Case Studies & Testimonials

The Centre for Human Factors is working across a range of organisations to support the development of wellbeing provisions that address the root causes of stress.

 

Here, you can find out more about some of the work we’ve undertaken with our clients.

Working with the Centre for Human Factors provided the key evidence required. Working with the team showed the level of research that has gone into this and gave that credibility it needed. They were understanding and willing to make necessary adjustments to the scope of the project. Communication was clear throughout every step, a completely transparent process. I have never been part of a more positive project before.

Eddie NiblettICT Strategic Business Solutions Manager, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

Any organisation who is serious about investing in a way that genuinely addressed the Health and Wellbeing of their staff needs to understand where their gap are – not just where they think they are and this project helped us to do that. I would recommend the approach to others. Overall, a really positive experience working with an entirely professional and very organised team, couldn’t have asked for anymore. Highly recommend.

Clare BaggsHead of HR, Humberside Police

When public sector budgets are so tight, you must make really good use of the money you have. I really believe in the risk assessment approach, this work has been great. We worried about whether people would engage - but we achieved a 60% response rate in frontline services! This work is real Organisational Development, and will actually make a real tangible difference.

The experience of working with the Centre for Human Factors team has been extremely positive. They are lovely people to work with – supportive, engaging and clever! Thank you Fiona and team for your inspiration and support!

Jo ShoresOrganisational Development & Inclusion Manager, East Riding of Yorkshire Council

All organisations/councils should be doing this work and acting on it. This was a really collaborative project and positive experience, which I am glad to have been involved in. A very supportive process and strong communication with the Centre for Human Factors team, who were passionate and enthusiastic throughout.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you! For me one of the biggest struggles is not feeling like I have a voice and I feel like today you gave me that!

Thank you to you and your team for all the hard work and effort that you have put into this study and report. I am confident that this will be a real springboard to inform the refinement of our Wellbeing Strategy and activity going forward.
It is a great piece of work!

Clare BaggsHeads of HR, Humberside Police

It was really interesting to be part of the focus group. It felt like it was good for me to be able to ‘put’ ’stuff’ somewhere where it could be heard - so from my point of view it was helpful for me to have the opportunity!
