A DIGITAL TOOL FOR THE FUTURE OF WORK

Helping build healthy habits

The past few years have made it very clear, that the Future of Work is Hybrid, which has led to organizations adapting to new ways of working.

We are however still seeing that most teams are struggling to adapt their routines and structures to this, in a way that is engaging and energizing - this is what we are trying to fix.

Pleaz enables colleagues to have social interactions during a busy working day, and makes it easy for teams to succeed in two things:

1) scheduling a daily break with your colleagues and 2) implementing energizers in existing, recurring meetings.

Removing the guesswork from investing in HR tools

Investments in HR- and Wellbeing tools often struggle to prove return on investment because the usage is hard to track and at questionable levels. 

With Pleaz, you can access live data to track usage and engagement over time.

As an extra support, your Pleaz consultant can also provide you with more insights to help improve the usage, and share best practices to make the biggest possible impact.

Pleaz advisors
END-TO-END IMPLEMENTATION SUPPORT

Our methodology

Sadly, most wellbeing initiatives and tools go unused. Working with Pleaz is a partnership and your assigned Wellbeing Advisor is an extension to your team, who supports you the entire way - also after the onboarding.

We know how important it is to understand your organisation and your culture in order to make this partnership a success. Therefore, we do not work with one-size-fits-all in our implementation but design it based on your inputs and our experience from working with other customers.

In our methodology, the first three months are crucial as we need to test and adjust to find just the right fit for your organization and team. That is why we have our four-step onboarding process.

 

  • Our ABC of onboarding

  • Stakeholder management

  • Monthly initiatives

Securing a structured onboarding and end-to-end implementation support

A. Handoff meeting (25 mins)

In this meeting, the people, who has been involved in the sales process meets with the people, who will be working together to implement Pleaz.

The purpose of this meeting is for everyone to be aligned and for the Wellbeing Advisor to ask clarifying questions to the Project Lead to ease the planning of the implementation.

B. Kickoff meeting(s) (45-60 mins + coordination)

In this meeting, the Project Lead and the Wellbeing Advisor will plan the launch and settle for the Pleaz routine to be tested with the relevant colleagues. If more meetings are needed, these are included as well to ensure a good start with Pleaz.

C. Launch (25 mins)

This event is where the relevant employees will be introduced to Pleaz and try out 1-2 Pleazers. The launch will be tailored to your organization in terms of details and exercises to match the employee group. After the launch, the routine can be started, and the employees can start doing Pleazers together.

90-day evaluation

Now it’s time to test and make adjustments. The Pleaz routine should fit the work routines of the teams or departments involved to lower barriers and leverage habit stacking. This is where the partnership between the Project Lead, Pleaz Champions and the Wellbeing Advisor is crucial.

An on-going routine

The support does not end after 90 days. A good start is important and so is a continuous dialogue between the Project Lead and the Wellbeing Advisor to ensure alignment with your culture, organizational changes, process improvement and updates to offerings from Pleaz offerings.

Adressing the four key stakeholders 

The Pleaz Consultant

When you partner with Pleaz you do not just get access to a tool. Your Pleaz consultant has experience creating sustainable routines with different types of organizations and employees and will bring this knowledge into the partnership with you. It is important for us to understand your needs and your goals to design the implementation with you.

Your Pleaz consultant keeps an eye on data every week and will meet with you monthly to assess if and what changes need to be made. To keep the healthy routine more interesting, the Pleaz consultant will also share material for our wellbeing theme every month throughout our partnership. 

The Project Lead

The project lead is the strategic partner and owner of this initiative on your end and will work closely with the Pleaz consultant and other internal stakeholders to make Pleaz a success. The project lead will be responsible for:

  • ensuring the needed IT approvals
  • inviting colleagues to events (launch, webinars, etc.) 
  • inviting colleagues to Pleaz routines 
  • finding Pleaz Champions
  • sharing communication from Pleaz on internal channels
  • sharing feedback from employees with the Pleaz consultant.

The Pleaz Champions

Implementing Pleaz and building sustainable routines that will become part of a company's culture does not happen overnight - and it is definitely not a responsibility of the project lead alone; it is a shared responsibility. The more ambassadors you can find, the better. We call them Pleaz champions, but we know you might prefer to call them something else in your organization. 

Pleaz champions can be team leaders, HR, P&C, EHS professionals, or other employees involved in internal networks with a natural reach and social glue in the organization.  

The Pleaz consultant offers to meet with all champions to onboard them separately to Pleaz and how to build routines. 

The Management Group

If you are serious about making Pleaz a success and wellbeing at work is a priority, it is crucial that the management group actively supports the initiative. 

We strongly recommend that the management group:

  • joins Pleazers 
  • puts Pleazers on the agenda for all-hands meetings and company events 
  • talks positively about Pleaz 
  • openly support the initiative and employees spending time on joining Pleazers. 

The Pleaz consultant offers to onboard managers and team leaders to Pleaz and the routines as well.

Offering a holistic wellbeing initiative should be easy. Hence, we provide you with campaign material for you to share the theme of the month within your organization.

**A short, simple exercise that doesn’t require any preparation, special equipment, fitness clothes or a need to take a shower afterwards

How often should we do a Pleazer?

Studies show that for the best effect, Pleazer should be performed daily, during the work week. Or at least 2-3 times a week.

According to our research in collaboration with The University of Copenhagen, 4-5 pleasers a week for 3 months can increase: 

🌱  +10% to overall well-being at workplaces
🌱  +20% to mental well-being when doing Pleazers together 

The best thing is that you don’t need to remember about it because pleasers can be scheduled as an occurring event in your calendar so your team members can join from any location.

When is the best time to do a Pleazer?

Anytime you feel a need for it!  

At Pleaz we do it twice a day:

🌱  In the morning at 9:50 to help us start the working day with a fresh focus
🌱  
After lunch at 13.50, so we can remove the feeling of tiredness after eating and get energized instead and get up to speed with the tasks in the second half of the day.

How does Pleaz work for a hybrid or remote team?

Pleaz is designed to connect hybrid working teams together, so it can be used from any location.

This allows employees across locations to connect during a hybrid working day, and to get those important watercooler moments, that otherwise often gets lost when being away from the office.

How can Pleaz support social belonging?

The social aspect of Pleaz, is one of the main reasons why Pleaz works, and keeps working.  

Doing Pleazers together is a great way to build healthy work habits. Building habits is a process and when you share the responsibility of building the routine. 

While you’re having a lot of fun together your body delivers you all the happiness hormones needed to stay healthy. Normalising taking healthy breaks during the day contributes to more productivity and increased feelings of satisfaction
