The KAYA platform was developed by two organisational performance and employee engagement specialists, Dr Ram Raghavan, and Dr Lee Williams. Ram and Lee first met at Alliance Manchester Business School in 2003 and came back together in 2021 through a shared interest in the development of wellbeing-centric performance improvement solutions. They believe that employee wellbeing is an integral component of operational performance and business success. Regular wellbeing reviews ensure moments of disruption and distraction are minimised and a happy and engaged workforce is maintained.

Management struggles to understand what initiatives are needed and what can be discarded. Leaders and HR teams find it difficult to demonstrate the impact of wellbeing on performance.
Employees are assessed regularly, individual reports & recommendations are provided. KAYA connects them to relevant partners to address individual wellbeing challenges. Effectiveness of each wellbeing initiative is tracked and companies are able to understand the impact on performance.
