Healthy Organisations

What can organisations do to help employees work healthily and effectively? It is about more than managing illness and absenteeism. Healthy organisations, for example, actively address the tendency to make working hours, locations, and - forms more flexible; they meet the demands to make organisations (even) more efficient with care and look for viable solutions in dealing with diverse, sometimes contradictory expectations of supervisors and employees. For this, they have to take three perspectives into account:

  • Organisational perspektive
    Providing flexibility and space that make the demands manageable
    Prudent and realistic resource planning
    Designing goals that allow sufficient flexibility and are well aligned with everyday tasks
    Creating working conditions that meet the needs of the organisation and those of the employees
    Creating appropriate space for rest and recreation

  • Social perspective
    Establish space and processes for dialogue and reflection, to build and maintain sustainable working relationships
    Shape cooperation to create a climate of psychological safety that allows for questions, ideas and doubts
    Encourage social support in the organisation

  • Individual perspective
    Supporting all hierarchical levels in paying attention to their own health
    Maintaining and strengthening the individual resources of employees

These perspectives are connected through daily leadership and cooperation practice. If they receive sufficient attention there, essential foundations have been laid for the development of a healthy organisation.

«My gaze is open like a sunflower...
I have the habit of wandering along the streets,
looking to the right and to the left,
And sometimes back...» (Alberto Caeiro)

Curiosity guides me in my work with individuals, teams, and organisations. In every mandate there are stories, convictions, but also uncertainties. These need to be explored and considered in development processes. In the process, diverse patterns and different assessments often emerge: should we do this or that, continue as before or head for new shores, do we go step by step or take the big leap? Individual wishes and needs, dynamics in teams as well as environments, and goals of the organisation must be aligned. This rarely works without contradictions, which is completely normal. I see it as an important aspect of my consulting work to highlight the associated differences and to make them useful for clients. I like to work in a concept-oriented way, but without prescriptions and always remaining focused on the specific concerns of the clients.
