Overwhelming and proven medical evidence is slowly but surely increasing awareness of this once taboo subject which is still admittedly hard to talk openly about.
However, forward thinking businesses are beginning to understand that mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety are a significant part of the health issues faced by employees.
We place the mind at the center of our wellbeing program because that is where many issues are manifested . We take a neuroscientific approach that enables us to objectively track and measure emotional and mental wellbeing.
From there we can create a wellbeing program that will help improve both physical and, just as importantly, mental and emotional health.
Virtually 100% of the $43 billion global spend in the workplace wellbeing sector is targeted only at physical wellbeing.
The aim is to help people improve their health by increasing fitness levels, improving diet and losing weight etc.
Worthy objectives for sure but the evidence shows us that most simply do not work.
1. Because most wellbeing schemes appeal to employees who already live a healthy lifestyle and fundamentally fail to engage the people who don’t and who would actually benefit the most. Who, coincidentally, are the employees that cost businesses the most.
2. There is an over reliance on technology as the main delivery method, through apps which are easy to abuse (or ignore) and as a result, cannot really deliver sustainable behavioral change.
3. And finally, they fail to identify the root cause of the lack of engagement, which can often be a mental health related issue such as depression or anxiety. And unless this is understood then no progress can be made.
Our workplace wellbeing evaluation and development programs are delivered on a one-to-one or one-to-group basis by our team of skilled and specialized coaches.
We use technology to make communication more efficient where it is most impactful. But the key to our approach is human first and technology second, which results in far higher engagement than conventional wellbeing programs.
This is the neuroscience bit that helps us see in more detail the challenges that individuals are facing.
Evaluation starts with a simple chat and focused Q & A session followed by our unique neuroscientific mental health assessment.
Once we understand the challenges that each individual is facing we are better equipped to deliver a wellbeing program that:
A) Is tailored to each individual
B) That will help them develop
C) Is based on personal one-to-one relationships
D) They will want to engage with
Our unique approach focuses on 5 specific areas that we call the Beingwell365 Life Keys. Combined, they are the secret to unlocking successful workplace wellbeing.
The simple answer is everyone.
Taking a neuroscientific approach from the start and properly identifying the challenges of each member means that there is a much higher engagement rate at every level, regardless of age, gender, seniority or skill level.
This also means that the ROI on a Beingwell365 program is significantly higher.
In addition, each individual’s development progress is also measurable giving a unique insight into the overall health of your organization.
Poor mental health, just like poor physical health is a fact and it affects us all. It is no longer acceptable to ignore the mental health of our employees.
That’s why we place this subject at the center of our wellbeing program, why we champion the benefits of a neuroscientific approach and why we employ top quality specialist coaches.
It is time to start talking about the elephant in the room.
The sharp end of any business or organization is often where there is the most stress, a major contributing factor in depression and anxiety.
We work with senior executives to; raise awareness of mental health at work, to overcome stress related issues like depression, to help build mental resilience and toughness to better cope with stress, and to see the benefit of putting the mind at the center of workplace wellbeing.
Experience has taught us that leading from the front significantly helps to create positive and lasting behavior change when implementing a wellbeing program.
