Workplace Wellness

Together Sarah Donaldson and Sarah Percy bring their TEA philosophy (Think, Eat, Act) and health profession backgrounds to workplaces to significantly improve employees’ health and wellbeing.

The TEA team can provide expert advice and training that ensures your team have the opportunity to be more engaged and perform effectively.

A recent survey* showed that New Zealand lost $1.51 billion dollars due to absence, despite 46% of employees showing up to work despite being sick. The survey also showed a dramatic increase in stress of nearly 23% across businesses.

These are some scary statistics proving that New Zealand needs to do more to support its employees – not only as a legal requirement, but as a practical business decision as well. Healthier staff means healthier performance and capability. How do you think your business rates? How are you feeling?

Benefits to employees and employers of improved health and wellbeing are well known.

For your employee:

  • Improved health and wellbeing
  • Less sickness

Staff Training

TEA can provide Health and Wellbeing training to your staff, either on site or at an off-site venue. From one hour workshops to full training days covering a wide range of topics and teaching styles, we can educate, support and provide practical solutions to enhancing the health of your staff.

One hour workshop – if you’re short on time or want a taste of what we offer, an on-site TEA workshop for your team can start the health journey. Staff will learn the what, why and how of a health topic as well as take away practical tools for sustained change.

Half day training – if you’re keen to delve deeper into enhancing the wellbeing for your staff but can’t commit to a whole days training, the half day option is a great choice. Your staff can enjoy 2 health workshops, a team facilitated session and your choice of an exercise activity or wholefoods cooking demonstration.

Full day training – when you value your staff’s wellbeing and want to arm them with a range of skills and education to protect and enhance their health, our full day training will deliver. With 3 health workshops, an extended team session to integrate change into the workplace, exercise activity, wholefoods cooking demonstration, stress reduction activity and time for reflection over the day, this is the big kahuna!

Resilience Optimiser – our bespoke health and wellbeing questionnaire will provide a detailed snapshot of staff’s current health and functioning. There is also an opportunity to screen for staff showing signs of psychological distress with follow up psychological consultation available. With a report back to management covering general themes and staff receiving a report outlining suggested health changes, this is a great addon to any of our training packages.

Themes that can be included in your programme:

  • Wellbeing and resiliency
  • Healthy thinking
  • Eat smart,work smart
  • Master theart of sleeping
  • Managing stress during busy times
  • Practical nutrition for life
