''With all it's sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.''
Max Ehrmann - Desiderata

How do we 'measure' wellbeing?

We use a psychometric tool called WRAW, which stands for 'workplace resilience and wellbeing'.WRAW creates employee self-awareness around personal resilience, provides tools to improve wellbeing at work, and rich data that can be used to target pressure points for the organisation.The data 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 - these are; Energy, Future Focus, Flexible Thinking, Inner Drive and Strong Relationships.

Resilient Thoughts = Resilient Actions

  • 50% of the workforce report they have little or no access to wellbeing support (CIPD, 2021) with an average of only 5% using Employee Assistance Programs

  • 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 (Mayo, 1929)

  • On average employees took 3 days off work to address a wellbeing issue over a 12 month period – for a company with 1000 employees that’s a cost of around £160,000 (Lane, Clark and Peacock 2021)

Testimonials'The positive nature of the input and the encouragement and empowerment I feel as a result of this coaching alongside the truly bespoke way support has been tailored to my requirements has helped me to make great progress in a short space of time. Emily’s professional acumen and knowledge of a whole host of related subjects is exceptional.''More people in (a redundancy) situation should/would really benefit from this support. It provides a fantastic bridge between feeling I had nothing and realising I’ve actually got plenty to offer another employer.''Emily got to the heart of the matter very quickly and offered clear solutions. Brilliant.''Emily Alexander was very effective as a coach, both in terms of revisiting wellbeing techniques and providing some very insightful tips for CVs/interviews. I would highly recommend for people wishing to gain wellbeing assistance and/or job-hunting advice. The service offers a combination of emotional and practical assistance which could serve a wide range of situations.''I found Emily´s approach was friendly and relaxed and practically helpful. It was useful for me to discuss current issues and problems with someone who is not personally and emotionally involved, and so was able to take an impartial and independent view of the situation.''It was so helpful to be able to talk about a lot of the things I’d been going round in circles thinking about, it really helped me clarify what I need to focus on.''Emily is a person who is incredibly professional with high levels of emotional intelligence and personal accountability. She is trustworthy and caring and will be able to help anyone with supporting them in their small business endeavours. Highly recommended! Thanks Emily for all that you do for me; it’s a pleasure to work with you.''Emily is a delight to work with, she lives and breathes the brands she works for! She is passionate and just an amazing person to help your business. She is such a positive person and a real asset. I can not recommend her highly enough! She will be as much of an asset to you as she is to me!'
