The Joy Dept.

Workplace Wellbeing Consultancy

Workplace Wellness

Wellbeing is directly linked to resilience and can no longer be addressed as a tick-box exercise!

Resilient Thoughts = Resilient Actions

With over 50% of the workforce reporting they have little or no access to wellbeing support (CIPD) and stress and anxiety continuing to rise, we can no longer wait until things go wrong to provide support.

When individuals are recognised, supported and celebrated they are empowered to take ownership of their own wellbeing and resilience, which in turn raises productivity, morale and loyalty.

Investing in wellbeing at work has at least a 4:1 ROI (Deloitte) as a result of lowered sickness absence, turnover and work-related stress, saving you £££!

Whilst there is increasing awareness of the importance of employee resilience and wellbeing, until now there has been a gap in terms of how to measure it. WRAW, which stands for workplace resilience and wellbeing, is a psychometric tool that has been developed to provide these insights.

WRAW helps to increase employees’ self-awareness of their current levels of resilience and gives organisations rich data that can be used to support their workforce more effectively and engender a culture of healthy high performance.

How it Works

The online questionnaire takes around 15 minutes to complete. As well as generating personalised reports for individuals, Wraw provides data on the resilience and impact on wellbeing for leaders, teams and the whole organisation.

The leader and organisation reports offer insights into leadership behaviours that influence employee resilience and highlight specific pressure points, such as excessive working hours, employees feeling undervalued or lack of line manager support.

Using these analytics, organisations can target investment in wellbeing interventions, such as training, e-learning and coaching, based on their specific needs.

WRAW provides a holistic view, covering thinking style and the emotional and physical elements that impact wellbeing. The 5 Pillars of Resilience is a robust model used by hundreds of leading organisations across the UK and globally.
