Case Studies

Objectives:

Help deliver the company vision of ‘Be the Best Possible You’

Programme strategy:

Self-improvement and time management – giving the M2M Team more time to focus on themselves and their lives outside work

Execution:

5-month programme which encompassed a blend of one or two in-house workshops and blocks of 1-2-1s each week (covering all PUSH disciplines)

Results:

One of the key findings from the initial PUSH Wellbeing Audit indicated that the M2M Team were suffering from massive digital over-load with email communications running throughout the night and early morning. This was impacting hugely on the time they had to focus on themselves, overall stress levels and sleep patterns.

The M2M Leadership Team made the brave decision to instruct a digital watershed for all internal comms between 7pm-7am. In addition to the on-going PUSH programme, this has had an incredibly beneficial impact on the culture of M2M already.

The entire M2M Team have got behind the wellbeing programme, ensuring that we have helped improve energy levels, engagement as well as impacting overall office culture!

“We have worked with PUSH on a corporate wellness programme encompassing many areas of the PUSH offering.
We have been impressed with the passion and commitment of the whole team in delivering this for us. They are responsive and proactive to our needs and work to give us the highest quality of service.
Whilst we are still only part way through the programme, we are thrilled with the response internally and are looking forward to seeing how our relationship can evolve.”
Pippa Goodwin, Managing Partner, M2M

Objectives:

Help create a better work-life balance for the OMD Team

Programme strategy:

Greater wellbeing access will improve energy and productivity – meaning less hours in the office!

Execution:

4-month programme encompassing a blend of one or two in-house workshops and blocks of 1-2-1s each week (covering all PUSH disciplines)

Results:

The key word for our work with OMD has been ‘evolution’ – critically ensuring that we take our work into the world of our clients rather than expecting them to ‘come to us’. Changes have included updating our marketing strategy from email to being a regular fixture within OMD Shouts and weekly team meetings which has improved engagement; gamify-ing the challenges (in order to ensure better interaction with the teams) and changing the logistics of the sessions in order to better fit the OMD Team and boost their ‘renewal’: eg 30minute sessions at lunch time rather than 1hour after work.

All of these changes improved our engagement with the OMD Team which helped re-energise them and ensured that we got them into their highest performing zone – and out of the office on time!

“PUSH has really helped OMD UK improve work-life balance this year. We have held Resilience, Mindfulness, Nutrition and even high energy exercise classes to fulfil the needs of everyone working here.
The responses have been great with OMDers wanting to evolve the partnership with PUSH and get involved every step of the way. PUSH has been instrumental in moulding our wellbeing programme and I can’t wait to see what the team brings next.”
Nimisha Patel, People Manager, OMD UK

 

Objectives:

Help bring to life Maxus’s People and Culture programme: ‘Never Stand Still’

Programme strategy:

Maxus’s ‘Summer of Movement’ – improving office culture, work-life balance and energy levels!

Execution:

6 months of tailored exercise – including a bespoke PUSH Bootcamp and Mixed Netball League!

Results:

Whilst still in full-swing, the Maxus ‘Summer of Movement’ has already had a dramatic impact on Team Maxus with improvements already recorded in team happiness,energy, engagement and motivation levels.

The Bootcamp sessions have been planned at the beginning of the day, to help set the Team up for the day, whilst the Netball League runs in the evening to help get the Team out of the office and promote an improved work-life balance. Overall, it has already been remarked on how the sessions have ‘brought the team closer together’ and improved office culture!

“We have worked with Cate and PUSH for several months now and I can only say how thrilled I am with both the outcome of our partnership, but also the journey along the way. Cate has been brilliant at being agile (and patient) to our ever changing brief and pushing the boundaries to explore new areas for us. Cate brings expertise, great thinking and a massive dose of confidence in her and her teams abilities. I look forward to developing our relationship further as we learn more working together”
Stephanie Marks, Deputy MD, Maxus UK

Objective:

Help bring to life Twitter’s ‘Passions Points’ Strategy to key clients, around the area of wellbeing

Programme Strategy:

‘Live Well @ Lunch!’

Execution:

A week of engaging and interactive lunchtime workshops, dedicated to sharing each of the PUSH disciplines; boosting our audience’s knowledge and helping renew their energy levels for their afternoon of work!

