Ben launches well-being platform

To mark the beginning of World Well-being Week, automotive industry charity Ben has launched BenWell, its pioneering new well-being platform developed specifically for the automotive industry in partnership with Wellonomics.

Underpinning BenWell is an insight-led app and web portal which automotive businesses can use to take the emotional and physical temperature of their team, enabling companies to better support their employees with their wellbeing.

Each month, employees spend less than 10 minutes answering questions across six key personal well-being areas, and five management areas. Once completed, their personal dashboard gives a real-time view of their wellbeing and offers tailored support and guidance from experts in each area, accessed via mobile, tablet or desktop.

From an employer perspective, individual survey results are anonymised but, by tracking key well-being indicators via the dashboard, employers get a real time overview of how their employees are feeling about life at home and work, taking the guesswork out of well-being and enabling them to be proactive in their response.

If any potential well-being issues are identified, employers can create targeted solutions that address their people’s needs, building greater employee satisfaction, retention and productivity for the business.

Matt Wigginton, director of partnerships, engagement and income at Ben, said: “By partnering with data specialists Wellonomics, we have combined our unique insight into the automotive community with industry-leading technology to produce a platform that we truly believe will help to improve the well-being of the automotive family as a whole. We encourage employers to find out more about BenWell and explore the many ways it can help the people in your business who most need it.”

Glen Thurgood, CEO at Wellonomics shared: “It is a real honour to partner with Ben and the product of our successful collaboration is BenWell.  We are enormously excited as BenWell is officially launched today and sincerely look forward to being of service to all businesses and people within the automotive family.”
