Put wellbeing at the heart of good business

OUR STORY

The importance of workplace wellbeing, now, more than ever.

This led to lots of questions, lots of research and lots of cups of tea! Did businesses understand wellbeing and its impact? Which business areas were being affected? What makes up a ‘healthy and happy’ workforce? How does wellbeing impact a business’ ability to grow and ultimately the bottom line?
 
Once these questions had been addressed, the team started to think about how to influence wellbeing, and what could be done to help clients keep their organisation’s healthy and happy.
 
James Harrington, a British Philosopher, said “Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement”. Taking the same first step that psychologists take to interventions, the team set about researching and designing a platform that not only measures wellbeing, but also helps people to manage it. This is Anova.

In a world marked by significant shifts and unforeseen changes, the importance of prioritising workplace wellbeing and employee engagement has never been more apparent. There is a growing recognition that individual wellbeing, work-life balance, and personal satisfaction are essential elements of a thriving work environment. This is why Anova was created.

Anova’s story began in the office of a boutique change management company called Marbral Advisory.  As change management professionals, they were charged with delivering successful change but often this was hampered by individual, team, or organisational wellbeing issues. It was clear that change, be it transformational or otherwise, was failing because they were losing sight of the prime ingredient to its success - people.  Not only was the ability to change and growth stifled, but they were seeing increasing levels of mass disengagement, declining workforce mental and physical health, absenteeism and presenteeism, and declining resilience, productivity, and happiness.

OUR VALUES 04

Being meaningful with data

Context is hugely important for understanding data. It is also important for understanding people. We like to take the time to understand our clients and the context they are operating in, delivering solutions that make sense to them (and make sense of the data!)

OUR VALUES 02

Being positive and passionate

Taking a lead from positive psychology, our approach to problem solving or data analysis or general life reflections is to remember the positives. There is a lot to be gained from capitalising on strengths and a positive mindset can result in greater wellbeing and optimistic thinking, which is the way we like to operate. Passion for what we do also plays a huge part in our success. We are passionate about data and passionate about wellbeing.

Return objectives

In 2023, Deloitte's Well-Being at Work Survey* revealed persistently low employee wellbeing levels, with the majority reporting no improvement or a decline in their health over the past year.


The survey highlighted a disconnect between leaders' efforts to promote employee wellbeing and engagement, and the employees' perception of these initiatives. Furthermore, it revealed a broader shift in the concept of sustained wellbeing, which encompasses the long-term wellbeing of individuals, organisations, climate, and society, extending beyond current employees.

PwC* reported that employee concerns continue to revolve around factors such as purpose, company culture, and inclusion. In a survey of employees considering changing employers, only 47% find their jobs fulfilling, compared to 57% of those planning to stay. Furthermore, those inclined to change jobs are less likely, by eight percentage points, to feel that they can truly be themselves at work in comparison to their peers who intend to remain (51% vs. 59%).

Worldwide, workers are experiencing heightened financial strain due to a slowing economy and the persistent impact of inflation on their finances. 60% of full-time employees are currently experiencing financial stress, a level even higher than that observed during the peak of the pandemic. Notably, almost half (47%) of employees earning $100,000 or more annually also report financial stress.*
