Strategic Partnership for making proactive mental wellness accessible in New Zealand

In New Zealand, every year one in five will be diagnosed with a mental illness and many more will struggle without seeking help. Mental disorders are the third leading cause of health loss for New Zealanders. As recently discussed at the World Economic Forum by New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, this problem needs a more preventative approach.

Wellness Orbit is pleased to announce its new strategic partnership with Progress People Ltd, to deliver its world-class mental wellness e-trainings to workplaces in New Zealand.

This partnership enables to make the world’s first fully digital mental wellness gym more accessible in New Zealand.

Wellness Orbit is offering video-based e-trainings over the Internet which improves intrapersonal skills and empower employees to be more productive and engaged at work, with a focus on keeping all people in excellent mental shape. The e-trainings that focus upon mental fitness at work provide real skills and cater to different developmental needs for all employees regardless of differing geographic locations.

Wellness Orbit’s partnership with Progress People was developed through a mutual goal to drive real change in workplaces to prevent mental health problems escalating into disorders, to integrate wellbeing as a core leadership capability, and embed mental fitness in workplace culture. We see that we can reach a broader audience through this collaboration.

The benefits of bringing a proactive approach to New Zealand

Proactive mental wellness training in New Zealand is not only vital to helping employees sustain peak performance, but to helping reduce problems that may escalate to mental illness. Suicide rates in New Zealand have increased year upon year for the last four years, despite increasing media attention and campaigns to reduce stigma around mental illness.

By providing intrapersonal education for employees to enhance mental strength and develop inner resources we enable workplaces to make a positive contribution to the mental health of their people before mental health problems develop into mental illness. Typically, education in mental strength and intra-personal skills has not been provided in schools, homes, or communities. By making proactive mental wellness related education accessible we hope to see an increasing number of workplaces take more responsibility for this. 

Sustainable path to wellness and productivity

Well-being is on the radar of Boards and Executives. It is even sometimes written into policy and strategic planning but if organizations fail to provide their employees with solutions that are meaningful, easily accessible, and bring about sustained personal growth, they are simply paying lip service. And whilst we acknowledge the role that more typical workplace wellbeing initiatives focusing on the more physical aspects, we absolutely maintain that focusing on these alone is short sighted.

In this fast-paced digital age, we need to offer companies and organizations a more sustainable path to productivity, employee engagement, and individual mental fitness as we often use our heads as our main 'work asset'.
