Corporate Wellbeing


Escape the cult of average! 

It is no secret that in order to achieve the best business results, an organisation needs to have a relentless focus on its key success assets – their people. At a time when we are expecting more from our workforce, the impact of poor health and wellbeing is becoming more and more evident. Our international research illustrates this perfectly, 69% of teams reporting daily low energy levels, 78% describe being overwhelmed with their workload and are finding it difficult to make decisions, whereas 65% wake up each day NOT feeling refreshed or revitalised to start their work. These issues and more could be effecting the vitality, health and performance of you and your organisation.

Leading organisations are increasingly re-examining their value systems and are reaping the benefits of incorporating health and wellbeing into their work culture. Even small changes to a person’s lifestyle and habits facilitated through education, can make a huge difference to the way people feel and perform. Want to guess the leading health challenge of facing employers today? No prizes for guessing stress!!!

Moving from surviving, to THRIVING! 

Giving employees the opportunity to invest in their own wellbeing at work puts them directly in the driving seat enabling them to be more productive, more energised and more engaged – qualities that cannot fail to show ultimately as a benefit to business effectiveness and profits. This has been globally recognised and demonstrated in the recent formation of the Global Centre for Healthy Workplaces in 2013. Recent winners are IBM, Toyal America and Telefonica. The finalists this year are GSK and Chevron – where did your organisation come in the rankings?

Optimum Living have designed, managed and delivered successful, high impact health and wellbeing programmes across the world, including Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the US. These programmes have measurably improved the performance of individuals and teams, ensuring people are given the conditions to thrive. From improving energy and focus levels, to reducing absenteeism, increasing employee engagement and talent retention – the right corporate wellbeing programme does a lot more than tell people to eat better and exercise more. The World Economic Forum has predicted $47 trillion of cumulative output loss in the next two decades due to chronic diseases and mental health disorders. Employee wellbeing is not a ‘nice to have’ it is a strategic imperative!

Matthew, Corporate Sales, Software

Inspired, invigorated and feeling valued. This is how I left Colette’s workshop. After 18 years in a Corporate environment, no-one had ever offered advice on how to manage stress or improve my nutrition and energy levels, so this was a breath of fresh air. Thank you kindly for your insight. I plan to make ‘big’ changes.

Helen, Marketing & Communications, Telecoms

The approach to the subject area was the crucial bit for me, Colette made it relevant to business needs and used language that made it easy to follow. From the workshop I have made a number of changes that are positively affecting my energy levels and productivity inside and outside of work and 3 months on they are still part of my life. I highly recommend Colette and Optimum Living’s approach to any large global business looking to make some ‘real’ improvements to their team’s wellbeing
