Navigating workload and wellbeing in Aotearoa New Zealand
Umbrella Wellbeing Report | May 2023
Numbers and data can help us tell a story. In this report we use Umbrella Wellbeing Assessment data to tell a story about how our employees perceive their workload and the impact overwork, and underwork, can have on individual and workplace wellbeing. We also use the numbers to explain how decision-makers and business leaders can manage workload to create mentally healthy and high-performing workplaces.
This report is a snapshot of how working Kiwis perceive their workload, with insights for organisations to create healthy workplaces that promote wellbeing.
