Guaranteed ROI: How Investing in Your Employees' Growth Mindset is a Winning Strategy.

The relationship between companies and their employees has undergone a dramatic change in recent years. In the past, it seemed that companies didn't care at all about the personal lives of their employees outside the work environment. However, today's companies recognize the direct correlation between employee well-being and the quality of their work.

For a long time, I was part of corporate world where employees were expected to "leave their emotions at the door." The belief was that, regardless of what was happening in our personal lives, once inside the company, only the job should matter. Although I was offered various trainings, none were focused on my mental, emotional, or spiritual health. Such an expectation of emotional detachment is simply unrealistic.

It's not uncommon that, in the absence of tools or support, many employees feel unable to separate their personal concerns from their work responsibilities. This situation not only affects their productivity but also their overall well-being. Instead of focusing solely on their tasks, they find themselves distracted by personal problems, which negatively impacts their efficiency.

Culturally speaking, series like "Severance" have taken to the extreme the idea of separating work life from personal life with radical and fictional solutions. In contrast, "Billions" offers a more realistic and human perspective, emphasizing the importance of addressing the emotional and mental well-being of employees to enhance their work performance.

Mexico has taken significant steps in this direction. The implementation of the NOM035 law highlights the need to prevent psychosocial risks in the workplace. But beyond being mere regulation, this law underscores an essential fact: companies work with people, not machines. It's human beings with emotions, challenges, and potential that interact daily with customers and suppliers.

Henry Ford once said, "It's better to train your employees and have them leave than not to train them and have them stay." Investing in wellness and training goes beyond complying with a rule; it's essentially a sound business strategy. With proper training, employees are better prepared to face challenges, both work-related and personal. This not only strengthens their performance but also promotes a collaborative work environment and more effective leaders.

Companies that truly value and understand the humanity of their employees are better positioned for success. By investing in well-being, these companies not only cultivate a healthier and more productive work environment but also guarantee a more promising future.

The mental and emotional health of employees is not a luxury; it's a priority. Companies that genuinely invest in their staff's well-being are not only in line with laws but are also better prepared to enjoy the benefits of having a motivated, confident, proactive, and decisive team. Without a doubt, investing in employee well-being is investing in the future of the business.

Your experience, whether as an employee or employer, is crucial to continue this dialogue about well-being in the business world. Have you felt the pressure to "leave your emotions at the door"? Have you noticed the benefits of investing in your team's well-being or your own? I invite you to share your thoughts and experiences in the comments below.

Until next time 👋🏻
