Thrive - definition according to the Collins dictionary

1. verb - If someone or something thrives, they do well and are successful, healthy, or strong.

2. verb - If you say that someone thrives on a particular situation, you mean that they enjoy it or that they can deal with it very well, especially when other people find it unpleasant or difficult.

As humans we tend to do less than we can until it becomes critical. It’s paramount that we have somebody to motivate us and hold us accountable, but also that we train our mind and command our body to work for us and in our favor, so we can perform at our best even in the most extreme conditions. Only then can we shatter glass ceilings, bust though hindering blocks and over turn long standing limitations; only then can we begin to thrive and reach our peak potential, and when we thrive, so does everything around us - Maria K

Let the numbers do the talking!

Better mental health support in the workplace can save UK businesses up to £8 billion per year

According to an economic model, in a company of 500 employees where two thirds are offered and accept the treatment, an investment of £20,676 will result in a net profit of approximately £83,278 over a two year period.

For a company with 500 employees, where all employees undergo the intervention, it is estimated that an initial investment of £40,000 will result in a net return of £347,722 in savings, mainly due to reduced presenteeism (lost productivity that occurs due to an employee working while ill) and absenteeism (missing work due to ill health).
