The introduction of Covid restrictions, including on visitors to the Siemens Gamesa factory, meant Tommy and his team were unable to physically attend the site.
During lockdown, sessions continued to take place online, but the opportunity to provide a dedicated platform to continue and expand on the good work already carried out became clear.
Even as restrictions lifted, the uncertainty created by Covid-19 increased demand for a digital solution.
Tommy tasked us to come up with this solution.
His Coyle Health and Wellbeing programme is built on the pillars of “move well”, “eat well”, “think well” and “sleep well”. Unlike other health apps on the market, which focus on specific elements such as fitness, diet, or sleep patterns, Tommy needed to bring all four pillars of his programme together on one platform.
We worked collaboratively and fluidly with Tommy to deliver this and roll out the next phase of his project with Siemens Gamesa.
The app has enabled Tommy and his team to take their work with Siemens Gamesa to the next level, without being hindered by any pandemic-related restrictions.
Through the Coyle Health and Wellbeing App, staff can follow warm-up and workout plans, track their steps and other fitness goals, monitor their calorie intake, access positive mental health support and receive tips to improve their sleep.
It includes a health assessment feature, so users can check on their overall wellbeing based on the information they’ve inputted, or pulled in from other health apps. Users then receive guidance about what they need to do to feel better and be healthier, such as improve nutrition, exercise or change sleep patterns.
The app also allows the staff to set and share targets and performance data to encourage healthy competition across the factory.
It is now being rolled out across the site to help improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing of staff in all departments, ultimately leading to a more efficient and effective operation.
The app is designed primarily to improve the health and wellbeing of the individual but, by using it in a corporate setting, it will also help improve workplace performance. A healthy workforce is a productive workforce.
It has been developed specifically for Siemens Gamesa’s Hull factory, but can also be scaled up and adapted for other operations across the country, and the world, in the future.
