As India gears up to be a 5 trillion-dollar economy, wellness, and well-being become key pillars in enabling that vision. With these factors playing a crucial role in shaping the workforce of the country, HDFC ERGO and Great Place To Work India came together to drive this initiative. Great Place To Work India conducted a study representing the voice of ~9 lakh employees across 18 industries, represented as the Workplace Wellness Index™ that provides a baseline to benchmark wellness for India Inc. Interestingly, a key finding which came out of the survey was that organizations that build a culture that foster holistic well-being experience showcase a 3.9x retention indicator as compared to those organizations where employees do not experience such an environment, proving the urgent need for coherent action by Industry leaders.

One of the key initiatives at the Wellness Summit was the launch of the Ideation Lab where participants of the wellness indicator and notable individuals in the wellness and wellbeing space connected to ideate and discuss the movement of ‘Making Health a Habit’.

Commenting on this initiative, Anuj Tyagi, Deputy MD, HDFC ERGO General Insurance said, “Well-being today is a priority for a lot of people. At HDFC ERGO, employee well-being continues to be of utmost priority for us like a lot of corporates. Our endeavour is to democratise this and make it accessible to everyone, beyond just corporate citizens. Great Place To Work India is already championing this through their corporate wellness index and for individuals through their well-being indicator. We have collaborated with them to extend the indicators to citizens at large through the program – Habit of Life. The big dream is to nudge people to make well-being a priority for citizens across the country. The seed for this has been sown today by creating a well-being charter with inputs from many corporate leaders, well-being practitioners and policymakers at The Wellness Confluence.”

Yeshasvini Ramaswamy, CEO, Great Place To Work® India, said, “We truly believe that Great Place To Work India with HDFC ERGO can promote a culture of consciousness around employee wellbeing. We are confident that our Workplace Wellness Index™ will help corporates take a comprehensive look across the range of indicators and identify areas where we still need to work upon. I am hopeful that a day will come when companies submit their employees’ wellbeing index along with their regular financial statements with absolute clarity on their role as responsible leaders with a high impact on the communities they serve.” 

The keynote address at the confluence was delivered by C. K. Mishra Secretary, IAS, Ministry of Environment, Forest & Climate Change Government of India on Prioritising Wellbeing – The Foundation for 2047. The event also identified and recognised the 40 Best Workplaces in the country where the organisations have well-designed practices to enable well-being.
