In 2012, the UK Healthy Living team launched a pilot Energy and Resilience initiative aiming to help boost the levels of energy and bolster the resilience of 40 selected team leaders. The intervention included a two hour workshop where small teams reviewed their collective baseline measurements and collaborated to agree a set of five key actions to commit to in order to improve lifestyle behaviours. Following the workshop, a set of ‘nudge’ reminders were communicated to participants encouraging teams to stay on track and then three months later, the teams were reassessed to measure improvements and a follow up workshop ensued. Through a combination of objective and subjective measurement tools including a Heart Rate Variability Monitor, self assessment questionnaire and leader assessment the results showcased a ROI of £4.88:£1 in terms of improved performance.
In 2013, Healthy Living will be scaling the pilot to a programme to positively influence a larger audience.
