The biggest mistake that business owners can make today is undermining the value of their employees’ well-being. While it has always been a key element contributing to organizations’ overall growth, it has become necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic. And the reason for this is known to every individual working from home in the past few months. The same environment, social distancing norms, inability to interact with others and no work-life balance can affect the workforce’s morale in work from home setup. Hence, even now, when employees aren’t physically attending office, organizations need to have employee engagement programs in place that can keep them engaged and motivated to perform well. Dublin-based Zevo Health focuses on just that. Emphasizing the value of the workforce’s physical and mental health, the company supports its clients to maintain a progressive and productive work environment. It also helps employees to stay connected with their organizations and other team members even while working remotely.
The company offers a portfolio of corporate well-being programs and technology that help create an environment where employees can thrive. The team at Zevo Health works with the vision of introducing positive changes at both individual and organizational levels. “We look at areas such as stress, resilience & physical activity levels within the workplace which are a big concern at the moment along with factors such as job satisfaction and cultural elements,” claims Richard Murphy, and the founder and CEO at Zevo Health. As soon as the firm onboards a new client, it identifies these predefined elements for two to three months and presents the factors identified during that phase to the client’s management. The Zevo Health team then implements the well-being program leveraging the Zevo Health technology along with customized training programs which is designed by a team of in-house health experts considering exercise, nutrition, and mental wellbeing as the key focus areas.

We calculate a well-being score for both the organization and the individual on which a customized program is then recommended. “We would give them recommendations and then look at the metrics over a certain period that we can then report on a quarterly basis.
The company also offers Zevo Connect, an employee engagement platform that provides real-time data to help clients understand their overall health. The platform allows businesses to conduct anonymous surveys to obtain accurate data from their employees. Further, to help its customers make use of that data and take appropriate steps to ensure that their employees are engaged and motivated, Zevo Health conducts sleep management, nutrition, and leadership training.

Zevo Health takes a collaborative approach while delivering these solutions. “It’s more of a journey for us. We continue to be innovative and even have an in-house team of health experts, which is unusual for a company like ours,” says Murphy. Over the years, Zevo Health has worked with clients across several countries and has localized programs for many nationalities. The company has developed multi-cultural teams and worked with large global clients in the UK, Ireland, San Francisco and Montreal among other locations. In the future, Zevo Health seeks to expand its Global operations while continuing to have a major focus on developing positive behaviour change within employees while ensuring each client reaches gold standard in their workplace wellbeing programs.
