Organizations need to gather baseline information about the current state of their employees’ happiness, stress, burnout, engagement, and productivity levels. Also baseline info around management alignment to stated organizational values is important.
Organizations need to identify and gather baseline information about any other “measurables” which are important to the organization, such as sick time use, turnover rate, absenteeism, disability claims, health and safety compliance, harassment claims, grievances, conflict, revenue, profit, inventory management, etc.
Organizations also need baseline information about the current state of compliance to the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the Standard). An audit or assessment tool is helpful here.
Wellness Innovate works with your leadership team to purposefully design a healthy ecosystem, and the necessary policy and people infrastructure to support this sustainably.
Wellness Innovate works with leadership teams to implement this new ecosystem within the organization. Part of this is determining realistic timelines. Progress will not be quick, but each organization will advance at its own pace. Periodically check in on progress (6 months, 12 months, 18 months, and 24 months), and in time, organizational outcomes will begin to change, from tangible to intangible. Changed results will flow from the healthy ecosystem and culture that is being built to support organizational wellness and psychological safety.
In a typical organization, it is challenging enough to keep the “main thing” the “main thing”. Psychological health and safety is not necessarily an area of expertise for most organizations, and yet there is a tangible and intangible ROI when it comes to organizational wellness. It only pays the organization to invest in the wellness of its people, and it reminds us that people and employees always need to be a vital part of our “main thing”.
However, this investment must be thoughtful, intentional, and strategic. It must be based on research and best practices. Furthermore, it should be implemented in a way so as to ensure maximum engagement from the employees, and long-term sustainability in the organizational culture.

Essentially a Value Proposition looks at the pains your potential customer is experiencing, and how you can solve them, and also the gains they will receive as a result of using your product or service. The “Pain” that Wellness Innovate is seeking to solve is helping employers create psychologically safe workplaces, particularly as the data makes the case clear that this pain is costing employers cold, hard cash.
The “Gain” we are offering is that by solving this pain, employers will have employees who are more engaged, more productive, add more value, and cost less in terms of turnover, absenteeism, and disability costs. Not only that, but the entire workplace will be healthier and even happier because management cares. How we accomplish this is primarily 3 things: 1) diagnosing, 2) designing, and 3) delivering.
When it comes to organizations and wellness, measuring sticks are critical. Tracking progress is part of accountability, and part of responsible stewardship as organizational leaders.
In summary, we empower organizations to create psychologically safe environments through assessment, awareness, and empowerment. We also resist tokenism, and have often seen in-house solutions that fall short in creating a healthy workplace. Wellness Innovate is interested in creating workplaces where employee wellness is essential to the culture. We believe cultural transformation occurs with the right mixture of research and analysis, change management, training, and coaching.
