Welcome to BUILD A Flourishing workPLACE!
Yay! So excited to see you here:) I am a Workplace Wellbeing Trainer and my purpose is to help build flourishing workplaces. I do this by helping organizations identify their strengths and areas of opportunity, and to take concrete steps toward a flourishing workplace.
Why Do Wellbeing and engagement at Work Matter?
You get it. Whether you do the important work in the People & Talent (HR) Department of a company, lead a team of talented people, or have had the courage to follow your dream and start up your own business, you want your employees to be happy and engaged. Not only because it is a pretty thought and nice thing to do for them but also because you know that happy and healthy employees are more productive and impact your bottom line.
Studies have shown that investing in employee wellbeing leads to multiplied savings in costs related to absenteeism, medical costs (see for example here), and employee turnover. Happy employees get sick less and they stay with you longer which helps you save in hiring and onboarding costs. Happy employees also achieve better results than unhappy employees. They serve your clients better, they are more productive, and they show more resilience in difficult times. No matter how talented people you hire, they are not going to reach their top results if they dread Mondays.
Getting it is the first step. But how do you take action and build a flourishing workplace where employees are happy and engaged?
Unfortunately, there is no magic pill. Workplace wellbeing and happiness are not about a monthly team lunch or Friday happy hours. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a cold drink after a week of hard work. But to create a truly happy workplace takes a lot of time and effort and requires a long-term commitment from everyone. Strengthening your team’s strengths and turning your areas of opportunity into new strengths are keys in building a flourishing workplace.
My Work Engagement Program is designed excatly for this purpose. Every organization is different and has it’s unique strengths and areas of opportunity. During the Program, we celebrate your workplace’s strengths, find ways to work on the areas of opportunity, and set up an action plan to build a flourishing workplace.
My name is Anni Eline, and my passion is to help organizations and individuals to build a flourishing workplace. I have a Master of Science (Economics and Business Administration) degree from the University of Oulu, Finland, and I have built my career in Germany, Texas, and Spain.
I first discovered my passion for creating happiness and wellbeing at workplaces (and for country music, but that’s a story for another time) while working for a small digital marketing agency in Houston, Texas. In a small company, I had the opportunity to learn a lot about different things, even outside of my own area which was Marketing. Among these things were participating in hiring and training new team members, designing and implementing new processes and workflows, and improving the company policies. I absolutely loved this part of my job! I loved seeing the positive impact that I could make in the company and in the team. I will be forever grateful to my managers in this company for helping me to find my passion and supporting me to follow it.
I decided to gear my career toward HR and career coaching because I believed that to be the way I could help more people to be happy at work. I have gathered a well-rounded experience in talent acquisition and people development. I have recruited a completely new team from scratch, onboarded and trained new employees, coached groups and individual job seekers from recent graduates to experienced professionals, and designed and implemented HR processes and company policies for different stages of the employee life-cycle. I have also seen different organizational cultures and learned something from each one of them.
I am a big believer in continuous learning, upskilling, and personal development. I have completed my professional toolbox with studies in Ergonomics and Occupational Wellbeing at the University of Eastern Finland. At the moment, I am enrolled in a Positive Psychology Practitioner program at Joylla.
In my personal life, I am also a wife, a nature lover, and a very enthusiastic knitter!
