Workplace Wellbeing: Lessons from the Legal Leaders Masterclass

Thomson Reuters recently collaborated with Positive Group to present a Legal Leaders Masterclass at the Hilton Sydney bringing together industry leaders, experts, and professionals to explore the crucial link between workplace wellbeing, sustainable productivity and financial results.

To support this special industry event, Dr. Ellie Smith, Dr. Eloise Crush and Dr Catherine Marshall, psychologists from Positive Group, have prepared “The Wellbeing Revolution”. This insightful report highlights the profound impact of employee wellbeing on sustainable performance in organisations.

The Power of Wellbeing

Did you know that recent research suggests a 1-point boost in how happy we feel translates to a 10-12% improvement in productivity? From enhancing concentration and memory to improving decision-making and higher cognitive functions, even taking a small step towards a proactive wellbeing approach can be both beneficial to your team. “The Wellbeing Revolution” highlights the key role of wellbeing as the ultimate performance indicator, demonstrating how organisations can proactively foster flourishing individuals and teams.

It’s critical to acknowledge that all stress isn’t inherently bad or detrimental.

The Stress Paradox

Global data indicates that 41% of senior leaders are stressed and 36% are exhausted. The workplace is challenging by nature and therefore it is not surprising that people report feeling stressed. Moderate or even relatively high levels of stress do offer benefits such as heightened awareness, new perspectives and reinforced priorities; however, to prevent burnout, it is crucial that employees learn how to recognise and regulate their stress levels, to avoid moving beyond their ‘tipping point’. “The Wellbeing Revolution” delves into the complexity of stress, shedding light on the importance of recognising key sources of stress and managing it effectively. By understanding the paradoxical nature of stress, organisations can harness its positive potential while mitigating its negative impact.

A Proactive Approach

Traditional approaches to workplace wellbeing have often been reactive, primarily focused on addressing wellbeing issues after they arise. However, “The Wellbeing Revolution” emphasises the need for a proactive approach that prioritises wellbeing from the outset and recognises the importance of building psychological skills to equip everyone to improve their wellbeing, and to thrive in the future world of work.. This transformation requires a mindset shift from the top down, strategies that leverage  data insights and innovative practices that build cultures where people can flourish.
