other incentives such as bonuses, it boosts morale and forms a positive, uplifting atmosphere. When an employee feels appreciated and valued, it contributes significantly to job satisfaction and motivation.

Another factor that can impact positively upon employees' wellbeing and how they feel is the physical workspace. A thoughtfully designed office that is clean, comfortable and spacious can inspire employees to do their best.

Revitalising a workforce requires a holistic approach which addresses several facets of human personality such as physical, mental and professional aspects. By placing emphasis on employee wellbeing, promoting communication, investing in the development of all employees and creating a supportive working environment, a workforce can feel revitalised and ready for achieving continual success.
