The Importance of Focusing on
Multiple Dimensions of Well-Being in Times of Uncertainty

WebMD Health Services approaches employee well-being holistically, bringing together the resources needed to support not just physical health, but emotional health and lifestyle factors, too. Learn how our focus on the five dimensions of well-being helps us provide individuals with the right support at the right moment, even in the most challenging of times.

1. Every day is different.

Humans are complex, and our needs vary from one day to the next. One day we might need a little extra encouragement to work out. The next day we’re dealing with a chronic condition that has flared up.

And, as today’s current health crisis illustrates, some days require additional emotional support for managing stress and increasing resilience.

WebMD ONE integrates information participants supply about themselves with data from third-party sources, so responding to the unique needs of each person on any given day is possible.

2. With well-being, it’s all connected.

Promoting good health goes beyond just the physical aspects. A well-being solution that addresses all aspects of employee health is critical, especially now.

For example, we’ve long known that reducing modifiable health risks like smoking, poor diet, and lack of exercise can have positive effects on our mental well-being.

Now, as social connections become limited, we are going to have to rely on other ways to care for our mental health. Increasing resiliency through a well-being program can help.

Finally, even before the health crisis, we knew that financial stress was taking a toll on physical health. A Fidelity study found that financially stressed employees are two times less likely to get enough sleep, exercise regularly, get a flu shot, go to the doctor/dentist, eat healthy, maintain a healthy weight, and avoid tobacco use. 1 With untold layoffs and business closings on the horizon, it’s an understatement to say that financial stress will skyrocket.

3. A holistic approach increases employee loyalty.

Gone are the days when work and life was easily compartmentalized—especially now with so many of us working from home.

Fortunately, employers have begun to realize that helping employees navigate work and life can pay dividends in terms of higher employee engagement and productivity.

In the current moment, an employer who actively offers ways to help employees manage their emotions and maintain a healthy lifestyle will build employee goodwill and engagement for the long-term.

Well-being happens every day, all day long. We are here to support your well-being needs with a holistic solution that is personalized and relevant to each individual. We can help your organization achieve its well-being goals – now and in better times ahead.
