ENjoy positive advantage in business
with the science of positive psychology
Successful Humans is powered by evidence-based Positive Psychology - the science of optimal human functioning - committed to understanding & promoting human potential, and how we can use the abundant strengths we already possess to move from a life of functioning to flourishing.
the research is clear:
When you and your employees feel better, you function better.
We help organisations feel and function better with practical, effective wellbeing strategies to create a culture where wellbeing can flourish.
Wellbeing for organisations is:
1) An outcome (a vision for feeling & functioning at your best)
2) A set of practical, effective strategies (how you'll achieve the outcome)
3) A value (the cohesive culture driving the wellbeing vision & strategies).
Wellbeing is good for business
Organisations that commit to employee wellbeing as a core value "from the top"
are more effective, efficient, productive and profitable. They enjoy greater loyalty, lower churn, fewer days lost through illness, attract higher-calibre candidates
and are healthier, happier places to work.
(Gallup 2015, 2018)
The cost of poor mental health to UK business is over £45bn per year, split by:
Absenteeism (unable to work due to poor mental health): £6.8bn
Presenteeism (attending work when unwell): £29.3bn
Staff turnover resulting from poor mental health: £8.6bn
On average, every £1 invested in improving mental health within the workplace generates a return of £5.2, up to over £11.
Preventative investment is most effective - the higher upstream the investment (mental health monitoring & feedback, for example) the higher the return.
Conversely, investment in reactive treatments, such as therapy, has, on average, the lowest ROI, averaging £2.3 for every £1 invested.
Interventions that achieve higher returns tend to have the following characteristics:
They offer a large‑scale culture change and / or organisation‑wide initiatives supporting large numbers of employees.
They are focused on prevention or designed to build employee resilience.
They use technology or diagnostics to tailor support for those most at risk.

Proactive prevention, in every sense, is better than reaction. Promoting sustainable wellbeing at work is the smart choice for business.
