Gateway service 

1. Quantification: Assessment of the entire employee population using our scientifically proven wellbeing model

2. Understanding: The impact of individual wellbeing on the business and the mechanisms for change

3. Design change: Report highlighting challenge areas, linking them to business performance and recommending pathways and outcomes required to deliver positive change for all staff 

What do people say?

"Quantifying your employee's wellbeing is one thing but knowing the impact of that number on your business, is where the real insight is. Knowing how individual wellbeing impacts the ability to engage with work, the people and that task - enables you to translate a cost into a direct investment. 


Happier staff are more productive, we all know this, but being able to see it, understand it, change it and measure it is making a huge difference to our business - thank you Tasting Colours"


Mike Neale, Finance Director
