An employee wellbeing platform has expanded into the UK.
Wellbees, based in Turkey, has developed a web platform and app which it describes as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for improving employee wellness.
Supporting seven languages, the HR solution covers mental, physical, spiritual, social, environmental, occupational, intellectual and financial wellness. It aims to change behaviour through expert support, seminars, challenges, content and activities customised specifically for each company.
It can integrate with data from Apple Health, Huawei Health, Google Fit and the Apple Watch; uses AI to check sentiment; and derives data from comments and likes.
Launched in 2020, it already has around 40 clients on its platform including international companies such as DHL, Vodafone, Unilever, Sanofi, Pfizer and Allianz Partners.
To assist with its UK expansion, Wellbees has appointed Lauren Ashcroft, who has extensive experience working across business development in both SaaS companies and within the coaching industry.
Ashcroft is the founder of UltimateYou, a company focused on providing products to help professionals to reach their biggest goals.
“Having previously worked for an entrepreneurial company early in my career, I relish the opportunity to help Wellbees establish itself in the UK,” she said.
“We both share the same passion for wellbeing and I know the UK will be receptive to the Wellbees platform.”
Founder Melis Abacıoğlu (pictured) added: “Employee wellbeing is well on its way to becoming a C-Suite priority in the UK – yet HR professionals need a whole team on their own to tackle this issue effectively, with scientific consultants to measure the impact and experts helping employees stay on track with content.”
