Building your wellbeing culture together

Just like people, businesses need healthy routines too – that’s why we’ve developed the Wellbeing Cycle.

One size, does not fit all

Professional and Financial Services are experiencing a rapid pace of change in an operating and regulatory environment that’s never been more demanding. With this comes a need to continually support employees, empower line managers, and tackle both absence and presenteeism.

The number of stress related absences is higher now than in the immediate aftermath ofthe 2008 financial crisis1

Work related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 44% of work-related ill health and 57% of working days lost2

Financial services experience a 9% increase in work related mental health referrals coupled with a 13% reduction in those absent at time of referral3

The cost of absence to the UK economy will increase to £21bn in 2020.3

Too often, occupational health and wellbeing initiatives are implemented and not well evaluated. Effective health and wellbeing programmes are built around insight, they sustain engagement, tackle absence and presenteeism and crucially intervene and support employees and managers when they’re most at need.

Let’s work together to combine our health and wellbeing expertise with your
intimate knowledge of your business to unlock the power of everyone bringing
their best self to work:

  • Ensure the health and wellbeing of your workforce by proactively
    preventing ill health.
  • Keep your business compliant with clear, timely, impartial
    management advice.
  • Reduce the cost of absence by supporting employees back to work
    through occupational health case management that’s led by clinicians
    not process.
  • Develop programmes that equip line managers with the confidence
    and ability to intervene and act early.
