Coping with Political Unrest and the Pandemic

Social Health Impacting Motivation and Morale

How Wellness for Life helped over 100 staff by providing well-being tools during lockdown

When Lloyds Bank approached us in the U.K. with a brief of needing to support the mental and social health of their staff during lockdown, we knew exactly what to do. Like many companies around the world, COVID-19 has impacted employee moral and motivation and the uncertainty of the future has become overwhelming for so many. Apart from the general challenges of remote working, employees were struggling with anxiety around job security, since Lloyds were undergoing a big re-structure.

Our tailor made programme was designed to give employees simple, yet effective tools to help them on a number of levels. The breathing techniques we shared helped employees manage their stress and anxiety by staying present and also served to improve their sleep, focus and concentration. Physical stress accumulated by sitting down in front of computer screens for long periods of time was addressed with a set of stretches that improve posture and fatigue. How to manage emotions such as fear was a topic covered by our Ted-X motivational speaker, whose dynamic energy always makes an impact with those he works with.

When we asked Business Agility Senior Manager, Amit Chadha why he chose Wellness for Life above other companies, he said “It was the energy, it was the enthusiasm, the 360 degree approach…not only wellness, but mental health, emotional health and physical health” which was the selling point for him.

What impact did we have?

At Wellness for Life we are fully invested in creating positive changes in the lives of those we work with. That is why we conduct a health assessment to measure the impact of the programmes we deliver. This way, we were able to further support our client’s needs, always striving to make our content even more impactful. We are invested in creating sustainable behavioural change and the results of our assessments both pre and post course delivery play a big role in helping us achieve this with our clients.

Here is what we were able to deduce from John Lewis Hong Kong partners, post course delivery:

Those who recognised a difference in productivity levels
Those that were able to better manage their emotions
Those who said they felt equipped with tools to manage stress and anxiety
Those that felt less anxious after the course
Those that benefitted from the course in some way
