The Engage! Programme

Is your team happy and resilient?

Engage Participants

Sickness and absence affects the bottom line, with stress being the number one reason.

Engage! is a  fresh approach to help employers look after their staff. Technology is all around, but time is short. There are ever increasing demands on businesses in a noisy marketplace and employers look to their teams for more productivity, less cost and more profit.

Nearly a third of companies reported that stress-related absence in their organisation has increased over the past year1.The average number of sick days taken are 6.3 per employee. In 2014/15 stress accounted for 43% of all working days lost due to ill health2.

When that staff member gets back from sickness, another one or two members of staff follow suit after picking up the strain. The cost of replacing those that can no longer cope and leave is estimated at £20,000 for a skilled professional.

What is the solution?

Whilst there is no quick fix, it is acknowledged that action is needed by businesses in order to retain staff and attract top talent. Most newly qualified graduates today place holiday days and corporate social responsibility above salary in their list of requirements for a job. Even long serving staff are increasingly finding stress too much and seeking out alternative employment.

The solution has to be simple, effective and long lasting – changes in values and culture take time and if new methods aren’t reinforced and adopted as daily routines they are quickly forgotten.

After working with thousands of people we have created a programme that effectively provides a solution to mind, body and spirit wellbeing. With group workshops, practical exercises and a feedback and support system, organisations that work with us notice an instant improvement in morale and mood.

We focus on four key areas, with three workshops in each area:

Mental Calm and Resilience Physical Fitness and Health Happiness and Contentment Understanding Goals and striving forwards

We have produced a 12 part, progressive programme that can be undertaken in a way to suit you. Our clients can book hourly sessions or half day and full day workshops. This allows teams to create their own agenda for health and wellbeing in the workplace.

We have a pricing structure that rewards organisations with more competitive prices should you book 6 or more workshops with us.

We would love to speak to your organisation today!

Client Feedback

Nicky hosted a wellbeing session for Curtis Banks staff to enable us to understand more about the great work she does and how she rediscovered her bounce!

The 60 minute session consisted of some very useful techniques which could be applied to both work and personal life. The staff who attended thoroughly enjoyed the session and feedback was extremely positive.

We all felt that the session was both inspiring and engaging and certainly had a bounce in our step following it! I would highly recommend this session.

It was good because Nicky involved us really well and gave us a few key things that we can action straight away in our day to day lives, which is very helpful. She gave a very nice introduction which was easy to understand; you can tell she has knowledge and experience. There was a lovely group setting - I felt a part of the group.

Attending a 'Discover Your Bounce' workshop with Nicky was simply fantastic.  I was delighted to come away not only with a deeper insight into where and why my energy levels were dipping, but also with an invaluable toolkit of exercises and tips to ensure I know exactly how to protect, nurture and boost my energy.

Working with Nicky is always such a delight. I whole heartedly recommend her workshops and programmes.
