Leaders in social care have an obligation to promote employee health and wellbeing. They should prioritise this by supporting their staff team to be healthier and happier at work which will then benefit the people they care for. Healthier, happier employees will be more productive and more likely to stay in the job. Leaders can facilitate this by creating a caring workplace culture, implementing policies that support employee health, and providing resources for employees to access. A leader should also model the highest standards of self-care to ensure that the importance of this permeates throughout the service.
