Wellbeing is integral to life at Drake – we help our staff thrive as well as our clients and customers. Wellbeing enables people to live their best lives at home and at work. In return employees are then capable of giving their best to their organisations, thereby improving overall productivity and achievement of goals.
“Drake International is committed to helping organisations and their people achieve their ambitions and flourish. Ambitions are best achieved when cultures are conducive to high performance. High performance can only be achieved when staff wellbeing levels are high and psychological safety prevails over the culture.” said a Drake spokesperson.
After many months of research, dedication and development, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of Drake WellbeingHub. Drake’s newest wellbeing brand offers holistic wellbeing products, services and initiatives designed to maximise achievement, while nurturing the individual. We meet employees where they’re at in their wellbeing journey and help them to achieve their ultimate wellbeing goals.
“Now more than ever, organisations need access to convenient and effective wellbeing resources for their employees to self-manage and prevent mental health problems. This need was most evident during the pandemic whilst employees worked from home and isolated from the community. At Drake WellbeingHub, we understand that our services have a better chance of positively impacting employees if they are clear, flexible and easy to access. The outcome of the new brand and re-structure is a more complete wellbeing offering that fulfills all health and wellbeing needs – ultimately to help people thrive.” says Kevin Vowles, Head of Clinical Services at Drake WellbeingHub.
Research shows that ignoring a problem has a far greater cost than the cost of developing and implementing strategies to create a safe and healthy workplace. Australian businesses lose over $6.5 billion each year by failing to provide early intervention for employees with mental health conditions. However, the solution is more complicated than just offering EAP counselling.
Research has shown that a holistic, tailored and preventative approach to mental health is ‘best practice’. This includes strategies for the physical, mental and social domains of an individual’s wellbeing. (Work Outcomes Research Cost Benefit Project MHCA). Likewise, numerous other studies have shown that organisations employing staff with high levels of wellbeing have higher presenteeism, lower levels of sick leave, lower levels of unwanted attrition, fewer industrial relations issues, higher levels of productivity and have less difficulty attracting quality staff.
Wellbeing is not about paying “lip service” to the term, it is about living and breathing the philosophy. Embedding the concept into organisational values, demonstrating commitment in behaviours, actively deploying programmes and regularly and consistently reinforcing, in a genuine and authentic way, that people matter, is at the heart of all employer-of-choice cultures.
We are thrilled to be one of the first to bring to market a holistic wellbeing offering that offers so much more than just EAP. In delivering a wide range of services designed to support individuals, teams and organisations, we’re able to fully commit and live by our motto “to help people thrive”.
