The Path to Sustainable Well-being through Research and Education
The Road to a Better World
Optimera was founded in order to transform the way in which we consider workplace health and well-being through research and education. Our mission is to design well-being strategies that empower and make a difference where it matters most. We do this by offering sustainable, science-based education to enhance well-being, performance and purpose.
Being a catalyst for positive change; we utilize our skills, interactions and partnerships to collaborate with like-minded individuals in order to find solutions which influence workplace wellness infrastructure and create progress with purpose. How do we achieve our impact? Quite simply, we share the knowledge of our network and our research with organisations that want to make a difference.
Why the Need to Change?
The way we live in the modern world makes it challenging to optimise our health and well-being; and even harder to tackle this at an organisational level. As a result we are seeing the risk of death for non-communicable diseases (NCDs) cardiovascular diseases, cancers, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes remain high. In addition, there is an epidemic of stress and burnout, with the global impact of mental health issues affecting a substantial amount of people.
