We work with policy makers, professional bodies and organisations to improve workplace wellbeing. People work with us because we have:
- Expertise in wellbeing at work: Our work has been funded by HSE, CIPD, Acas, and Business in the Community and International SOS Foundation as well as a range of corporate clients. We have spoken on the topic at professional events and contribute to various fora to promote health at work. We hold roles on advisory boards for professional bodies such as the Society of Occupational Medicine and mental health advocacy groups such as MAD World and This Can Happen.
- Proven track record of delivering evidence-based training on a national scale: We designed and delivered training across sectors as part of a national project funded by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to develop the management competencies for the prevention and reduction of work stress. This approach is supported by the CIPD and used across the public and private sector.
- Excellence in developing resource packs, toolkits and guidance individuals and line managers: We regularly work with policy and professional bodies to develop evidence-based, user-friendly guidance. We have recently completed a project for the Department of Work and Pensions to develop a return to work toolkit, due for release shortly. Examples of our guidance supported by Acas, Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and HSE as well as public and private sector clients such as International SOS.
- Strong track record of achieving behavioural change and improved organisational outcomes through stress risk assessment approaches. Working with a number of universities and NHS Trusts and clients such as RWE npower we have supported senior leaders, line managers, teams and individuals to identify sources of work stress and facilitate individual and team discussions to identify positive action using risk assessment approaches.
- Registered and chartered psychologists: Our work is bound by the ethical codes of the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council.
