Why well-being is important, your first well-being cycle goals
Hi! My name is Katya and I’m part of the team at Quan that will help guide you through your well-being journey.
Quan’s mission is to teach you how to place well-being at the heart of success - which means learning how to break the cycle of employee burnout as a necessary price of growth.
By using Quan, you, your team and your company will be empowered with the insights and tools you need to do that.
Let’s take a moment and break down what we mean.
Balanced well-being is the foundation that allows you to function sustainably, without slipping into burnout. Succeeding at the expense of your own or your team’s well-being is not sustainable long term and is one of the biggest factors that make people leave their jobs.
We’ve all heard that the most common reason people leave a job is a bad manager, but at Quan we wanted to unearth the more human level of what is meant by a “bad manager”, and more importantly how we can start changing that narrative and stop pointing fingers.
The Pandemic has given us the opportunity to reconsider a lot of the practices that we considered the status quo at work. As many of us moved into work-from-home setups, 2 things happened:
Firstly, we lost those casual to catch up with people around the coffee machine or in the lunchroom, meaning we lost so many opportunities to pick up on non-verbal queues on how others are doing,
And secondly, the line between personal and work life blurred as kitchens, bedrooms and living rooms became our make-shift offices, work moved into our heads, and our personal lives interjected themselves into our work - yes, we all heard colleagues when they forgot to mute themselves during that meeting.
Now more than ever we’re struggling to find our way around in a new reality of now-you-do-now-you-don’t go to the office with each new wave of public health guidelines and restrictions. Companies are trying to figure out what hybrid work even means, and we’re all trying to keep a little bit of balance and sanity through all the constant change - and on some level it’s burning us all out.
All this systemic burnout is driving turnover, and it’s costing you BIG - for your company, your team, your customers and most importantly, your health.
Quan gives you a way to get in front of the vicious cycle of burnout and employee churn.
We do that by helping you navigate 3 levels of employee well-being: individual, team and organization.
Quan will guide you through a journey that gives you time and space for meaningful team check-ins, and the tools to do it in the “golden middle” - neither avoiding the topic of well-being completely, nor feeling pressured to overshare.
We’ll help you put everything in its place - Quan gives you the tools you need to understand which dimensions of well-being you’re struggling with the most, and what you can do to improve them.
Quan structures your team’s well-being journey in well-being cycles. Each cycle takes about 3 months for a team to complete. For now, we won’t go into a lot of detail on the process. I just want you to have an overview of what to expect, and to lay-out Quan’s goals for your first well-being cycle.
That you are more confident understanding your well-being data.
That you are more comfortable having conversations about well-being,
And that you feel empowered to take concrete action towards improving well-being and ways of working.
It’s time to stop trying to cure a lack of balance at work with fruit bowls, or high levels of uncertainty with yoga classes.
We invite you to visit support.quanwellbeing.com, where you can also find answers to a lot of the questions you might still have.
We’re excited that you and your team are taking this step with Quan towards more balanced, engaging and meaningful ways of working, by placing well-being at the heart of success!
