So what is WRAW?

How do you 'measure' wellbeing?

We use a psychometric tool called WRAW, which stands for 'workplace resilience and wellbeing'.

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.

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.

Resilient Thoughts = Resilient Actions

  • 50% of the workforce report they have little or no access to wellbeing support (CIPD, 2021)

  • 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)
