The Proactive Wellbeing Platform
Govox is a wellbeing platform designed to foster healthier and more productive teams & workplaces, by connecting with and better supporting employees and providing employers with actionable insights derived from wellbeing analytics. Govox helps improve the Mental Health & Wellbeing of our colleagues, thereby reducing absenteeism & staff turnover whilst improving presenteeism in organisations.
The challenges of mental health management in the workplace
In today's fast-paced work environment, ensuring the mental wellbeing of employees often becomes a complex task for managers and organisations alike. Traditional methods like annual surveys or open-door policies lack the immediacy and precision to gauge real-time mental health status.
As a result, issues like employee burnout, disengagement, and decreased productivity can go unnoticed until they reach a critical point. Furthermore, without actionable insights or a structured approach, managers find it difficult to implement effective wellbeing programmes.
This gap not only affects individual team members but can also have a lasting impact on the overall health of the organisation.

How Govox supports your people
Our wellbeing platform provides staff, students and club members with useful, actionable insights and resources, while leaders are given tools to connect and offer the right wellbeing support. You’ll benefit from:
Maximise existing support
When someone in your organisation needs professional support, they are given the option to connect with a BACP accredited counsellor via the Govox In the Moment Support Line.
If you already have access to this type of service, for example via EAP, we can integrate with that.
The results of our wellbeing survey can be made anonymous or visible, and the whole thing takes less than two minutes to complete, meaning people are more likely to engage.
Data is useful but clear insights enable you to make a real difference. With personalised results, you’ll be able to identify trends or patterns in an individual and spot key areas of concern.
We exist to facilitate a bond of trust between you and your teams – you’ll know when to step in and, importantly, how to offer the support that makes the difference.
Reduced absenteeism & staff turnover
Give leaders, employees, students and club members the tools to manage mental health and make them less likely to take sick days or prolonged time off.
This results in increased retention and, consequently, lower recruitment costs where applicable.
Improved productivity and performance
The platform enables you to foster a people-centric ethos that shows everyone their wellness is important and their contribution is highly valued.
Why do I need this?
With 1 in 4 UK adults experiencing a Mental Health problem each year, early identification of employees who may be at risk for sickness related to Wellbeing, offers a substantial ROI alongside your duty of care.
Govox changes the focus from reactive measures, which often involve costs related to sick pay, temporary staffing and lowered productivity, to proactive, preventive and supportive actions.
These proactive steps can dramatically lower the costs associated with absenteeism while enhancing employee engagement and output.
