Creating employee happiness

Does it make commercial sense to focus on how your employees feel? At PES, we think so. People who enjoy coming to work are more productive and engaged. They work harder, contribute more and help organisations to succeed.

We can help you boost your organisation’s wellbeing with our simple, three-step approach. Workplace wellbeing needn’t be too ‘fluffy’ or expensive for your business. If you don’t fancy meditation Mondays or fat-free Fridays, you can still give your employees more energy, mental agility and positivity with just a few creative ideas.

A holistic approach to wellbeing

Why is PES wellbeing different? Listen to Debbie Kleiner, Head of Workplace Happiness, explain why we take a holistic approach.

With the complementary areas of expertise PES can offer, your wellbeing programme will make the most of any existing employee benefits. Wellbeing and engagement go hand-in-hand, so get your workplace wellbeing strategy right for a positive employee experience.

Really enjoyed the workshop, very relaxing, different from the norm. Very positive session.

Three steps to a healthier business

Our workplace wellbeing solution begins with clear-headed analysis. What are the key business problems you need to address?

You might be worried about sickness levels. You may have noticed a dip in productivity. Perhaps you just want to attract the right talent with a package that beats off the competition. Whatever the business issue, that’s our starting point.

Step 1: Check

Once we understand your concerns, we’ll take the temperature of your organisation with a comprehensive wellbeing audit. That means asking employees through focus groups and questionnaires what could make their working life better. If there’s a gap between your expectations and their experience, a direct enquiry from an independent third party will elicit some honest answers.

Users receive detailed feedback at the end of the ‘check’ stage, plus access to our resources library with lots of information on a huge range of health issues.

Step 2: Plan

We’ll use our robust, evidence-based findings to develop a detailed, achievable plan. Here’s where the creativity really comes in. Throw your assumptions about wellbeing to the wind – our recommendations might be light touch, detailed or radical. Whatever we suggest, we’ll make wellbeing work for you.

There is no ‘off-the-shelf’ answer to increased wellbeing. Every organisation is different – so let us devise a tailored, measurable plan that will boost your employees’ wellbeing at a price you can afford.

Step 3: Deliver

With our unique combination of employee benefits, HR and wellbeing expertise, we can deliver on any aspect of the plan, from organisational change through to fitness days. Our wide network of partners means we can get the best deals for training packages, health screening programmes, exercise classes and more.

When it comes to delivering wellbeing workshops, we take the hassle of organising, vetting and finding top quality practitioners. If you want a one off workshop, a series of events, a wellbeing day or something in between, please get in touch.

I found the Mental Health First Aid course interesting and was pleased how many of our team contributed. The group activities worked well and were long enough to be beneficial but short enough to keep interest.

Mental health workshops

We deliver a range of mental health workshops endorsed by Mental Health First Aid England.

Our two-day Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) course qualifies participants to become Mental Health First Aiders. We also offer one- and half-day courses to help a wider spectrum of employees develop their understanding and reduce stigma around mental health. If we aren’t running an open course near you, contact us to arrange an on-site workshop for your employees.

Wellbeing and employee benefits

Employee benefits contribute to staff satisfaction, especially when they include lifestyle activities like discounted cinema tickets, eating out and online shopping. Many improve health and offer wellbeing ‘add-ons’ as well – for example, a health insurance package that includes reduced prices for spa days. Our benefits expertise means we can recommend affordable products that your staff will really appreciate.

We have the technology with our online benefits solution to give employees a great experience. Our platform is easy to use, and keeps communication simple, effective and engaging – much more fun than filling out forms!

Employers are realising the effect stress can have on absence rates and productivity. But focusing on workplace wellbeing helps to create a culture where burnout can be avoided and productivity is the natural outcome of a happy workforce.
