What is wellbeing?

Wellbeing is the state of being comfortable, healthy and happy in ourselves and our bodies. Quite literally, it’s simply ‘being well’. While many of us are fortunate enough to be confident in what we need to do to maintain our wellbeing, some find it challenging.

This can occur in both our personal and professional lives, where we might face situations that lead us to forget to prioritise our wellbeing.

It’s no wonder — our ways of working have changed, and some may be finding these changes difficult or be concerned about any number of factors unique to them. It can be tricky to identify what’s impacting your wellbeing and therefore tricky to make those changes and access the appropriate support.

How does it work?

During the session, one of our expert coaches will consider all aspects of your wellbeing — mental, physical and social — and provide a report with recommendations to help you get connected with the right tools and resources to help improve and maintain your wellbeing.

Overall, the Wellbeing Check can proactively support your wellbeing so you can thrive in the workplace and at home.

If you are covered by your employer’s Unum Group Income Protection Insurance, you can request a Wellbeing check for yourself — but first it’s important to know if this is the right option to provide the support you need.

Is a Wellbeing Check right for me?

Wellbeing Checks are for employees who are:

  • Still working (if you’re off sick, please speak with your employer about our absence management or rehabilitation services)
  • Living with a long-term condition but not struggling with that condition at the time (support for long-term conditions is available from Unum via your employer)
  • Seeing a noticeable change to your wellbeing
  • Feel like you are facing too many recommendations on how to improve your wellbeing and ‘feel your best’, but aren’t sure where to turn

If you answered yes to all of these, a Wellbeing Check may be right for you. To get yours booked in, all we need is for you to click the link below. There you’ll find a referral and consent form; once you’ve filled it in, we’ll be in touch to book your Wellbeing Check with one of our in-house experts.

How our Wellbeing Checks help

Each of the employees in need we’ve provided Wellbeing Checks to over the years has had their own unique set of circumstances. That’s why we provide tailored support to each and every individual who needs us.
