International SOS provided a comprehensive wellbeing programme solution for a large oil and gas organisation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our client’s mission was to make a positive contribution to their people’s health and wellbeing. They wanted to promote a healthy lifestyle so that their people could reach the highest attainable wellbeing and health standards. However, amidst a global pandemic, a creative way to engage their workforce and promote a healthy lifestyle was proving difficult.
Our medical director was on hand to develop a plan with our client’s senior occupational health and safety communication team. This plan involved building a strategic wellbeing programme that could work virtually during a global pandemic. Part of the programme consisted of a 'Digital Wellness Portal'. Employees can use it to complete lifestyle assessments, take part in fitness challenges and link their fitness devices. It also allows to socialise with colleagues and access a learning library.
The impact was very positive, as it helped engage employees and boosted their mental and physical wellbeing. This experience resulted in a 92% satisfaction rate with the efforts during the activities. 68% of participants perceived an improvement in health post challenge.
