employee wellbeing for a better business

Your employees are your business. Supporting their wellbeing promotes good citizenship behaviours, reduces stress and burnout, improves work-life balance and builds resilience. A focus on employee wellbeing improves retention and is a draw for potential new talent, forming an essential part of your Employer Value Proposition.

a focus on employee wellbeing keeps your business healthy too

A great employee wellbeing programme is fun and engaging as well as informative. It helps employees make small changes that, over time, build up to make a real difference, to them and to your bottom line, as productivity and engagement increase. Happy, looked-after employees lead to happy, looked-after clients and customers - better for everyone.

done right, employee wellbeing is a magnet for talent too

Finding, and keeping, great talent can be a real challenge. A substantive and fully embedded employee wellbeing programme can be a key element of your Employer Value Proposition, differentiating you from your competition for talent, and providing a real draw for great people to want to work for you.

getting the right results on employee wellbeing

success depends on behaviour change

Focus on small, consistent changes in behaviour that are relevant and appropriate for your workforce.

build around a simple framework

Create cut-through by using clear consistent messaging to set out expectations, as well as the impact and benefits of the programme.

embed wellbeing in all aspects of work

Make employee wellbeing mainstream rather than a 'nice-to-have' add-on that feels like lip-service. Demonstrate the organisation genuinely has employee best interests at heart.

employee wellbeing - resilience building workshops

resilience building workshops

If you've noticed a spike in employee stress levels, perhaps showing up as drops in performance, increased absenteeism or employee attrition, there are some simple steps you can take to get things back on track.

Your employee wellbeing programme will ideally focus on upskilling your people in practical tools to build resilience, resourcing them to thrive through both the ups and the downs.

Topics that can be covered in workshops or lunch and learn sessions include:

  • Staying creative under stress, tools to prevent burnout

  • Resilience through change

  • The art of better sleep

  • Growing your mental and behavioural flexibility

  • Making work-life balance work for you

stress management, burnout prevention and support

burnout prevention and support

If you have specific employees at risk of burnout, or already taking time off work due to stress, there are actions you can take to provide effective support. A thoughtful employee wellbeing programme can help them build their resilience, manage pressure and anxiety better, so they can chart a path back to full performance.

  • Resilience coaching to build the self-awareness, skills and emotional intelligence to cope even when things are tough

  • One-to-one breathwork sessions providing a safe space to explore difficult emotions and find a better sense of balance and calm

  • Support following bereavement or other losses

  • Practical techniques to manage anxious thoughts and stress, resourcing to build their own resilience over time

better work-life balance

competencies for better work-life balance

The world is changing, and with it, many people are seeking better work-life balance.

Whether you employ young people wanting to make an impact at work but also to have time for their personal lives; employees caught in the 'sandwich generation' caring for both children and older relatives; or those emerging from lockdown realising their continuing deep commitment to work but also having cherished home-working and spending more time with loved ones.

A great employee wellbeing programme also focuses on work-life balance. My work-life balance competency framework defines the key skills needed to create an effective work-life balance. Delivered in a fun and interactive programme, I can train employees in each of these skills, empowering them to effectively manage their work-life balance in a way that works for them and for you.
