Evidence-based workplace wellbeing programs to improve health & performance

Our Vision

ACT

Acceptance and Commitment Training

Acceptance and Commitment Training developed out of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which is a cognitive behavioural therapy. 

The ACT Model of Health and Performance

ACT utilises various mindfulness and values-based strategies to help improve psychological health and performance in the workplace. The first workplace study was carried out in the UK almost 20 years ago, as a workplace stress intervention (Bond & Bunce, 2000). Research has now established that ACT Training improves psychological well-being and performance whilst helping to prevent stress, burnout and issues such as absenteeism.

What's different about ACT?

ACT  focuses on enhancing the psychological and behavioural resources of individual workers by developing a skill called psychological flexibility.

Psychological Flexibility

Psychological Flexibility refers to an ability to adapt to situations with awareness, openness and focus and to take actions guided by values (Harris, 2008). This is an important and measurable psychological skill that has led to clinically significant improvements in staff well-being. 

Workplace Research

  • Higher well being and better performance for financial services call centre workers (Bond & Bunce, 2003)
  • Increased task learning & enhanced benefits from higher job control of call centre workers (Bond & Flaxman, 2006)
  • Greater overall life satisfaction for nurses, physiotherapists and physicians (McCracken & Young, 2008)
  • Enhanced Transformational Leadership skills for financial traders in investment banking (Bond, 2012)
  • Reduced the impact of emotional exhaustion and burnout for service workers in health, education, government and leisure sectors (Biron & Veldhoven, 2012)
  • Reduced levels of emotional exhaustion and burnout for government workers (Lloyd, Bond & Flaxman, 2013)
  • Clinically significant improvements in psychological wellbeing among health care workers (Waters, Frude, Flaxman, Boyd, 2017)

Training and Coaching

Evidence-Based

 

We apply a preventative, evidence-based approach to improving employee well-being and performance.


 Our workshops are designed to enhance the psychological & behavioural resources of individuals by developing a skill called psychological flexibility.


In developing psychological flexibility, employees learn to make their values a more prominent guide to behaviour, even in the presence of difficult thoughts and emotions that can arise daily. 


Research has established that taking mindful and committed action in accordance with these self-chosen values helps individuals to remain resilient and improve effectiveness.
