Workwell4Life – Wellbeing4Life

Are you concerned that your staff don’t seem motivated and that morale is poor?

Does your workplace feel like a happy, energetic place to be, or is there an air of negativity and lethargy? What about staff sickness? Productivity? Stress levels? Retention? Are you concerned that you’re not getting the best from your team? That people’s work-life balance is suffering and they’re not bringing their best selves to the job?

 

Work-Well4Life is here to inject a bit of spark back into the workplace. To ensure that people are committed and motivated because they feel supported and energised by their organisation’s ethos and commitment to their wellbeing.

 

And we’re here to show you that looking after your employees is a sure-fire way to boost morale and productivity.

Work-related stress is on the rise. Stress is now the biggest single cause of sickness in the UK, affecting one in five of the working population, from the newest recruit in the post room to the Board of Directors. The average cost of sickness absence is £600 per employee per year (CIPD 2012), so staff wellbeing is something that businesses can’t afford to ignore. So really it’s a no-brainer: We’re seeing a rise in organisations being proactive and making wellbeing a strategic priority. There’s evidence to suggest that this is improving productivity and impacting the bottom line as well as boosting their reputation as great employers. The case for taking care of your staff is indisputable. You want to get the most from your team and, as a responsible employer, you care about their welfare.

 

But where do you start?

What can you do to boost your employee’s wellbeing and motivation, without wasting money on something that doesn’t work? How do you implement something meaningful with real impact? There’s no one size fits all solution as all businesses are different. But if you’re looking to make a big impact we suggest that eating well and getting active are a good start. When we exercise, the brain receives an increased amount of oxygen, resulting in improved memory and mental acuity (American Heart Association).  Endorphins are released which are the body’s natural feel-good drugs, resulting in a positive state of mind and a new sense of energy.

 

In short, somebody who eats healthily most of the time and exercises regularly is likely to be motivated, energised, positive, healthy, more resilient to the impact of stress and a great sleeper!

 

Is this the kind of person you’d like in your business?

Leadership Wellbeing Programme

As with any change, it starts at the top.  Our Leadership Wellbeing Programme is specifically designed to improve clarity, positivity, energy, efficiency and productivity for business owners and leaders.  This programme is for you if you recognise any of the following symptoms:

  • You’re too tired or stressed to think straight
  • You feel overwhelmed with too many things to do and struggle to remain focused on the task at hand
  • You often feel guilty that you’re not ‘present’ with family and loved ones because your head is too noisy and distracted with work
  • You can’t remember when you last got a good night’s sleep
  • You’re unable to concentrate and take focused actions
  • You lack confidence about the way you look
  • You feel sluggish and lack energy
  • You feel stuck in a rut and powerless to change
  • You want to make a change to re-boot your energy!

Our 12 week Leadership Wellbeing Programme consists of four areas, deliberately designed for maximum impact.

 

Weekly exercise either one-to-one or in a group of others on the programme

Nutrition plan created for maximum energy and health

Monthly wellbeing-themed networking with others on the programme. This includes guest speakers on wellbeing at work topics and will give you the chance to meet others with similar challenges and learn more about how to create a balanced life.

Business coaching. Alongside the physical training you will receive four 90 minute business coaching sessions, allowing you to harness your new-found energy and clarity for maximum benefit. The sessions will be tailored to your needs but will place emphasis on how to set and achieve your goals. Lethargy will be gone, and you’ll be left with a real sense of achievement!

Although you’ll see the best results if you opt for all four, you can choose to focus on just one or two of these areas should you prefer.

The programme works for leaders within the same organisation, but it can also be beneficial to work alongside leaders from other organisations. By bringing people together we can share challenges, support each other as we work to find solutions, learn from each other and make new business contacts. If you’re part of a small business, that’s no problem – we’ll form a group with other small business owners.

Employee Wellbeing

When your staff are well, your business is well too. Good employers invest in wellbeing as they recognise the value in positive, energised and motivated employees. Investing in staff wellbeing encourages loyalty and commitment.

 

Work-Well4Life offers a menu of creative options to support employee wellbeing, ranging from one-off events to aid relaxation, get people active and encourage healthy eating, to weekly exercise or Pilates classes.  You don’t need to provide any equipment – we’ll provide everything that’s needed.

 

The possibilities are endless!

 

Your staff will love that they can save on gym membership and save on time by getting their exercise done before they leave the office.  Plus, training alongside colleagues is great for team-building. It’s a win-win!  So how do we create a bespoke programme of wellbeing interventions that will work for your business?

It all starts with a FREE wellbeing review of your employees.  From this we can identify the key areas to be addressed and will work with you to build a programme that meets the needs of you, your business, your employees and your budget.

Team Building

Our fun team-building days are built around your specific needs, so we’ll discuss and agree the content with you before-hand.

All our team-building days are structured around three main building blocks:

 

  1. The chance to get active in the great outdoors! Exercise is a great leveller. We can provide a range of activities and will select something appropriate to the group’s fitness levels. This could include boxing, circuits, team games or a simple mindfulness walk. We’re all about accessibility and inclusion, so no-one will ever be made to feel bad because of their fitness level. The overall aim is to have fun and work together.

 

  1. An opportunity to develop knowledge that will have a lasting impact on their wellbeing long after the day is over. This could include topics such as nutrition for energy, mindfulness, work-life balance and how to create time for wellbeing. Participants will see the difference in the way they feel, in their approach and attitude both at work and at home.

 

  1. Time to address business-related topics if required. If there’s a specific challenge that you need some space away from the office to tackle, we can facilitate that for you too. It’s all about your business after all!
