Approximately 62% of employees find that companies’ concern for the well-being of employees is largely declarative, and not truly supported by organizational practices, according to a survey conducted by the Undelucram.ro platform in June of this year. Also, in terms of the balance between personal and professional life, approximately 45% of employees marked this indicator with a score of 6 out of 10.
2,122 employees, over the age of 18, with mostly university and postgraduate studies, responded to this survey.
“We aim to reach as many employees in Romania as possible with this message and offer them a concrete action plan, developed by specialists, to strengthen their physical, emotional, social and financial well-being. In the dynamic business environment in which we all work, especially under the pressure of last year, it is easy to lose sight of well-being, as we are so focused on survival. The fact that only 4% of employees in Romania are satisfied with the balance between their personal and professional life is a clear indicator of this. It is why this week we have launched the Wellness Marathon campaign, a project through which, together with our partners, Thrive Global Romania, we seek to bring to the forefront, for both employees and organizations, the fact that well-being, a healthy balance between the professional and personal life should be the number one priority for each of us “, Costin Tudor, founder and CEO of Undelucram.ro.
