… establishing a wellbeing program?

  • Where do you start?
  • When should you schedule activities and what should they be?
  • What should your program include?
  • How can you make it cost effective?
  • How will you get staff involved?
  • How do you get, and keep, the support of upper management?
  • How, and who, will manage it?
  • How do you manage this program along with everything else you have to do?

We hear these questions all the time.  We’ve listened and, working with clients, have developed a systematic approach that takes the guess work out,  delivers a high-value, highly visible program that will meet your objectives while being cost-effective. Guaranteed!  Meet with us, for no obligation, while we take you through our step-by-step, headache-free, process.

… HR manager?

As the HR manager or 2IC you already have a full plate – performance issues,  recruitment, retention, leadership development, professional training, OH&S,  workforce planning and strategic issues – all land at your door.  Wellbeing is one of many tasks you juggle with professionalism and grace.  Fortunately creating a wellbeing program is not only good corporate citizenship but can help with many of these issues – if it’s developed right.

How do you:

  • integrate it with your other initiatives?
  • justify the expense to your leadership team?
  • develop and manage a wellbeing program alongside your existing duties?
  • measure the improvements and ensure continued engagement?
  • get the most bang for your buck (we like to say get the most wellbeing for your sweat)?
  • sort the wheat from the chaff (there are a lot of providers out there)

We can help you:

  • make the case for a budget to your leadership team
  • develop a program that has great staff buy-in
  • demonstrate return – not just in terms of wellbeing but for productivity, less sick leave and higher engagement
  • get on with the bigger picture issues you need to handle by taking care of the fiddly details (all important for success but sooo time-consuming).

It costs nothing to pick up that phone or email us – we’ll share what we know and help you make an informed decision.  We can save you time, money and effort.

… a business owner or CEO?

OR

… an organisation without a Wellbeing program?

Congratulations for considering a wellbeing program.  The research shows that wellbeing programs MORE than pay for themselves.  Consider the problems of an unwell workplace:

  • 60% of absenteeism is attributable to stress. 3
  • 35% of cardiovascular disease in men and one third of depression in women can be attributed to job stress. 5
  • Direct cost of workplace injury and disease is over $7 billion/year.  Indirect costs are much higher5
  • People in poor health perform worse at work. 9
  • One in five employees are unhappy at work,  under engaged and focused on seeking more pay. 4
  • 1 in 10 workers are affected on the job by anxiety, depression and stress.
  • 40% of job turnover is due to stress and it costs 50-150% of an employee’s salary to replace them

BUT the benefits of wellbeing programs are many:

  • Wellbeing programs increase staff engagement and organisations with high staff engagement enjoy a 20% return with -10% for low staff engagement [4].
  • Healthy work programs generate medical savings of about $3.27 and absenteeism-related savings of about $2.73 for every dollar invested. 7 That is a 3:1 return.
  • Another estimate is that wellbeing programs return up 15 times what you invest in them.
  • Healthy employees are three times more productive than unhealthy employees. 8
  • Happy workers place less emphasis on pay4 and spend TWICE as much time doing work-related activities than unhappy employees.

There’s no doubt about the why – so let us help you with the how.  At workplace wellbeing we go further, improving not just health of your staff but the health of your organisation.  All our programs are designed with the twin aims of wellbeing and productivity – helping you achieve your KPIs and improve your balance-sheet.  That’s why we call it a Welltivity™ – wellbeing programs that boost productivity.
