Workplace Wellness

ViWell provides evidence-based strategies to boost employee health, wellness, and engagement. We achieve this through co-design of work and spaces, and direct service or training. Well-designed work can create a culture of fun; contribute to resilience; provide active environments; and construct health, mental agility, and positive thinking.

ViWell programs complement human factors and ergonomics programs: if you have a strong company culture, the wellness services contribute to the message that, “we care”. Wellness that is embedded in work systems provides authentic, meaningful, and robust methods that contribute to employee health. ViWell offers an integrated organisational approach to wellness.

ViWell programmes are concerned with:

  • Aligning wellness programming with general business strategy
  • Involving workers in a collaborative, consultative, co-design for health & wellness programming 
  • Advancing a continuum of social-cohesion, health, wellness, and well-being
  • Designing work that is meaningful, coherent, and manageable for workers
  • Workforce strategy now and in the future and design for diversity
  • Personal health and resilience for metabolic health conditioning
  • Fostering resilience  to prevent burn-out or anxiety and improve relations  through work system design
  • Combating the ill-health effects of sedentary work and designing active work

We believe that workplace wellness is connected to well-being and “wholeness”, or how inspired you are in your working life. Wellness discovery includes:

  • Job, task, and work system analysis: integrated analysis of human, cognitive, psychosocial, and physical factors
  • Organisational strategy review: for example, the integration of wellness with health & safety, rehabilitation, employee engagement, workforce strategy, continuous improvement, operations,  facilities management, and project coordination
  • Review, analysis, and co-design of wellness programming management and content
  • Health & wellbeing surveys
  • Analysis of neurological sensory profiles of individuals or work teams to inform design practices
  • Work climate survey administration

The fundamentals of good work design should be integrated in wellness programming. Wellness in work design involves creating meaningful work to energise people while inspiring their personal health journeys.

  • Job and work re/design to support work performance, including programming support
  • Design for diversity strategies that help businesses enact their inclusivity policies, including neuro-diversity to enhance performance (reduce anxiety at work and promote relaxation)
  • Design ideation, concepts, and strategies for wellness programming that is integrated with whole-of-business strategies 
  • Establish environmental design principles to support well-being
  • Design of relaxation and rejuvenation strategies: environmental or virtual experiences, in partnership with design and technology teams

Realising wellness at work involves onoing training, celebration, support, and programming. It can include:

  • Facilitate learning or innovation teams
  • Partnering with technology providers for immersive experiences to reduce anxiety in high-risk environments or to allow for rejuvenation
  • ViLearn education or webinars, such as office ergonomics, or speciality topics such as sensory profiles and design for neurodiversity, positive thinking, relaxation strategies, breath work, resilience, mindfulness, good nutrition, hydration. Also, sedentary behaviour and low-impact physical activity, upper quadrant (upper limb) self-management strategies (“Straighten up to Power Up”), relaxation training, mindfulness training, or similar
  • Mind-body services: yoga, relaxation, meditation, flexibility, Pilates, mindfulness, general fitness, and on-site soft tissue management services
