Landmark research into workplace wellbeing

From this research we have devised six ‘lenses’ that determine the strategic imperative driving employer’s attention to health and wellbeing today:

  • Wellbeing culture
  • Sustaining high performers 
  • War for talent 
  • Productivity and absence control  
  • Compliance and risk management 
  • Cost of Ill-health provision

What does this research show?

The research highlights that by reflecting your strategy through these six lenses an effective wellbeing programme is designed. This successful programme will provide the optimal mix of products to remove barriers to access and ensure services are used effectively.

In a survey with more than 1000+ employees, 60% of finance directors and 72% of HR directors believe workplace health issues threaten UK competitiveness.
