Why wellbeing?

Research indicates that healthier staff are happier staff, and that happier staff are more productive, efficient, resilient and engaged. All of this leads to better profits, whether through increased efficiency of outputs; better client relationships (ergo repeat business); and reduced costs of staff turnover and absence.

Every year in the UK, 200 million days are lost through sickness absence at an estimated cost of £17 billion to the economy.(1) Stress has become the primary reason for absence, and presenteeism is on the rise. The cost of presenteeism is more expensive than absenteeism(2), due to sub-performance, mistakes and accidents, having a negative effect on both the individual and the organisation.

Our programme addresses mind and body, covering the four key areas of employee wellbeing through a combination of education and ongoing support. It allows participants to identify specific aspects of their life they feel should be changed to improve their wellbeing, and helps them commit to changes that can be included easily into their existing home and work routines to maximise the likelihood of them keeping up healthier lifestyles.
