Why do our clients like working with us?

Everything starts with the client – we tailor our programmes to fit the needs, culture and everyday realities of your organisation.

This flexibility means that you avoid the pitfalls of conventional, off-the-shelf wellbeing at work initiatives.

And everything we do is backed by hard data and research, meaning we make an impact even when working with the most sceptical audiences.

We develop and deliver 100% fluff-free, science-backed wellbeing at work training.

Using the latest neuroscientific research, we create interactive, engaging and practical workshops that challenge preconceptions about wellbeing at work.

Our story

We set out in 2018 with the intention of taking new and compelling academic research about the science of wellbeing to broader audiences.

How we started

In 2017, Founders Rosa and James were in very different lines of work. Rosa started her career in the charity sector while James was working in the corporate world. But they were both noticing the same thing – wellbeing issues are an extremely common part of life but often very little is done to acknowledge and address them. Collectively they decided that it was time for this to change. This is where the Haptivate revolution began!

Our journey so far

In 3 short years, Haptivate has grown from delivering stress management workshops in the basement of a London homeless shelter to partnering with some of the world’s best-known organisations to improve wellbeing at work. Our international client list spans many different industries including technology, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, government and charity.

Up next...

We will expand our commitment to balancing purpose and profit by aiming to become the first registered BCorp organisation in the UK wellbeing at work sector in 2022, including a pledge to donate a portion of our revenues to charities that share our mission.
