Bridging the Gap: Insights and Actionable Strategies

A Global Perspective on Employee Wellbeing and Engagement

The 2024 State of the Global Workplace report by Gallup offers a comprehensive overview of employee experiences worldwide, capturing the voices of workers and uncovering critical trends in mental health, engagement, and organisational performance- so yes we’re interested! This extensive study reveals the pressing issues faced by today's workforce and provides a roadmap for leaders to navigate these challenges. However, translating these insights into actionable strategies remains a challenge for many organisations. At YourBigPic, we aim to bridge this gap by offering practical, people-first solutions to turn intent into reality.

Key Insights from the Report

Employee Mental Health: A Global Snapshot

One of the most striking findings in the report is the global decline in employee wellbeing, particularly among younger workers. The data shows that 20% of employees experience daily loneliness, with remote workers being the most affected. This statistic underscores the importance of fostering meaningful connections in the workplace, regardless of the work environment.

YourBigPic's Perspective: While the report emphasises the importance of social connections, it falls short of providing concrete steps to enhance these connections in remote or hybrid settings. YourBigPic advocates for structured virtual team-building activities and regular check-ins to cultivate a sense of belonging and community among remote employees.

The Role of Economics and Policy in Worker Wellbeing

Gallup's research highlights the positive impact of labour protections on employee wellbeing. Countries with robust labour laws see better overall life evaluations among workers. However, the mere presence of these laws is not enough; enforcement and organisational culture play crucial roles.

YourBigPic's Perspective: We agree with Gallup's findings whilst emphasising the need for organisations to go beyond compliance. By integrating fair labour practices with a culture of continuous improvement and employee empowerment, companies can create a more supportive and engaging work environment.

The Crucial Role of Managers

Managers are pivotal in determining employee engagement, with the report showing that engaged managers lead to more engaged teams. However, managers themselves often experience higher levels of stress and negative emotions compared to non-managers.

YourBigPic's Perspective: Gallup rightly points out the stress faced by managers but does not delve deeply into solutions. At YourBigPic, we recommend focusing on emotional intelligence, stress management, and effective communication. These programs can equip managers with the skills needed to support their teams while maintaining their own wellbeing.

Turning Insights into Action

While the 2024 State of the Global Workplace report provides invaluable insights, the challenge lies in implementation. YourBigPic's unique tools and frameworks, such as BIG PICTURE and the Six ITs, offer practical solutions to these challenges.

Practical Advice for Leaders

  1. Enhance Social Connections: Implement regular virtual and in-person team-building activities to foster a sense of community, especially among remote workers;
  2. Go Beyond Compliance: Integrate labour protections with a culture that prioritises continuous improvement and employee empowerment; and
  3. Invest in Manager Development: Provide training programs focusing on emotional intelligence, stress management, and communication to support managers and, in turn, their teams.


The 2024 State of the Global Workplace report sheds light on critical issues affecting today's workforce. By leveraging these insights and adopting practical strategies, leaders can create a more engaging and supportive work environment. At YourBigPic, we are committed to helping organisations turn these insights into reality, fostering a workplace culture that prioritises people and drives sustainable success.
