why a holistic approach?

A holistic approach means taking care of something as a whole.

Our approach helps employees have holistic living. There are many components in employees' personal and working life that are interdependent and affect overall health and happiness.

The aim is the complete and vast understanding of employees' experiences at work, how those experiences impact their body, mind and spiritual well being, and detecting everything that disables them to use their full potential at work.

Our approach is not restricted to find out and fix only partial issues that sabotage employees' source of power; we guide employees to create and maintain a healthy and prosperous state of themselves.

 

APPROACHING PROBLEMS HOLISTICALLY

A holistic approach means thinking about the big picture, knowing that each change you make to one part affects the whole. Our holistic approach towards employees' well-being, refers to addressing the whole person, including their physical, mental, and emotional health while taking work factors into consideration.

     THE RIGHT MINDSET

    Mindset - what it is and why it matters? Mindset is a frame of mind we have towards people and situations, which has been built up through our experiences, education, and/or culture. A mindset is a way of thinking and feeling about ourselves, other people, surroundings, items, events, work, life, and world. Mindset defines our mental attitudes and set of opinions to guide us in how we handle situations and how we interact with other people. The MacroCognition senior scientist Gary Klein, Ph.D. (2016) says that the right mindsets will help us look at the opportunities, but the wrong ones will trap us in failures and self-defeating cycles. He calls mindsets as those beliefs that make a difference in our lives—the beliefs that distinguish people who are successful at what they do versus those who fail to perform well and progress.

    Mindsets are important because they determine our actions and behaviors, affect our perceptions, promote or inhibit our performance. At work, mindsets will shape the perceptions about the company culture, job responsibilities, trust and cooperation with colleagues, belonging to the work environment, self-importance and relevance of work outcomes, work-reward fairness, and balance between personal life and work life. A wrong mindset will inhibit a person's progress and work performance.

    Mindsets are created quickly but once set they are resistant to change. However, the Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck (2006) brings a very significant aspect of mindsets: once there are actions taken to transform a mindset, consequences can be very powerful. The new mindsets acquisition time-span is even shorter than new skills; mindsets show dramatic shifts if influences occur.

    Our approach of shifting the employees` mindsets from wrong or insufficient into right and uplifting, is an important step of boosting employees' relations with themselves and their work at a very deep level and with long-lasting effects. We aim to plant new healthy mindsets and guide how to make those become habitual. Shifting employees towards the right mindsets is a transformative experience with sustainable positive results; more powerful, satisfied, successful, and motivated employees.

     PREMIUM EXPERIENCE

    As companies grow and the challenges in the external environment become more complex, business processes, structures, and systems that once worked become barriers to efficiency, customer service, employee morale, and financial profitability. Organizations that don’t periodically renew themselves suffer from such symptoms as:

     

    • Redundancies in efforts (“we don’t have time to do things right, but do have time to do them over”)

    • Inefficient workflow with breakdowns and non-value-added steps

    • Fragmented work with little regard for good of the whole (Production ships bad parts to meet their quotas)

    • Lack of knowledge and focus on the customer

    • Silo mentality and turf battles

    • Lack of ownership (“It’s not my job”

    • Cover up and blame rather than identifying and solving the problem

    • Delays in decision-making

    • People don’t have information or authority to solve problems when and where they occur

    • Management, rather than the front line, is responsible for solving problems when things go wrong

    • It takes a long time to get something done

    • Systems are ill-defined or reinforce wrong behaviors

    • Mistrust between workers and management

     PREVENTATIVE WELLNESS

    The importance of preventative wellness is increasing tremendously as people realize that preserving good health is easier than suffering bad health conditions, which in many cases are irreversible. What Exactly is Preventative Wellness? Preventative wellness is a vital tool to manage your human assets, and yet many choose to be reactive instead. The burden of work-related negative effects on peoples’ health and life-quality is rapidly increasing worldwide. Preventing is better than correcting. Preventative actions refer to self-care or wellness actions that employees can integrate into their busy and stressful working life to prevent health problems from developing or worsening. They’re beneficial because they can help boost employee health outcomes and work efficacy requirements. Incorporating preventative actions in your employee lifestyle is a smart human assets management strategy; maintaining employees' well-being will assure a successful business in the long-term. 

    Our preventative wellness approach includes appropriate lifestyle changes with the goal of keeping people healthy while providing employees with knowledge and tools for a better quality of life and reducing potential human assets care costs to the companies. Preventive wellness strategies that we offer are about yoga, meditation, mudras, nutrition, burn-out awareness, stress-management, and several preventative habits; each strategy is designed to help your employees live a healthier, happier and fulfilled working life.

    For instance, merging research suggests that mind-body practices like yoga can be a powerful form of preventive medicine for conditions like obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and chronic back pain. Healthy preventative habits are a defense against many chronic illnesses and can result in a prolonged lifespan, according to the World Research Foundation. Preventative actions also impact the economic environment of health care, according to the World Research Foundation. Preventing serious illness can help individuals avoid financial loss or bankruptcy, and it can also contribute to an affordable health care system. As more employees practice preventative health habits, companies' costs related to sickness leaves are likely to reduce over time.
