Assistance with your workplace wellness strategy

Workplace wellbeing design made easy!

Wellness Strategy Design

Design partnership service - help where you need it most!

Joyworkz can assist companies in designing and implementing a workplace wellness strategy. Most businesses these days recognise that investing in employee health and wellness is both the right and legal thing to do. However, many are also coming to realise that it is also the smart thing to do. Investing in and supporting workers’ health can result in significant benefits over time.

Sometimes, due to busy workloads, companies don’t have staff with time available to focus on creating a workplace wellness strategy. That’s where we come in! We are happy to help as much or as little as you need.

The kinds of things we can help with:

Whatever stage you are at on your workplace wellness journey, we can help. For instance:

  • Drafting initial proposal to management – could include initial brief review (or snapshot) of current strengths and needs; help with developing a business case (and getting senior leadership buy-in)
  • In-depth needs assessment – taking a look at what data you have already and collecting other information that might be useful e.g. a short staff survey, a few interviews with key stakeholders, observations of staff; determining priorities
  • Strategy and design – creating a strategy/programme based on your needs e.g. policy development, establishing a wellness committee/champions, creating an action plan, building in evaluation
  • Coordination/partnership – coordinating programme implementation with your staff or even working with other partners (workplace wellness service providers) 
  • Monitoring and evaluation – helping you incorporate learnings into your future planning

You might need assistance over one or two days (e.g. policy or proposal writing), or longer (e.g. strategy design).

Wherever you find yourself on your workplace wellness journey, please feel free to contact us for a chat to see if we can help. If we think we can be of assistance, we will then provide a no-obligation quote.
