Not all wellbeing programmes are equal

How do you create a wellbeing programme you’re proud of, and that actually gets the results you want?

It’s no secret that the costs to business of poor mental health have soared – £45 billion per year according to the latest research. But fixing the problem isn’t easy. There is no one-size fits all solution and buy-in from leadership teams and managers is essential.

Deloitte wanted to find some answers, and in January this year they published their latest report ‘Mental health and employers: refreshing the case for investment’. What they found deserves our attention.

Some wellbeing programmes are achieving a massive ROI of 11:1.

And what is it that makes the difference? Here are the 5 factors to pay attention to:

    1. Focus on the whole organisation to drive large‑scale culture change
    2. Support a large number of employees
    3. Take a proactive approach to mental health, focusing on prevention
    4. Develop the resilience of the organisation
    5. Take a data driven approach using technology and diagnostics to support those who are most at risk

So, forward-thinking organisations aren’t just tackling poor mental health, they are taking a proactive approach to developing resilience and optimising wellbeing.

Filling the resilience skills gap

With Mental Health First Aiders and Wellbeing Champions in place, many organisations are now looking to upskill their team so that they can deliver targeted interventions that support resilience.

To meet this need, the team at The Wellbeing Project developed Wraw.

Wraw is a scientifically validated psychometric tool that gives a robust measure of resilience and wellbeing at every level of an organisation. It is supported by a suite of resources, toolkits and masterclasses that ensure lasting change.

We are now working with organisations around the world to upskill their in-house teams of coaches and trainers to deliver Wraw. They develop the skill and confidence to deliver targeted resilience interventions where they are needed most, and the organisation experiences the impact of a wellbeing programme that delivers the results they’re looking for.

Become an accredited resilience coach and trainer with Wraw

On March 19th, Desiree Ashton, a leading expert in resilience and head of the Wraw Academy, will be hosting a short webinar on Wraw accreditation. If you’d like to find out more, or reserve a place, just follow the link: Wraw Webinar
