The WELLBUSINESS™ accreditation is a 21st century certification that demonstrates that your organisation has a sustainable performance culture. In simple terms your culture excites and motivates shareholders, regulators, clients, employees and the community. Our methodology assures it takes Leadership and Employee perspectives into consideration.
When developing our methodology we looked for something simple yet robust. We took inspiration from the Japanese art of Ikebana, which has powerful simplicity yet makes a powerful and strong statement. We considered using auditors and yet, in this time pressed world we did not, to quote a global HR Director, wish to make you, “boil the ocean”.
Our 契約 Keiyaku Agreement Model therefore takes inspiration from the east and seeks a consensus, “agreement” from leadership and employees. We can’t think of better auditors than employees themselves. To make the accreditation robust we include an organisational 健康 Kenkō™ Self-Health Check that will assess the hard factors such as sound risk culture and structural elements.
The WELLBUSINESS™ accreditation works rather like the certification for your car. Fail on something core like the brakes and the car will fail. Fail on something more discretionary like tires and you will be given a period of time to rectify the issue.
WELLBUSINESS™ is overseen by an independent advisory board of global and diverse experts from Academia (UK/US/Europe) and Business Leaders from a variety of industries.
The accreditation validates a companies commitment to WOP's (WELLBUSINESS™ Organisation Practices) which affirm that they have acquired a certain standard.
The benefits of accreditation include:
Save costs through reduced turnover, presenteeism, absenteeism and by increasing productivity;
Engage your people through an ethical and sustainable culture;
