Employee Wellbeing Programmes

What is Employee Wellbeing?

Employee wellbeing relates to the influence an individuals job can have on their overall mental health and happiness. When we refer to wellness or wellbeing, we’re discussing a mixture of physical health and good mental health. This is why our employee wellbeing programmes are so important for enhancing employee and business health.

Wellbeing is quickly becoming a core obligation of good corporate responsibility and a significant performance-focused strategy to encourage employee engagement and productivity. No longer an optional or sometimes ignored part of business functions and the workplace, well-being is now key to businesses and imperative for high-energy, dynamic companies.

The best companies appreciate that looking after employees is both a necessity and an asset for healthy businesses. In 2017 131 million days were lost to sickness absence, of which 21% for musculoskeletal conditions and 11.54% for mental health issues, including stress and anxiety (Office for National Statistics).

The benefits of having employee wellbeing activities in companies have been highlighted by numerous studies. According to these, wellbeing at work fosters better team morale and engagement, a healthier and more inclusive culture, lower sickness absence, improved productivity, enhanced employer brand, reduced work-related stress and better staff retention (CIPD Health and Wellbeing at Work May 2018 Survey).

At Joyful Living we help clients develop their wellbeing strategy, based on their employee wellbeing goals. Our programmes comprise wellbeing activities delivered on a regular basis, chosen to have a lasting impact on quality of life at work. We also monitor the results through personalised health screenings held periodically during the year.

A regular wellbeing programme guarantees lasting benefits at reduced costs for companies through our discounted rates.

Happy Customer

  • “We worked with Joyful Living to provide the massages for our company Wellness Day
    in January 2019. The entire process was so straightforward and the whole booking process
    was simple, with no issues on the day of the event. It was such great value and we had
    excellent feedback from all of our employees on the quality of the massages. It was such a
    success that now we have started a year long wellbeing program for our employees, with
    yoga, onsite massage and one wellbeing workshop on a monthly basis. Wouldn’t hesitate to
    recommend! Thank you Nisha and team!

As a company, we wanted to create a 'Wellness Month' which included workshops on Mental Health, Nutrition, Stress,... Anxiety and Well-being. The overall feedback was very positive, all who attended learnt a great deal. The trainers Audra & Melissa were amazing, very warm and welcoming. Both made staff feel at ease which encouraged them to ask more questions and share experiences. Melissa also sent over the slides from her sessions which included breathing exercises and advice. This was very helpful for our team. Very Happy - Thank You Againread more
