make work better

80,000 hours. That’s how long most of us will spend at work in our lifetimes.

For something that takes up that much of our time, we think people deserve to get more out of it than a monthly pay cheque.

And they definitely deserve more than lying awake on Sunday nights, worrying about the week ahead.

They deserve to do their best work.

To know they’re in a place where they can grow. To get to the end of the day, and feel like they’ve achieved something.

So let’s do something about it.

You’re reading this because you think that, too. You want to see what you can do to put your people first. (And when you do that, your bottom line sees the benefit.)

We want to help you make work better.

Shall we get started?

We invest
in wellbeing

The unprecedented times we are living in have highlighted, more than ever before, the need for creating an environment that not only protects workers but promotes every facet of their wellbeing.

A healthy workforce is not only an ethical priority for businesses, but can also make a significant contribution through increased productivity and reduced costs associated with sickness absence.

We invest in wellbeing will help you to do just that, by identifying your strengths as well as areas for improvement. It will map where you are on your route to fostering a culture that prioritizes wellbeing.

We Invest in wellbeing is an especially powerful tool at a time when many workplaces have been disrupted and workforces have been required to rapidly adapt to new ways of working.

  • Social
  • Physical
  • Psychological

The conditions of lockdown have created a hole in the social fabric of work and many of us are missing the informal interaction that comes from being amongst colleagues. The we invest in wellbeing framework recognises this as a key contributing factor to workforce wellbeing. It is strengthened by a culture that champions reward and recognition, employee voice, inclusion, diversity, community activities and family-friendly policies.

We are undergoing a complete shift in the way we understand work as a result of the pandemic. We invest in wellbeing will help you understand how your people are being supported in the right ways across areas including physical activity, nutrition, musculoskeletal and environmental factors.

This is a critical area for any organisation, and the psychological wellbeing of its workforce is likely being tested to its limit at this time. Critical areas that We invest in wellbeing will look for include effective communication, employee voice and how success is celebrated and recognised.

Getting Investors in People accredited

Getting Investors in People accredited is a brilliant achievement, and a definite cause for celebration.

It’s not about how big or complex your organisation is.

It’s about which of these ideas and practices you’ve got in place – and how ingrained they are at every level of your company. So a big, multinational corporate could well get a standard – and a small, innovative start-up could get gold or platinum.
