Employers are facing a big problem right now. Mental health issues are on the rise and budgets are tighter than they've been in a long time. How can we navigate this situation? How can we create or improve a wellness culture within a place of work on a shoestring budget? The Wellness at work podcast is brought to you by Amiqus, hosted by Lisa Mahoney. Amiqus is but a wee Scottish tech for good company, driven by its values of trust, accessibility and privacy. But this podcast isn't about our tech product or what we do day to day. It's about the culture that we've worked hard to create which really has employee wellbeing at the very heart of it. Utilising what we've learned over the years and some very knowledgeable friends and contacts, we bring you this podcast to help you navigate wellness in your organisation during a very challenging time. Hosted by our very own wellness lead, Lisa Mahoney, we cover all aspects of wellbeing, including loneliness, gratitude, finance, nutrition, mental health first aid, trust and trauma. All episodes are recorded over Zoom and from home, so you can expect some imperfect sound quality, unstable connections and interruptions from pets and children. None of which take away from the insight and advice provided by our brilliant guests. amiqus.co/wellness-at-work

    How to make wellbeing part of your company culture

    How to make wellbeing part of your company culture

    Your business doesn't have the money to spend on health insurance or gym memberships. So you've created a wellness policy, put it into a fancy document and shared it with staff. Your job here is done, right?

    Wrong. Wellbeing is not a tick-box exercise. Businesses need to find a way to make it part of their company culture and it doesn't have to cost the earth. In fact, it can end up saving them money in the long run.

    Lisa Mahoney speaks to Gavin Percy from Balancing Edges on:

    - How you can get started creating a wellbeing culture
    - How that will impact your bottom line
    - What Marks and Spencer's did to look after their people when they had minimal budget

    Helping your employees identify their mental health issues

    Helping your employees identify their mental health issues

    Mental health isn't just a measure of how stressed or anxious we are feeling. But it's not always easy to recognise that what we're experiencing. And it's even harder to know where to turn for help, particularly when NHS mental health services seem to be overwhelmed.

    With our work and home lives more blended than ever before, employers can and should take some responsibility for helping their people take the first step in taking better care of their mental health.

    Lisa Mahoney speaks to Verity Hart and Nicola Green from After the Storm on:


    Why we need better access to mental health servicesHow employers can help people take the first step to feeling betterWhy employers should open the door to difficult conversations

    Helping your employees feel confident in uncertain times

    Helping your employees feel confident in uncertain times

    No one on the planet can offer us certainty about what will or won't happen.

    That's always been the case, but right now it's at the forefront of everyone's minds. It's creating a lot of anxiety and reducing our levels of confidence.

    How can employers create a sense of safety, trust and confidence in the workplace when the world is sending a very different message?

    Lisa Mahoney speaks to Jessica Boston, an award-winning hypnotherapist on:


    Why we're all feeling so anxiousHow leaders can unintentionally make things worseWhat employers can do to create an environment that feels safe and build trust and confidence in their peopleListen to Jessica's album.

    A note from your host: Apologies for the sound quality of this episode, which isn't the best. It improves as the episode goes on and we thought it would be a shame to waste Jessica's fantastic insight.

    The ROI of healthier employee snacking

    The ROI of healthier employee snacking

    Gone are the days of employers being able to rely on the office fruit bowl to claim they’re looking after employee health. As lockdown hit and many of us started working from home, sneaking to the kitchen cupboard for a sugary biscuit or indulging in lunchtime takeaways were justified with thoughts of this is only temporary.

    But as time has gone on, it's become clear that we're in this for the long haul and our habits need to change.

    And this isn't just about our waistlines. Nutrition has a huge impact on our productivity and happiness.

    Snackcess have made it their mission to address this. Born out of lockdown and delivering healthy snack packages to employees on behalf of employers and educating people on how to form healthier habits and why it's important.

    Lisa Mahoney speaks to Sonny Drinkwater of Snackcess on:
