Why is well-being important in the work place

Why is well-being important in the work place

When we talk of well-being in the work place, what do we actually mean? The Oxford English Dictionary defines “well-being” as ‘the state of being comfortable, healthy or happy”. Therefore, a huge part of wellbeing in the work place involves inducing happiness… However, shockingly only 13% of workers in the world feel “engaged” by their jobs, according to a Gallup report. Is this a bad thing that so many workers are disinterested and unhappy where they work? High happiness levels in the work place can benefit both the employee and employer as research indicates that happiness and workplace success are linked. Happy people tend to earn more money and display superior performance. When you are happy and interested in where you work, you become more motivated to invest time and effort, overcome obstacles and feel you have more control in achieving your career goals. This seems like common sense surely, but then why are so many workers still unhappy? Chess understands the importance of wellbeing and happiness in the work place. Their mission is to be “a great place to work, a great place to be a customer”. It’s their vision to create a dynamic, hard-working, energetic, success driven, fun and exciting place to work that attracts, retains and inspires people to give their best. With happy employees, Chess can create a happy company. Chess have created many schemes aimed at maintaining a positive and happy atmosphere in the office. Chess’s own CEO David Pollock runs “Happiness Training” sessions with his employees where he tells them how they can choose their attitude to life and that happiness brings success... read more

Our Charity Work

We are a company striving to be defined not just by our £50 million turnover but for playing our part in the wider community with the same passion, energy and attitude that drives us to succeed in the workplace.

Part of success is giving something back, and we’ve had a laugh doing so many crazy things in the name of charity. Cycling across Costa Rica, throwing ourselves out of planes, racing in rally cars to Budapest and so much more, so it’s nice to finally do something a little closer to home in Alderley Edge, where we’ve been based since 1993!
