Employee Wellbeing


Employee Wellbeing isn't some 'touchy feely' nice to have idea.
It may be your organisations greatest unrealised asset, and unleashing it can greatly impact how 

engaged, productive, innovative & creative your employees and teams are.

The good news is that you don't need expensive wellbeing initiatives or company-wide benefit increases to improve employee wellbeing.

Employees who experience high levels of wellbeing help your organisation thrive, with studies showing they are more productive, more creative, better at problem solving, and work better as part of a team.

Higher wellbeing also results in reduced absenteeism, less sick leave, reduced stress & burnout, greater staff retention, and higher customer service ratings.

I teach research-based, science-backed, practical skills that improve your employees wellbeing.

Workforces who experience high levels of wellbeing are: 

  • 6x more likely to feel engaged
  • 29% more likely to be productive
  • 45% more likely to be satisfied in their jobs
  • 46% less likely to take sick days
  • 125% less likely to burn out
  • 32% less likely to quit
  • 24-59% less staff turnover

Often people believe that improving their wellbeing is beyond their reach, and requires huge lifestyle changes that aren't practical for them. The truth is that our wellbeing is far less dependent on our circumstances than we might think, and more closely correlated to our reactions to those circumstances.


Research shows that the consistent application of small daily habits, most of which take no longer than a couple of minutes a day, is what is really required, ad is most effective.
