UC Davis provides the resources, action plans, and strategies that managers and supervisors may need to contribute to the overall well-being of employees.
When employees feel their employer cares about their well-being, they’re 38 percent more engaged. It starts with acknowledging all areas of employee well-being including physical health, meaningful work, stress, emotional challenges, and work-life integration.
Managers play a significant role in employee well-being and engagement, which we know are two drivers in becoming a great place to work.
- Employees rate their relationships with direct supervisors as more important to job satisfaction then benefits.
- A strong manager relationship leads to more productive, efficient and loyal employees who create less conflict.
- Employees supervised by a highly engaged manager are 59 percent more likely to be engaged.
