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.

onion: Consultancy Network

As partners in onion: Consultancy Network we are linked by a mutual desire for a society in which a balance exists between economic, ecological and social values. At the same time, this desire is the guiding principle for what we do and how we do it.

Through our consultancy work we help to ensure that companies and organisations are successful in the marketplace and that their staff produce effective work in a positive working environment that allows them to develop.

As a rule, our task is to help steer, monitor and assess our clients’ development processes. Our work is based on the awareness that the responsibility for a problem and how to solve it lies at all times with the client, that there is not necessarily only one correct way to meet the client’s requirements and that our intervention can produce desired and undesired effects, even in unexpected places. This systemic understanding influences how we work.

The basis for cooperation at onion: Consultancy Network is mutual trust, openness and concern, an interest in what the other partners are doing and in the possibility of joint professional development. We work together for our clients, we exchange know-how and experience and we learn with and from each other.

The partners in onion are all independent from a business point of view and each is responsible for his or her own products and for marketing them. We are linked by a network because in this way we can achieve added professional and personal value for our clients and for our professional activities.

onion: Consultancy Network was founded in 1991.
