“Employers are increasingly understanding the importance of taking a proactive approach to supporting employees’ health – physically, mentally and emotionally. This is not only for their employees’ wellbeing but also because of the business benefits of fostering healthy high performance. Wraw opens up new possibilities for individuals and organisations to understand more about their current levels of resilience, so they can develop effective strategies to maintain and enhance their wellbeing.”
