Struggle to link impact of wellbeing on performance
The average Briton spends 3,507 days at work in their lifetime, our findings also reveal that work is the most common source of stress in the UK.

Studies have shown that when the decision by management to embrace the business case for team/employee wellbeing at work, it complements more conventional methods of improving employee attitudes and productivity, which in turn enhances organisational effectiveness and decision making..

Organisations in general struggle to understand and identify how an individual or teams wellbeing impacts performance. There exists no structured way to triangulate wellbeing challenges, the investment made in addressing these challenge’s and the impact it has on performance.
The KAYA wellbeing programme allows managers to identify how wellbeing challenges impact the individuals and the team.
The KAYA wellbeing programme then identifies the top three areas that get impacted as a result of these challenges. Provided with this knowledge, the manager can then create wellbeing support initiatives that will have the maximum impact.
