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.
