Client Insights

Last year, we interviewed one of our esteemed wellbeing leaders, Sarah Van-Zoelen, Head of Occupational Health at Loughborough University, all about her work with Superwellness. Here are 3 key take aways from her interview.

The challenge is time

“So, when I joined, so I started at Loughborough not quite five years ago, and when I started there wasn’t really a wellbeing function for staff. We are a higher education institute, offering for students is spectacular but for me it’s about levelling that kind of weighted approach that actually if you don’t look after your staff, you’ve got nothing to offer your students.

As an employer, one of our big challenges is time, everybody loves to be busy, busy it seems to be a defining characteristic these days and fitting in wellbeing is tricky but for an organisation this size and with this diversity, communication to everybody is an ongoing challenge in getting that message across, which is why we try many various different options available to just try and share that message all of the time. It’s an ongoing challenge. I don’t think I’ll be out of a job just yet.“

Large-Scale inclusive support

“We’ve got our Wellbeing Champions and every month we upload the different resources from SuperWellness, which is amazing. We really focus on the fact that because Loughborough is such a complex and huge organisation, every area manages things differently. Some people love printing it off and shoving posters up on the wall because that’s what they’ve got access to.

Other areas like are all very laptop based and need access to email functions and you know other areas have don’t have either particularly and use it as part of that team leader updates for that for their group. So again, the thing for us is the diversity that just allows people to communicate with our teams very specifically because they’re all so different.”


Empowerment, for me that’s massively key in how SuperWellness has helped in my role. I don’t think anybody’s set out to be unwell, feel rubbish, not know how to manage health conditions, not know what to do for the best.

You’ve got loads of influencers here, there and everywhere selling all sorts of crazy stuff and I think getting a consistent message out there is really important and to show how that consistent message can help people on their health journey and by making small changes tends to mean people commit to it better and can see that development and start to feel better amongst themselves and all you want for people is to feel empowered and well, because if you’ve got a happy workforce, you’re on a winner.”

Managing Menopause in the Workplace

If you’re currently working towards becoming a menopause-friendly workplace, you will know that there are many different aspects to think about. A single webinar or training session probably won’t be enough to create the shift you need. It’s a process that requires planning, training at manager level, and practical, relevant support offered to those actually experiencing menopause.

As workplace wellbeing experts, we’re thrilled to offer a range of support to organisations on their journey to becoming menopause-friendly workplaces. Our comprehensive menopause package incorporates five different elements of essential content for your whole organisation.

The package includes a 30-minute strategy support discussion with our workplace wellbeing strategy consultant. This opportunity can be utilised for advice on creating your strategy, building a menopause awareness action plan, or other key strategic support.

Also included is our two-hour CPD accredited management training, designed to improve awareness and understanding of the complexities of menopause and its implications. This session also provides leaders with practical and effective ways to fully support their teams.

We’re delighted to also be able to incorporate two webinars designed to target those directly impacted by menopause. Between them, these workshops cover the spectrum of menopause from peri to post!

Our understanding and embracing the menopause session shines the spotlight on early menopause symptoms. Known as the peri-menopause, it’s a time of hugely fluctuating hormones impacting sleep, mood, brain health, and much more. Our post-menopause session focuses on the mental and physical impact of reaching menopause, when the ovaries finally stop producing estrogen or progesterone and menses cease.

Here we focus on the impact this has on an increased risk of health conditions such as osteoporosis and heart disease and how HRT might help. Of course, in both workshops, we highlight key nutrition and lifestyle advice.

The final element is our comprehensive content pack. This fabulous toolkit contains additional resources to enable active continued support within the workplace through posters, recipes, toolbox talks, and signposting.

This comprehensive and inspiring menopause package ensures you can offer something to everyone and provides you with a joined-up approach as part of your journey to becoming a menopause-friendly workplace, from planning and management training to providing practical, relevant support to those experiencing menopause.
