As a leader, the wellbeing of my team has always been of paramount importance and a focus on their wellbeing has always increased engagement, productivity and helped create a highly functioning team. The situation we are now in has reenforced this. By working with Kalmaer, my leadership team and I have been able to ensure that the wellbeing of our team has been our number one priority over recent months and we have seen the benefits of this focus.

“The Kalmaer team have just completed a Culture Internal Audit at Vistry Group where his team at Kalmaer undertook an in-depth assessment of all
aspects of the employee mood and assessed how galvanised and on-message we are as a business. A very challenging review, particularly against the
current backdrop, but one which is creating a lot of constructive discussion at our exec board. This review not only provides valuable insights, but helps comply with some of the more recent disclosure requirements (e.g. S172) and some of the criticism being aimed at big listed companies.”

“Healthcare at Home wanted to understand the implications of the pandemic on our people and our working practices. The team at Kalmaer worked with us to understand how we were altering our working practices and most importantly what we should adopt, adapt or reverse away from going forward. We provided
access to our policies, procedures and working practices; they engaged in interviews across the UK to really understand our working environment and
how our teams operate. The team used the Kalmaer Resilience Framework to provide an understanding of our current state and recommendations on how to
move forward by design”
