About Us

Enabling Thriving Cultures

Our Approach

When you consider building a wellbeing strategy, it needs to be holistic, proactive and integrated into the way you do business.

Managing wellbeing proactively means:

  • Ensuring your board is on board with your strategy and gets to contribute to it
  • Finding out what your employees think and seeking solutions to stressors
    • Training
      • Managers
      • Peer to peer (e.g. MHFA)
      • Individual resilience and wellbeing
      • Providing ongoing resources

We also have a thriving Facebook group community (as well as our normal Facebook page) which has lively discussions about what healthy work actually is for each of us! 

We can help with both assessment and training. When it comes to assessment, we will start with the data points you already have available and work with you to see where additional information would support you. When it comes to training, we help you build your training needs analysis.

There is always a requirement to make sure your Board is on Board and we can support with this through a facilitated session, working with you to make sure that your strategy is bought into.
