Yorkshire wellbeing platform receives new investment to expand platform after increase in enquiries
A Yorkshire wellbeing organisation has announced that it is expanding its platform after receiving both an increase in enquiries and a new investment.
Champion Health, based in Sheffield, is expanding its digital wellbeing platform after receiving new investment from global educational publisher Twinkl.
Launched by social entrepreneur Harry Bliss, Champion Health helps businesses optimise the health and wellbeing of staff by offering proactive health assessments, data-driven solutions and online mental health training.
The company has recently seen a surge in enquiries as businesses seek to do more to support the wellbeing of their employees during the pandemic.
Harry Bliss, founder of Champion Health, commented: “We have seen a significant increase in demand since the lockdown in the UK began. Employee wellbeing is now at the forefront of business leaders minds.
“There has definitely been a shift in attitude towards workplace health in the past 3 months and we can only see the need becoming greater. Due to home working, many employers are finding it difficult to spot the warning signs of employees struggling and may not be equipped with how they can support them.
“With our platform being digital, it has been ideal for organisations to launch whilst remote working is taking place. The platform enables businesses to build wellbeing strategies off the back of real data, which is essential for any organisation to perform at their peak
“We have found an increase in demand when compared to earlier this year, even after we finished the free mental health training offer”.
Jonathan Seaton, co-founder and CEO at Twinkl, added: “Champion Health was founded quite simply, to change and save lives. At Twinkl and TwinklHive, we are, and always will be, mission-driven and we put people at the core of what we do.
“We were absolutely delighted to be able to offer an investment opportunity to Harry and his team so that they can continue transforming how people view and support mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
“It is also wonderful to be using Champion Health to support our own team. We know just how impactful and insightful their services are, and look forward to helping our team and other businesses help theirs through the incredible services that Champion Health offers.”
