What best practices for quality of life at work have you observed in these past months, whether in very small or multinational companies?
In very small companies it can be hard to implement a coordinated quality of life at work policy. It is necessary for employees and employers to engage in direct dialogue, but this may also lead to faster results.
For companies of all sizes, a first step is to update their occupational risk assessment document(“DUERP“).
AXA has developed a service to help companies fill out this document easily and securely. We recognized a need for this support because according to our estimate, only about one in two companies have completed this mandatory step.
For example, how can employers protect the health of remote workers, which is just as important as that of on-site employees, while also being impacted by the physical distance and by blurred boundaries between work and personal lives?
We provide companies with tools to help them detect their specific issues, using tracked indicators and an analysis of absenteeism numbers from DSN (DSN) employment data reports, so that they can implement the most effective preventive measures.
The DSN is a valuable source of anonymized data, from which we can develop indicators enabling our customers to compare their situation to that of other companies and their industry sector. We know this is very useful to our customers, so they can see where they stand and choose their priorities.
We also support companies by providing hotline assistance, remote training and stress management programs (yoga, meditation, etc.), all with the guidance of occupational physicians.
But there is no “one size fits all” approach. Companies must adapt solutions to the specific needs of their employees.
