Wellbeing for Small Businesses

This is an affordable wellbeing option for small businesses

Wellbeing is something business owners feel they should be offering their employees, especially mental health. 

Employers understand they have a duty of care to look after the mental and physical wellbeing of their staff and want it to become a part of their company culture, but they don’t want it to come across as a tick box exercise.

For a lot of business owners, they don’t know where to start as it is not their area of expertise. They may start something but what they offer can be sporadic and not sustainable. Sometimes it’s been given to a member of staff to get the ball rolling, but when resources are tight it more often than not falls by the wayside.

We give you access to our online platform 24/7, you can log in on your laptop or phone in the office, at home or from anywhere in the world whether you’re on business or on holiday. This means that your employees’ families benefit from the programme too.

The idea of a wellbeing programme may not be for everyone, for some it is there just as a resource when they need it, for others, it’s there to inspire or nudge them into living a healthier lifestyle.

About your host

Rachel McGuinness is a workplace wellbeing expert. Up until 2004 she worked in marketing and events in the telecoms industry. Since then she’s been helping business people to get healthy and reclaim their energy, so they can get back on their game in a more sustainable way.

In the year 2000 she realised that her busy corporate life had caused her to become so unhealthy that she was heading for burnout and some serious health issues. She decided to completely change how she lived her life. She got into a proper sleep routine, adopted a cleaner approach to eating, got a handle on her stress levels and added regular exercise to her daily habits. Now she is just over 20kg or 44lbs lighter and four dress sizes smaller.

She is trained in cognitive behaviour therapy for insomnia, mental health first aid, nutrition, personal fitness training, stress management, neuro linguistic programming and hypnotherapy. Rachel works all over the UK and Europe, predominantly working with forward thinking businesses in the technology, health and travel sectors who understand the benefits of looking after the mental and physical wellbeing of their employees.
