Healthy people. Thriving business.
With over 16 years’ experience coaching CEO’s, Business Owners and Entrepreneurs to optimal health and performance, I have witnessed firsthand the difference a healthy corporate environment can make and the dramatic impact it can have across all levels of an organisation.
In some of the most successful companies, leaders at all levels recognize the inextricable link between employee health and wellbeing and workforce effectiveness and productivity.
The economic landscape of the past five years has proven to be a difficult one to navigate from both an employer and employee perspective. Many sectors have undergone significant change in response to market conditions creating uncertainty and increased levels of stress with employees.
With the corporate business environment being one of constant and relentless change and pressure, a high level of performance is not only essential but also expected from executives and employees day in day out. And with the desire to drive increased efficiency an ‘always on’ mentality has developed, and now become the “norm” severely challenging the paradigm of work/life balance. The importance of an organisation’s health and wellbeing cannot be underestimated and is absolutely essential to operating an effective, successful, sustainable and thriving organisation.
Creating a culture within your organisation that embraces health oriented behaviours creates a solid foundation and provides the fuel that drives productivity and sustainability.
