Wellbeing has been established as the most significant predictor of productivity compared to interventions that only address potential ill health in the workforce. Wellbeing is also a significant factor in ‘presenteeism’ which costs an organisation between 6 and 10 times more than absenteeism.
Through compelling evidence based research COPE has developed its expertise in the field of wellbeing such that we are able to offer high-value, tailored consultancy services to our clients which address wellbeing at both a strategic level and at the level of practical interventions.
Wellbeing is not the same as ‘health’ – though mistakenly many organisations use the terms interchangeably. Wellbeing is focused on the balance between the challenges a person has to deal with day by day and their resources to deal with these challenges. Wellbeing is based around an individual’s perception in relation to the physical, psychological, environmental, economic and social aspects of their lives. The state of a person’s wellbeing is therefore dynamic and changeable and much broader than their health! Checking blood pressure and encouraging healthy eating won’t make any significant inroads into addressing the organisational challenges related to low levels of employee wellbeing.
COPE has a team of multi-disciplinary professionals including occupational health, human resources, occupational physiotherapy, psychology, human factors and ergonomics experts. So, whatever challenges you face we are able to offer you the widest possible perspective through the services we offer you.
We are proud to have developed a validated tool (WPT – Wellbeing and Productivity Tool) which measures the various aspects of wellbeing in an organisation. This tool gives our clients clear and prioritised recommendations to improve levels of wellbeing and productivity including the financial measurement of these benefits. Read more about our WPT here
