Our aim is to make work, wherever it is, a healthy, happy place.
This starts with wellbeing.
Our approachWe take a holistic, balanced, evidence-based approach to wellbeing. Using latest research from the fields of movement, connection, nutrition, sleep and mindfulness, our programme brings users a balance of simple, yet effective activities they can realistically complete each day. Our daily challenges are designed to be applicable to the majority – no matter their current fitness or wellbeing levels.
Movement, connection, nutrition, sleep and mindfulness are key to our programme and as such, we issue daily challenges and activities for each, to build healthy habits within your organisation.
Our playful team building experience gives you the connection and open-minded learning of an away day, without being away for a day!
Team members will receive points for each completed activity, based on effort and difficulty, which accumulates towards their individual wellbeing score and an accumulated team wellbeing index rating. Team members can privately see their own individual ranking, however team scores are accessible to all. Teams within the business compete against each other for the highest group score.
Individuals collaborate with their team on a group upskilling or business project experience by learning something new as a team. (This involves ‘meeting’ as a group to share learning tasks, discuss key learnings and increase knowledge.) And each day, there is an opportunity for teams to increase their scores by taking on additional challenges for bonus points.
The Wellbeing Games develops teams in an informative, fun, encouraging and positive 2-week programme (that can be repeated every 6-12 months), with wellbeing at it’s core.
Having spent years in the people profession, it’s always been clear that happy, healthy employees who have good colleague relationships, are the most effective in their work. This intuition is now underpinned by a whole body of research. The importance of wellbeing and positive behaviour as drivers of high performance are widely undisputed.
But this year we have a new challenge. How do you encourage healthy habits and good teamwork in the world of remote working? As a leader, how do you help your team stay focused and positive, and continue to show respect for each other when they’re apart?
I’ve always observed that teams who connect socially, about more than just their work, are more trusting, effective and happier in their job. But given recent events, this social element is fading fast. This lack of social contact is having an impact on wellbeing and collaboration. And it’s something that many businesses are worried about.
At The Wellbeing Games, we want to give everyone the opportunity to feel supported to improve their physical and emotional health. We also want them to interact in a fun way with their colleagues, even if they can’t be in an office together.
Within the games themselves, we take a holistic approach to wellbeing. No one domain is more important than another. Whether it’s movement, sleep, connection, nutrition or mindfulness, they are all equally important and all impact on each other.
Every human has a fundamental need to connect and to stay healthy. Our games are designed to help teams do both.

Team members will gain an understanding about how each challenge can build healthier habits and improve their wellbeing. After each day’s challenge users will receive their wellbeing score based on completion of each challenge.
Teams have the opportunity to either gain a new skill or work together to solve a business problem – connecting each day and working collaboratively to increase engagement and support each other to improve their wellbeing.
