Thus, companies must ensure to put people first and build a healthy workplace where people usually most of their time in the day. Organizations must also adopt solutions and blueprints that are given to develop healthy workplaces by groups and associations.

Employers must ensure that their employees are psychologically safe at work. There are no gossips or office politics that employees are subjected to. Employers must find out those bullies in the company who create a negative impact on the minds of the employees. There should be a human-based approach while solving the problems of employees in the organization. Employees should also be encouraged to share the issues that they face while working with other co-workers or team members. There should be no partiality or biased treatment. 

Employers should feel like promoting trust among the employees and thus, they should be motivated to take new initiatives and projects. There should be good mentors and leaders who should extend their helping hand in terms of professional and personal crises of the employees. Employees should also feel easy to share their vulnerabilities when dealing with tough clients and stakeholders.

Employers should not criticize employees if they lack in meeting their weekly or quarterly targets. Instead, more training and development programs should be introduced to employees on a timely basis so that they can work well and also focus on upgrading their careers within the organization.

There should be a sense of well-being and loyalty towards the company by the top leaders and managers in the organization. If the employees find the managers to be quitting the organization quite often, then there will be a bad reputation set among the other employees, thus impacting the work culture.
