Healthy Working Life

Principles-based, framework-driven, diverse, human-centric approach to enable you to have a Healthy Working Life.

A Definition of Health in The Healthy Working Life Context

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – World Health Organisation

The World Health Organisation (WHO) definition reflects the scope of the Healthy Working Life understanding of health and its necessary concerns. The services reflect the broad scope of concerns that impact health and well-being in a work context, including working culture and practices. Social and mental well-being considerations are critical for achieving healthy, sustainable working at the individual, team and organisation levels.

How It Works

  • Principles-based

    How we work, manage others and operate a business is ultimately based upon a set of principles and assumptions, some of which promote a healthy workplace, while others are detrimental in a manner that harms the organisation and its people. Some of the principles I propose may go against “accepted wisdom”, but the value becomes apparent when assessed against a broad enough range of measures.

  • Diverse

    Diversity, Equity and Inclusion have risen up the corporate agenda in recent years, but there’s still a long way to go. The benefits of diverse thinking are now widely recognised on a theoretical level, but there’s a long way to go “on the ground”. Even where a diverse team exists, they often operate within a work culture that inhibits the realisation of the available benefits.

  • Framework-driven

    The approach is underpinned by a “Sustainable Working” framework, developed over a period of two decades. This provides a process that:

    1. Enables a sufficient but evolving understanding of current state
    2. Supports identification of the highest priority areas to address
    3. Mitigates risk while issues are addressed
    4. Supports the implementation of a realistic plan to introduce the required changes identified
    5. Verifies the efficacy of the implementation – it is vital to ensure that the desired outcomes are actually being achieved

    The framework helps maximise return on investment for existing initiatives and programmes, but it also enables a better understanding as to whether existing processes and approaches are insufficient or even counterproductive. The framework, by design, is effective:

    • At the individual, team and organisational levels
    • Across all work sectors and role types
  • Human-centric

    People are at the heart of the approach. While effective application of technology is of major importance, every aspect of a ‘business’ (in its broadest definition) ultimately impacts people in some manner. Successful application of the Sustainable Working framework enables a healthy, effective workforce, which in turn sustains and grows a healthy business.
