Sodexo developed Well Track, an innovative well-being solution for the oil & gas offshore industry. Through a comprehensive incentive-based programme, participants are constantly encouraged and rewarded for getting and staying in shape – at work and on leave, both physically and mentally.
Increasing employee performance while reducing costs
“The offshore wellness programme developed by Sodexo and University of Aberdeen, brings real advantage to companies, both in terms of employee performance and also in terms of reduced costs.” says Simon Seaton, Sodexo COO who oversees offshore Quality of Life Services in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.
Thanks to the programme, the overall "obese" and "overweight" levels at the start of the programme decrease at the end. Another key success factor is the overall positive impact it has on individuals’ healthy lifestyle adoption and quality of life.
- Male participants’ blood pressure dropped.
- Employees involvement in the program remained high at 65 percent.
- Anxiety level of participants decreased leading to better sleep
- Participants’ commitment to their company increased
During the pilot phase we were also able to track and measure the impact work/life initiatives had during home leave on the participants; we saw fitness initiatives and engagement in wellness activities increase with the intervention of the coach and home-based coaching.
A three-pronged approach for Wellness
Well Track includes individually tailored fitness programmes, motivation incentives, and virtual concierge services.
