PEOPLE SOLUTIONS

Wellbeing - We empower personal accountability for wellbeing

Traditionally managing negative wellbeing symptoms at work has involved ramping up rewards or benefits packages; organising wellbeing-themed weeks, with a range of activities; and signposting people towards an Employee Assistance Programme. These are all fine, but at Bailey & French, but do they go far enough?

We take a strategic approach that moves away from trying to mitigate the effects of poor wellbeing and works to embed wellbeing into the foundations of organisational culture.

Our solutions create platforms for people to get a better understanding of psychological wellbeing, using the most recent Positive Psychology research on ways to flourish and thrive in work and beyond. We equip people with the right skills and tools, empowering individuals and teams to improve and maintain their wellbeing on a daily basis. We give immediate access to learning and tools that are simple, globally scalable, and blend easily into existing initiatives.
