Wellbeing at Work
Wellbeing is at the core of what it takes to flourish, both as individuals and businesses. You don’t get performance and productivity without workplace wellbeing. There is a proven link between wellbeing and success. This is the Happiness Advantage. When employees are functioning well, not only do they succeed but so does their organisation. It’s a win:win. Happy employees are more productive, creative and resilient. Employee wellbeing is linked to positive work behaviours and business success. It builds psychological capital, the positive human resource that helps organisations to flourish. Wellbeing at work is significantly associated with better job performance, lower absenteeism and greater retention. Mental health at work has suffered during the covid crisis. As we emerge from the pandemic, employee wellbeing is what will strengthen the way forward.
Here’s what one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Work – Triodos Bank – have to say about their experience.
“We worked with Miriam to bring the Happiness Habits workshop into Triodos Bank as part of a wider wellbeing programme. Miriam brought a huge amount of warmth, insight and energy to the sessions. She connected well with our co-workers and quickly earned their trust and engagement. She oozed credibility on the research and latest developments within positive psychology and presented in an interactive, practical and engaging way. The pre- and post-wellbeing evaluation assessment clearly demonstrated the positive impact that the workshops had on our co-workers’ wellbeing. This was reinforced by some of the feedback I received personally from co-workers once the programme had finished. Miriam is a true professional and someone who is enjoyable and very easy to work with. I very much look forward to working with her again soon.” Paula Searle, Head of HR

The Charter is built on a solid framework which ensures you have every angle of workplace wellbeing covered.
