Workplace Wellbeing

/Workplace Wellbeing

It’s tempting to think of corporate wellbeing programmes as a modern phenomena. The concept of workplace wellness, though, isn’t new at all. It dates back to the 17th century! The Johnson & Johnson’s Live for Life program, started in 1979, is generally regarded as the model for big corporate worksite wellness programs, with research throughout the 80s and 90s helping to educate managers to the benefits and positive impact of workplace wellbeing on employees.

Since 2000, workplace wellness programs have moved their focus to supporting the whole employee, providing interventions that support the physical and mental health and wellbeing of an increasingly pressurised workforce.

As a health enthusiast, a coach, and a corporate leader, I realised that I could join the dots and coach a whole organisation to better health at the start of 2014. That was the year that I became passionate about creating healthier workplaces, and that passion led to a journey of discovery, learning and delivery which resulted in a successful corporate wellbeing programme that positively impacted the lives of 1000s of people, and led to a healthier and more energetic organisation.

For corporate wellbeing strategies, programmes and interventions to be sustainable, they need to serve the needs of both employees and the business, ie: healthier employees who have more energy which they use to be more creative and more productive which benefits the business performance overall.
