Happier workers create better outcomes
Our data analysis tools and unique expertise in worker psychology help you target resources effectively towards achieving your goals – from attracting talent and promoting wellbeing, to reducing churn and legacy costs, and increasing productivity.
How we help
We deliver rapid, data-driven solutions for better building sites in three simple steps:
1. We collect sentiment data that's otherwise hard to collect
Using best-practice methodologies that are anonymous and secure, we gather data from your whole workforce, including temps and agency workers.
2. Identify opportunities for impact, helping you make change that lasts
We give you data-driven insights and quick wins with fast turnaround, and provide evidence-based strategies for continuous improvement.
3. Measure your impact, driving long-term optimisation
To maximise the value of your initiatives, we gather additional data to measure the impact that solutions have had on-site – closing the loop between workers and contractors.

Why worker wellbeing matters now
Skilled worker shortage
The skilled worker shortage is increasing costs (recruitment, wages) and eroding profits.
Construction job vacancies in 2021 were at their highest level since records began (ONS).
Rising costs are hurting contractors after the lowest recorded first-half profits in 5 years (EY).
Mental health crisis
Construction workers have the highest suicide rate of any profession, with low-skilled workers at highest risk.
13 times as many construction workers die by suicide every year than by workplace accidents.
This makes mental health one of the most important Health & Safety issues for the industry.
Wellbeing = productivity
Workers with mental health issues have more absences, are more likely to leave jobs, and are less productive.
Studies have also proven a causal link between increased wellbeing and increased productivity.
By taking action to understand and promote worker wellbeing, you can impact bottom line on site.
Today's workers have more job choice than ever before, and more ways to measure what good work looks like.
