Our Story

The KAYA platform was developed by two employee engagement and wellbeing 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.

 At the heart of KAYA is our proprietary Employee Experience Survey.  Developed as part of Ram’s PhD at Alliance Manchester Business School and later refined through a series of extensive field studies with Centrica, Hilton Hotels and XXXX.  The survey has been used extensively to improve individual employee wellbeing and diagnose manager-employee challenges.
