The concept of Healthy Performance originated in 2001 when the company founder devised an employee wellbeing programme for his then employers. As a direct result, improvements were evident in motivation, reduced stress, increased energy and performance. Annual absence levels reduced from eighteen days to just one day for the whole customer service team and their performance went from multiple daily complaints to a global award winning team. The key driving force behind this success was the Employee Wellbeing Programme.
A few years later, in 2009, Healthy Performance was born.
In 2009, HP became a full time business with the founder making around 1,000 calls per month from his spare bedroom to find clients, with a 99.9% rejection rate!
