Holistic HR resides entirely in the mindset of the employee. Companies viewing employees strictly as people to accomplish tasks in the workplace with little to no personal value is the way of the past. More and more companies are emphasizing the importance of a healthy and robust work culture.
Holistic HR practices viewing employees as people with real emotions, desires, and values rather than accomplishing one job within a specific set of parameters, making work a robotic lifestyle. This HR style means the team understands how their employees think and feel and push them toward success in their work-life while maintaining the integrity of their values.
Often, HR is the department with the least amount of time and resources devoted to it. Holistic HR aims to change and evolve organizations to a point where employees feel valued in the workplace. Companies who utilize this practice see a more fulfilled, energetic, and productive worker leading to drastic improvements for profits and ROI. This increase in added value is due to employees being able to have a better work-life balance that allows for a clearer headspace and overall satisfaction. These elements drive them to want to work harder and more efficiently.
We can see the tangible benefits of implementing holistic HR best practices in Salesforce is the second-best place to work in the US with 26 billion dollars in revenue and rose 53 places, coming in at 137 on the Fortune 500 list. This impressive growth is not shocking considering one of their central operating values is valuing their employees and utilizing Holistic HR.
Similarly, a survey by UnitedHealthcare found that implementing Holistic HR produces significant benefits for companies and employees. Specifically, having more automated systems (reducing stress), offering stipends for massages, marathon entrance fees, and nap rooms have led to 62% of people increasing their productivity levels and 56% recording fewer sick days. A luxury hotel that implemented these practices reported a retention rate of 82%, which increased the value of each employee on average by $5,864.
