"As health is not merely the absence of disease or infirmity but a positive state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, a healthy working environment is one in which there is not only an absence of harmful conditions but an abundance of health-promoting ones." World Health Organization (WHO)
Why is corporate wellbeing important?
Long working hours, lengthy commuting times and constant
multi-tasking is making it more difficult for your employees to
find the time to act on wellness in their daily lives.
Incorporating a wellness programme into your company culture
gives you, the employer, a real opportunity to meet the needs of
your most valued commodity. By defining the environment in which
your team works, you can help address issues such as presenteeism
and absenteeism, which not only build a negative environment, but,
in the long run, affect your bottom line.
Build a Wellness Culture
According to Ibec’s "Employee Absenteeism: A Guide to Managing Absence", 11 million days are lost through absenteeism every year in Ireland. This equates to a cost of €1.5 billion, or €818 per employee.
A culture of wellness actually helps combat these costs and helps drive business results by creating an engaged workforce.
Engaged teams have been shown to outperform competitors in categories such as productivity, profit, and employee retention. Not to mention creating an aspirational environment that future employees want to work in.
Get the Right Balance
The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental & social wellbeing”.
Using this holistic and balanced approach, Kerry Wellbeing provides a range of practical talks, workshops and classes addressing each of these pillars of health.
The techniques used are designed to improve overall wellbeing in the body, as well as improve the capacity of the mind to focus, be calm under pressure and therefore be more resilient and effective.
Educate. Motivate. Invigorate.
Working in close conjunction with your HR and/or Wellness Team, Kerry will tailor bespoke wellness programmes that provide participants with some practical tools to feel energised, relaxed and focused.
At the end of each session, your employees will not only gain a new and positive energy and perspective to their day, but will take away concrete tools to help them improve their overall resilience, and physical and mental health.
Sessions are suitable for any corporate environment with practical exercises designed for desk workers. Insights will be shared into the effectiveness of stress-reducing breathing techniques and simple mindfulness practices that can be used to address stress and the long-term effect it can have.
Sessions can include a combination of:
Team / Group Talks
(1:1 and group)
Available themes include:
Healthy Back (Desk Yoga)

Work Your Way Well with Kerry Wellbeing
Yoga Classes held at your workplace or online.
Yoga is an ideal practice to support the physical and mental health of people.
Kerry's Yoga classes are a good balance of both body strengthening and
muscle tension releasing work. Each class also incorporates mindfulness
meditation and yogic breathing techniques. The focus is on the mind as much as
body, which is key for improved focus, resilience and overall wellbeing.
The class also has the added benefit of some hands-on Shiatsu massage techniques - wonderful for helping ease tight back, neck and shoulder muscles.
Classes are suitable for all levels, including complete beginners.
Shiatsu is a Japanese bodywork/massage therapy which has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). It's a blend of ancient massage, manual acupressure, and modern Western techniques of joint mobilisation. Taking place on a futon or mat on the floor, a variety of techniques are used to ease areas of tension, combining pressure on specific acupressure points, gentle stretches and mobilisation techniques.
According to the philosophy of traditional Chinese medicine, our energy or “ki” circulates throughout invisible pathways known as meridiens. When imbalances occur in the flow of this energy - which often happens through illness, injury, stress, trauma, fatigue or poor lifestyle - our health and well-being may suffer. Shiatsu can help re-balance this energy. It can also be effective in maintaining overall health and well-being as it is thought to stimulate the body’s own healing natural healing system.
Shiatsu is comfortable, safe and without harmful side effects.
