BeMe for Business

Working towards a happy workforce

The BeMe Approach for Business improves mental wellbeing and performance in the workplace. A flourishing workforce with healthy mental wellbeing increases the productivity of a company.

It’s becoming more and more important for employers to recognise the benefits of investing in the wellbeing of their employees. Research shows that nearly two thirds of UK employees experience stress in their jobs, and, in a CBI survey of over 800 companies, 98% of respondents said mental health should be a company concern. One in 5 people feel they couldn’t tell their boss if they were stressed at work (poll by Mind).

Why invest in your workforce?

A successful business is only as good as the people working in it. It doesn’t matter whether you are an SME or a multinational, a thriving business and flourishing employees are more productive. That’s why keeping your employees in good mental shape is so vital.

  • Flourishing people perform 16% better than their colleagues and experience 125% fewer burnouts.*
  • Flourishing employees are 32% more committed to their company.*
  • Studies show that flourishing people are 46% more satisfied with their jobs.*
* Figures taken from Spreitzer; et al. “Creating Sustainable Performance” Harvard Business Review, Jan 2012, Socially embedded model of thriving at work.

BetterMe offers a range of services to help individuals, teams and organisations improve their productivity, happiness and wellbeing at work.

The individual component parts of the BetterMe Approach are all thoroughly researched in addition to which, we have years of experience working with businesses.

The Programme

The BeMe Approach for Business Core Programme helps people to build an internal locus of control, the belief that they have the power to affect what happens to them in their lives.

People who are more resilient, who feel in control of themselves, who have better self-esteem and who demonstrate self-efficacy, self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy and social skills will not only flourish themselves but also help others to thrive too. Studies show that people with these emotional intelligence skills are not only more productive, they are also physically and psychologically healthier, have improved mental wellbeing. The 4 elements of the Core+ Programme  below are of the same duration as the Core Programme with an additional in-depth focus on one of the key elements. Each of the elements may also be taken as a Standalone Shortcourse with a duration of 3 hours.
