Nurturing productive teams with reduced absences
Organisations that invest in workplace wellbeing programmes reap the rewards of engaged, satisfied and productive employees who want to thrive and are less likely to take time off. The business benefits of a comprehensive wellbeing strategy are clear. But for the employees themselves, the benefits are also vast. Traditional employee assistance programmes (EAPs) often struggle with poor access rates and low engagement. However, Govox can signpost you to support that's already in place.
How employees benefit from workplace wellbeing programmes
Healthy and happy individuals feel motivated in their roles because they’re supported by their managers in an environment that’s conducive to their high-quality work. Thanks to workplace wellbeing, employees feel valued and their hard work is recognised, meaning they’re more likely to produce better work and take pride in it. They’re genuinely invested in the business and want to do well – and it shows.
What’s more, employees who feel supported are better equipped to deal with stress and other work-related worries, meaning their mental health is less likely to suffer.
Personal wellbeing report
Support wellbeing with a personal wellbeing report
A workplace wellbeing assessment, the Govox wellbeing platform enables employers, managers and leaders to demonstrate their support in helping employees to lead happy, healthy lives. Participants complete a check in and answer questions to help you understand your team’s mental health and better gauge which wellbeing initiatives are working and identify areas that may need further attention. Based on their results, individuals then receive a personal wellbeing report, which includes personalised content and supportive materials tailored to their needs.
Employee wellness strategies like these not only cater to employees’ needs and prioritise their mental health, they also ensure your business is an attractive opportunity for any future candidates.
HOW WE CAN HELP
We turn difficult situations into positive outcomes.
Understanding mental health isn’t easy. Using technology and an effective proactive approach, we can improve happiness and save lives in the workplace, education and sports organisations.
- People are invited to check in on a digital device and answer a series of short, friendly questions. This takes less than two minutes and is simple to engage with.
- Check-in results on the Govox wellbeing dashboard instantly highlight those who may benefit from some support, enabling organisations to have the conversations that matter.
- After each check in, the participant will receive their own personal wellbeing report, which offers proven wellbeing techniques tailored to their specific answers.
We use Govox to support the Palace for Life Foundation staff. With around 41 employees, it’s a really easy way to engage and support. Additionally it has provided an opportunity to reach out to furloughed staff. Even from the first couple of check-ins, we have directly been able to support individuals so it’s been very effective so far.

Knowing that we have invested in the tool because you care about their wellbeing has significantly contributed to employee engagement and we have seen a strong uptake.
