In Corporate Wellness Blog by tailoredfit

For over 6 years now, I have worked to improve the health of those working in the square mile of London. Over this time I began to notice patterns correlating between issues, habits, struggles and achievements. But these correlations were not just limited to health outcomes; in fact, they often materialised and manifested in work performance.
These days, from a coaching perspective, I work almost exclusively with senior executives and utilise the latest technology available in performance, health and body composition monitoring. This gives me a great deal of data as output, which can be leveraged to influence the health and performance of these executives, but also to also continue spotting patterns across the bigger picture.

How comprehensive is your wellness programme?

In Corporate Wellness Blog by tailoredfit

Successful wellness programmes usually have a couple of things in common. Firstly, they have specific outcome goals; they have been designed to tackle specific health and wellbeing issues that companies are facing. Without this direction, wellness programmes end up being, at best, a nice perk.

The second thing successful programmes have in common is that they have specific programme targets. These targets are the markers of how well the programme is being utilised. They guide the process of iteration when adjusting a programme to hit the outcome goals. If a programme is not having the desired effect and yet your programme targets have been met, it may well be an indicator that your programme needs to be more comprehensive.

Lessons learnt from the lifestyle of a Senior Executive

In Corporate Wellness Blog by tailoredfit

Most of us know that our lifestyle, fitness levels and mental well-being affect our work and performance; but this often fails to affect our habits and behaviours. Many of the executives we see and work with know what to do; they just don’t do it. Ironically it is often “work” which is cited as the reason why these key areas of their health get neglected, even though this neglect subsequently leads to reduced performance at work. Breaking the cycle is key!
