“Wellbeing helps businesses to be profitable, productive and sustainable.” – Paul Litchfield, What Works Wellbeing

 

Key characteristics

 

Fact-based approach:  We value data that generates true insight and creates clarity of goals, direction, and choices.  If required, we can provide personalised service and Organisational WOF (Wellness Objectivity Factor) to evaluate your company’s current position and to find out what’s actually impacting on the stress, resilience, communication and wellbeing of your staff.  This provides you with the key information as to where support is needed most and enables you to challenge and pressure test assumptions.

 

Strategic support:  We provide clear, concise advice and support that is practical and workable to help you build a programme with initiatives that will both enhance your staff’s performance and suit your company’s needs. This might include workshops, coaching, videos, learning opportunities and challenges that encompass all aspects of physical, mental and emotional health.

 

Co-pilot:  We believe the answers lie within you and your team. We work with you to facilitate the creation of solutions, helping you drive strategy to execution, co-piloting with you every step of the way.

 

Effective: The most effective wellbeing initiatives seek to inspire sustainable behaviourchange(which requires more than a fruit bowl or a gym discount – though that can be helpful, too!)  We help ensure they are personalised to your staff’s needs, easy to access and not limited to the workplace (i.e. useable in the 2/3 of life not spent at work).  We provide regular, friendly feedback following interventions thereby measuring improvements and highlighting any other opportunities for development.

 

Pragmatic:  We are senior coaches and strategists who bring significant real-world experience and who know the best strategy is the one that works.

 

Value for money:  We recognise cash flow can be a challenge for SMEs.  We put our money where our mouth is and are open to operating under a pay-for-performance agreement which means you have the option of giving us a percentage of the tangible results you achieve instead of paying for everything upfront.  This means neither of us profit unless we produce bottom-line results.

 

Bespoke:  The Healthy Workplace doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach; all our solutions are tailored to the individual needs of each company and its people.  We understand that every organisation is unique. We partner with you to build healthy, happy, thriving workplaces and people who love their work.
