Who we are
We help organizations in their everyday challenges related to the wellbeing of their employees.
We know what it takes to create a work environment for employees that makes them feel welcome, cared for, valuable.
So that they can perform at their best.
Passion, courage, curiosity and (a lot of) fun.
"I have experienced myself how difficult it could be to execute an employee wellness program - i. to identify what areas to address, and how to address them;
ii. to develop new wellness benefit plans and to get them approved by Regional and Global Comp & Ben; iii. to find and contract various wellness consultants and go through the whole internal procurement process; iv. to coordinate the agenda for Wellness awareness days/months; v. to communicate the program to employees and measure the results.
I've met many businesses, HR professionals, employee program owners who've experienced similar challenges. As an HR manager I have always thought how convenient it would be if I had one partner company to cooperate with, for everything that is wellness-related.
My hope is to help your organisations to improve your employees' performance through care about their wellness, so that you can tell a different story."
