HOT INNOVATION AREA: HEALTH & WELLBEING
In 2014, Youi established a YourLife health and wellbeing program to promote work-life balance. In 2016, the team decided to take the program to the next level by shifting the focus to curing inactivity within the organisation, in the hopes of achieving 100% engagement for the program by the end of the year. The team found the goal both terrifying and exhilarating, given that the company had over 1,700 employees across three countries. Inspired by The Global Goals, the head of each department became an ambassador and made a commitment to at least one of YourLife’s eight health and wellbeing targets (eg eat healthier, exercise regularly), and staff followed soon after. The departments then began arranging walking meetings, team PT sessions, meditation and sporting events, all to sustain the goal of curing inactivity.
Youi managed to hit the following numbers in 2016:
3,660 number of different YourLife activities provided
20,646 individual participations in activities
100% of staff participated by September
11.07 average number of activity participations per person
