Here at ORL, we take workplace wellbeing and productivity seriously. It’s our belief that teams – leaders, managers and employees who are resilient, adaptive and flexible and create great working environments will be the ones that raise business performance and drive up productivity. But in today’s world of constant change, the reality is that not everyone feels able to deal with change and the demands the world of work places upon them. As a result, the issues of employee wellbeing in the workplace and absence management have become increasingly important. Our Workplace Wellbeing programs are designed to improve mental health in the workplace.

Research into these areas has revealed that:

  • The healthiest 25% of the workforce is around 18% more productive than the 25% who are the least healthy – equivalent to one working day per week (Economic and Social Research Council).
  • In 2017/18 595,000 workers suffered from work-related stress, depression or anxiety. This equated to 15,4 million working days lost (, an increase of 23% on the previous year.

What is Workplace Wellbeing?

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) define workplace wellbeing as:

‘Creating an environment to promote a state of contentment which allows an employee to flourish and achieve their full potential for the benefit of themselves and the organisation’.

Workplace Wellbeing involves a lot more than ensuring that employees don’t go sick! It represents a much broader approach that includes physical, mental and social health. It’s about individuals knowing what to do and who to talk to when they begin to feel stressed or depressed; it’s also about being able to spot when people aren’t at their best and providing support to help get them back on track. It goes without saying that employees who are physically and mentally capable are much more likely to be engaged and productive at work

So we’ve teamed up with The Wellbeing Programme and combined our collective expertise in the fields of leadership, employee development, resilience and stress management to deliver a range of revolutionary new programmes for leaders, managers and employees just like you.
