WDP Service with Brains: Fostering employee well-being made easy

In today’s fast-paced business environment, employee well-being is more crucial than ever, especially in the logistics and warehousing sectors. You don’t have to take our word for it. There’s plenty of research available to back that claim – we’ll get back to that later. 

WDP’s Well-being service was developed to boost employee happiness on the work floor through future-forward workspace design. It offers innovative solutions to enhance indoor and outdoor work environments. We aim to keep your people happy, boost employee retention, and decrease turnover and employee health issues while helping you attract new talent. Let’s find out how that works.

A transformation for good

Let’s say that you run an incredibly successful business in the logistics sector. However, you’re facing challenges with employee engagement and productivity. Your indoor and outdoor workspaces lack elements that contribute to a positive and motivating environment. How do you determine what to improve, and how do you do it? 

Our WDP Well-being service transforms your work environment into a space where employees feel valued and inspired. To achieve that goal, we launch a multi-faceted approach:

Indoor Well-being Transformation

WDP revamps indoor spaces with intelligent design features. How about creating a welcoming coffee corner or converting unused spaces into a gym? These changes aim to provide employees with areas to relax and rejuvenate during breaks.

Outdoor Well-being Enhancement

The service extends to outdoor spaces, where WDP incorporates greenery and leisure areas. These spaces allow employees to escape the daily grind and connect with nature, significantly improving mental health.

Integration of Wellness into Brand Identity

Throughout the transformation, WDP ensures that the new designs align with your unique brand identity, creating a cohesive, holistic environment that reflects your company’s values.

The Impact: Increased engagement & productivity

We don’t do that because we can but because it impacts your business’ operations meaningfully. 

  • Increased Employee Engagement: The new, inspiring workspaces increase employee engagement and satisfaction.
  • Enhanced Productivity: Happier and more motivated employees contribute to increased productivity and efficiency in operations.
  • Decreased turnover and absenteeism: Design elements that promote relaxation, ergonomics and stress reduction, like green areas and quiet spaces, are becoming increasingly important.
  • Positive Organizational Culture: The focus on well-being fosters a positive organisational culture, attracting and retaining top talent.

Well-being service: evidence-based and researched

Now, let’s back those claims up with some research. Here are some critical insights into why WDP’s Well-being service is the intelligent way forward:

  • Employees in well-designed spaces were 14% more productive, 6% more satisfied, and 35% more likely to stay with their company. (Steelcase study, 2018)
  • Access to daylight in the workplace led to 18% higher employee satisfaction and 14% greater well-being. (Leesman report, 2020)
  • Integrating biophilic design (incorporating natural elements) significantly impacts employee mental health, with benefits like reduced stress and improved cognitive function. (Harvard Business Review, 2022)

Let’s talk about your future workplace.

WDP’s Well-being service has a transformative impact on employee morale and productivity. By prioritising the design of workspaces that promote well-being, WDP enhances your employees’ day-to-day experience and contributes to a logistics company’s overall success and attractiveness. 

That way, you do everything possible to decrease turnover and absenteeism rates, saving you time, money and worries.
