The Teesside University-led DigitalCity initiative is helping workforce wellbeing consultancy and training company, Key Wellbeing, to develop a digital solution to support employees throughout the coronavirus pandemic and beyond.
From physical and mental health, to relaxation and staff development, a suite of online resources and tailored training have been developed and digitised to help organisations from multiple sectors maintain a healthier, happier workplace.
Employers are assured a completely personalised experience, delivered over a 12-month period with fresh monthly content and regular fine-tuning to meet the requirements and preferences of their workforce.
Whether home working, in the office or on the road, employees can receive access to both digital tools and face-to-face sessions covering key areas including stress management, resilience, nutrition and lifestyle. Each led by expert fitness trainers, therapists and lifestyle coaches with an overall aim to help employees deal with workplace stresses and anxiety.
Born from seeing the need, Key Wellbeing co-founders Marie Ranson and Melissa Armstrong have a diverse background of training and therapy between them, as well as first-hand experience of workplace burnout and juggling busy lifestyles.
Melissa said: “Workplace wellbeing is now more important than ever. The rapid shift to remote working for many employees has amplified the anxiety in all of us – particularly with the additional stress of home schooling, illness and uncertainty. With that in mind we knew we had to offer our support.”
Marie adds “Having experienced workplace burnout myself, I’m determined to help businesses embed an effective wellbeing strategy. We want to highlight how important prioritising and maintaining the health and wellbeing of employees is not just now but post Covid-19.”
“The DigitalCity Accelerator Programme has enabled us to further extend our digital support and provide some much needed close attention to concerns around remote working and returning to the office.”
