People who are self-employed and run their own businesses are used to being self-reliant. But being self-reliant doesn’t have to mean going it alone – often the simplest and first step to better wellbeing can be to talk about it, whether it's about how you feel or how somebody you employ feels. Talking about these issues in the workplace can really improve performance and productivity, and even though it costs time, it should help you in the long-run.
Opening up and talking can be really beneficial for you and your employees. Try to speak about what you are all doing at work and what pressures you are both under. It’s important for people to feel comfortable discussing their mental health, and that everyone in your organisation feels able to talk about stress that they experience, or problems that they feel are affecting them day-to-day.
It is important you and your staff are able to balance work and home life, manage work pressures and feel encouraged and motivated at work. As self-employed people and small business owners, you know the value of hard work – this section is intended to provide ideas about how you can make sure you and your employees can work in a way that keeps you healthy.
Our jobs have a big impact on our health and wellbeing. The Labour Force Survey in 2007/08 found that an estimated 442,000 individuals in Britain believed that they were experiencing workrelated stress at a level that was making them ill3. Well-designed jobs with good line management, communication and flexibility can all help reduce stress. It’s worth thinking about changes you can
The buildings we work in can make a huge difference – both positive and negative – to how we feel day-to-day. 85 per cent of people in England agree that the quality of the built environment influences the way they feel. Improving the environment you work in can be one of the easiest things to do – but it could also make the biggest difference.
The healthier you are, the easier you might find it to keep working when you need to.
Taking care of your body can support both your physical and mental health. Exercise can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50 per cent.
Keeping yourself and your staff healthy is incredibly important – it’s equally important to access the help you or your staff need if one of you develops a disability or health condition while in work. If somebody falls out of work, not only can it lead to the loss of a valued member of staff for a business, but it can lead to worse health outcomes for them and contribute to negative economy-wide outcomes.
Self-employed and small businesses are relatively successful in comparison to the rest of the private sector in employing people with disabilities – it is great for you, your business and indeed your staff, if you can think of extra steps you can take to build an inclusive, supportive workplace.
