a. Well-being at work and quality of life and working conditions (QWL)
Well-being at work and QWL have become crucial issues in the professional world. Creating sustainable professional fulfilment of employees is essential for the success of a company. Today, we will explore together how to guide your employees to discover their natural abilities and the ways in which they thrive. By developing their self-confidence and allowing them to grow professionally, you will help create a positive and stimulating work environment.
Well-being at work is inextricably linked to the overall performance of the company. Fulfilled employees are more committed, creative and productive. QWL, which encompasses the material, social and psychological aspects of work, has a direct impact on employee satisfaction and motivation. By focusing on well-being at work, you invest in the human capital of your company and promote talent retention.
b. Human capital and corporate social performance
Each individual is unique, with his or her own talents, preferences and ways of functioning. By helping your employees to become aware of their natural abilities, you enable them to better understand their potential and make the most of it. Furthermore, by helping them discover what makes them tick, you encourage them to develop their self-confidence and become fully engaged in their work.
In this article, we will look at how to identify the natural abilities of employees, understand how they function and create the right environment for sustainable professional fulfilment. We will also discuss the role of training and coaching in this process.
So, are you ready to transform your company into a place where talent flourishes and self-confidence reigns? Follow us on this journey!
1. Identifying natural qualities to create sustainable professional fulfilment
Well-being at work and QWL depend on valuing the talents and skills of each individual. This is why it is essential to focus on identifying the natural aptitudes of your employees. By helping them to become aware of their strengths, you contribute to their self-confidence and promote their professional fulfilment.
1.1. Why is it important to know your natural abilities?
Natural abilities are those innate skills that allow us to excel at certain tasks without much effort. By knowing their natural abilities, employees can better understand their strengths, what motivates them and how they can contribute to the company’s success. In addition, it allows them to focus on their areas of expertise and develop complementary skills to optimise their performance.
1.2 Methods and tools for identifying the natural abilities of employees
There are a number of methods for highlighting the natural abilities of your employees. Here are some approaches to discovering them and making the most of them:
1.2.1. Psychometric tests
Psychometric tests are assessment tools that measure cognitive abilities, personality traits and work preferences. They can help to identify employees’ natural skills and areas of excellence, as well as to better understand their motivations and values.
In the Newday Care app, for example, which you can download for free from the App Store or Google Play, there are a number of questionnaires waiting for you to discover yourself. These include: Behaviour, Driving Forces, Career Motivation and Career Interests. You will be offered 2 questionnaires.
1.2.2. Individual interviews and training
Individual interviews and training are a good opportunity to explore the natural abilities of your employees. By asking the right questions and listening carefully, you can guide them in becoming aware of their talents and encourage them to make the most of them.
1.2.3. Observations and feedback in the work situation
By observing your colleagues and/or employees in their daily work, you can detect their natural qualities (natural abilities) and enhance them. Constructive feedback is also an effective way to help them become aware of their strengths and to encourage them to develop them.
In summary, identifying natural qualities is crucial for well-being at work and QWL. By implementing the right methods, you can help build your employees’ self-confidence and create an environment that is conducive to their professional fulfilment.
2. Functioning patterns: discovering what makes your colleagues and staff tick
Having explored the natural qualities (skills), it is time to look at the ways in which your staff are motivated. By understanding what motivates and excites them, you can create a stimulating work environment that is adapted to their needs, thus promoting well-being at work and QWL.
2.1. Understand individual patterns of functioning
Each person functions differently according to their preferences, motivations and values. These patterns determine how people interact, communicate and work together. By identifying them, you can better understand the individual needs of your employees and support them in their professional development, thus strengthening their self-confidence.
2.2. Developing self-confidence and creating sustainable professional development
By helping your employees to understand and accept the way they work, you offer them the opportunity to develop their self-confidence. They will then be better able to develop professionally and contribute fully to the success of the company.
2.3 Techniques for identifying patterns
Here are some techniques to highlight the ways in which your employees function:
2.3.1 Motivation and value analysis
Motivations and values are at the heart of the way people function. By identifying them, you can better understand what makes your employees tick. You can use questionnaires, individual interviews or workshops to explore these aspects.
2.3.2 Assessing communication and leadership styles
Communication and leadership styles are also key elements in understanding patterns of functioning. By assessing these aspects, you can adapt your management and collaboration methods to foster a climate of trust and well-being at work.
2.3.3. Workshops and group exercises
Organising workshops and group exercises can help you to better understand the way your employees work. By observing them interacting and solving problems together, you can identify their strengths and preferences, and thus help them to develop their self-confidence.
Thus, understanding and valuing individual ways of working is essential to fostering well-being at work and QWL. By implementing the right techniques, you will contribute to the professional development of your employees and their self-confidence.
3. Create an environment for exploring and identifying skills and patterns of functioning
Now that we have discussed the importance of natural abilities and ways of functioning, it is time to think about how to create a work environment that is conducive to their exploration and identification. By promoting well-being at work and QWL, you will enable your employees to develop their self-confidence and grow professionally. This is what creating sustainable professional fulfilment is all about.
3.1 The importance of caring and inspiring management
Supportive and inspiring management is essential to encourage your people to explore their abilities and ways of working. By adopting an approach based on listening, encouraging and valuing skills, you will create a climate that fosters trust and motivation. The Leadership Questionnaire in the Newday Care application is a good tool for dialogue between employee and manager.
3.2 Creating a climate of trust and support
A climate of trust and support is essential for your employees to feel comfortable expressing their needs, concerns and ideas. By creating an open dialogue and valuing constructive feedback, you will foster an environment where everyone can explore and develop their skills and ways of working.
3.3. Promote communication and collaboration
Communication and collaboration are key elements in creating an environment that is conducive to exploring and identifying skills and ways of working. Creating spaces for exchange and opportunities to work together encourages employees to share their experiences, ideas and skills, thus contributing to their professional development and self-confidence.
Thus, creating an environment that is conducive to exploring and identifying skills and ways of working is essential for well-being at work and QWL. By adopting a caring and inspiring management style, by creating a climate of trust and support, and by promoting communication and collaboration, you will enable your employees to develop their self-confidence and to achieve their full potential. This is what creating sustainable professional fulfilment is all about.
4. The role of training and coaching in sustainable professional fulfilment

They are essential in helping employees to explore and identify their natural abilities and to develop their self-confidence.
