A seasonal message from Sam

Both in the UK and globally, 2019 has seen wellbeing in the workplace continue to be recognised as both a strategic and human priority. And here at The Wellbeing Project we’ve been hard at work building awareness and driving change for our incredible clients and partners. Here are just a few highlights. Creating a world […]

Financial Wellbeing & Employee Engagement

Money is often at the forefront of our minds, influencing our thoughts, moods and everyday decisions, yet we generally prefer to keep quiet about it. Our financial circumstances can be a huge source of personal stress, and are often so closely linked to our identity and sense of status that they can lead to feelings […]

Wellbeing And Remote Working

Earlier this year, we talked about the importance of role-modelling healthy behaviours in facilitating a culture of wellbeing. At both a team and an organisational level, the influence of culture on employee wellbeing should not be underestimated – yet is often overlooked. Placing the onus solely on individuals to take care of their own wellbeing […]

Working With Focus

Most people would probably agree that they would like to be able to work with more focus. After all, when we’re focused, we are able to be more efficient and therefore productive, we are less likely to make mistakes, we can really immerse ourselves in the tasks we enjoy, and time even goes faster for […]

The Cost Of Body Image To Mental And Financial Wellbeing

With many living in an ‘always on’ culture, we are so often reminded to put our phones down, disconnect from the digital world and interact with the real world more. And whilst this is certainly advice worth following, in practice it […]

Are you Role Modelling Wellbeing?

Businesses are experiencing a greater rate of change than ever before  – career needs, technological advancements, diversity in the workplace, customer demographics and generational expectations are constantly shifting and evolving. In the face of such widespread change, it’s important to be aware of, and to proactively manage, our mental health and wellbeing. Mental health and […]

Meetings That Matter

We’re now several weeks into a new year, and many of us will be settling into a comfortable pace of work. Whether you took some time away from the proverbial ‘coal face’ over the festive period, or simply used the ‘lull’ in normal work-flow to catch up on your To Do list, January is often […]
