New Zealand began 2023 with severe inflation, costs outpacing rising incomes, housing shortages, and multiple severe weather events. These sound like problems outside of the workplace that might not have much to do with your employees – but actually, you can offer small-but-significant responses to outside stressors which firstly keep your staff grounded, and secondly keep them onboard.

According to the most recent BusinessNZ Workplace Wellness Report, 66 per cent of businesses reported an increase in stress levels, with 91 per cent citing COVID-19 as a partial reason for this – while there is a multitude of factors that can contribute to a decline in employee satisfaction, happiness, and overall productivity.
