About KAYA

Our history

The KAYA Wellbeing Index was devised by Dr Ram Raghavan’s PhD, as part of his academic research at Manchester Business School into how people value each other at a conscious and subconscious level.

The index was further developed following extensive research with business leaders, consultant neurologists and psychologists. The framework and methodology you see today link wellbeing to performance in an organisational context.

KAYA was a result of work carried out with various companies from 2006 to date. It was at this point that, out of Ram’s research and with the help of early adopters like Hilton Hotels, the KAYA wellbeing Index as we know it today was born.

Now with over 1.5 million contributors to the data set, we measure and index wellbeing of individuals in 55 countries, across 4 continents – and in 33 different languages. With teams in Berkshire in the UK, Srilanka and in India, along with a global partner network, we can provide global wellbeing insight solutions.

Our purpose is to help employees become the best version of themselves by helping them manage their wellbeing effectively. Our mission is to become a global leader in measuring wellbeing !
