Health based performance management - a strategic post pandemic choice

The universal omnipresence of pandemic related stress factors is unprecedented in most people’s lifetimes.

Never before have we seen entire nations globally being effected by stress, fear, illness, grief, isolation and polarisation for such long periods of time. This undoubtedly had an impact on the active working population, in other words your human capital.

Stress, regardless of its source, has a negative impact on sleep, cognitive capacity, good decision making, efficiency, creativity and leadership skills. In addition it suppresses the immune system and makes people more vulnerable to getting sick.

Employers are in the unique position to counter the impact on the mental and cognitive health of their employees by investing in relevant and science based health and wellness education and coaching for entire teams as well as in in-depth 1:1 work with strategic staff members.

What are your people development strategy priorities? Are they wise investments when you know that people’s brains may not be functioning at full capacity? What about employee retention which we know is closely connected to how well people feel in their jobs and how well they feel cared for?

We are here to partner up with you to support your employees to perform at their full potential. Healthy brain function and stable moods are key for getting a job done with excellence and for authentic leadership as well as for people to simply feel good in their skins.

Lets have a conversation to get your questions answered

Every Tuesday and Thursday morning from 10am we reserve 30 min on Zoom to answer your questions about how we can support your performance management from a health based perspective. A healthy body and a healthy mind are a pre-requisite for good performance.