Results:

PUSH created a truly unique B2B communication which, not only helped perfectly communicate Twitter’s proposition but also helped set them apart in the mind of their clients.This was reinforced when the MD of one of the media agencies where we had delivered our activity, got in touch with Twitter’s Head of Sales to thank them for the original, innovative, engaging and utterly ‘non-salesy’ activity they had run which genuinely helped their workforce!

“Thank you so much for today! The sessions that your team provided were both entertaining and educational and you were a great partner for our brand. We also loved the innovative follow-ups that you provided for our clients. The PUSH team were massively professional and we loved working with you!”
Kat Bednarczyk, Senior Business Marketing Manager, Twitter

Clients We Have Worked With Include

Here are some lovely things our clients have said about our work

“We have genuinely loved working with PUSH. The PUSH programme has had a massive impact with fun, good quality sessions which deliver at the highest level across the spectrum of Energy, Nutrition, Brain Training & Coaching.

The sessions have brought together individuals who would not interact on a day to day basis, fostering enhanced engagement and collaboration across the business. I have benefited professionally and privately and it’s really motivating to see the company investing in our mental and physical wellbeing.

As a result of the sessions I am more conscious of the food I buy, feel fitter, more centred and more present in my life and am reflecting on career opportunities.”
Sam Trump, Business Improvement and Critical Escalations, Senior Manager, Yahoo

 

“The PUSH Team not only helped us create a brilliant wellbeing and energy programme but, more importantly, energised all of those involved in very different ways – there was genuinely a real buzz around the office!

Our work together has got us starting to think that little bit differently; empowering each-other to understand how to live better whilst improving performance and enjoyment at work.

Cate and her Team were an utter pleasure to work with and we were really impressed with the quality of their work and their knowledge. They ensured that nothing was too much trouble throughout the entire process and made it incredibly easy to get to the right solution.”
Simon Daglish, Group Commercial Director, ITV Commercial

 

“‘Wellness’ as a topic is hot news right now.  But I’m not sure businesses are really harnessing their top talent and their need to be looked after at work. At Yahoo we have always been involved in improving staff morale and retention but we wanted to do more.

 We knew Cate from her days on the agency side, so she knows first hand of the pressures we all face. Long hours, stressful deadlines, constant performance evaluation and shifting priorities. Cate and her team came in to work with us and build a bespoke training plan specifically suited to us. We now have a programme in place at Yahoo of high intensity training, coaching, nutrition, meditation and yoga hat the team are absolutely loving.

It’s easy to say you believe or care about the culture of a business. But to invest in it shows you really care.”
Nigel Clarkson, MD and Country Commercial Director, Yahoo UK

 

“Thank you so much for today! The sessions that your team provided were both entertaining and educational and you were a great partner for our brand. We also loved the innovative follow-ups that you provided for our clients. The PUSH team were massively professional and we loved working with you!”
Kat Bednarczyk, Senior Business Marketing Manager, Twitter

 

“I had the pleasure of getting to know Cate and the lovely PUSH team over four action packed mornings at Maxus UK. ​​Astute and intuitive, Cate designed the perfect corporate wellness programme incorporating exercise, nutrition and mindfulness workshops. From day one it was clear the team had a genuine understanding of the pressures we are up against in the workplace. As a result each attendee left with an arsenal of practical skills they could fit in their day-to-day routine, not a set of ideals they could not relate to.

The PUSH team were informative and insightful but most of all they were an absolute pleasure to work with and get to know. Starting my morning with PUSH made each day that little bit brighter.”
Giuliana Coli, Strategist, Maxus Global

 

“PUSH makes you think about your daily lifestyle habits and choices, before helping you improve on them. Interactive sessions run by lovely, inspiring people result in better understanding and a more positive approach to how we work and play. Everyone needs a little PUSH once in a while…”
Barbara Feeney, Head of Trade Marketing, Metro

“Vizeum is a fast growing global communications network, attracting new clients through our innovative approach to media. Looking after our people is essential so that they can work creatively and with agility. Cate ran a session for us to help our new business community manage the intense pressures of a pitch and look after themselves and their teams. We also ran a seminar in Cannes with PUSH to support Creativity through Wellbeing. Both sessions were excellent and the feedback was very positive. Cate understands where we’re coming from and the challenges that agencies face. Her approach is both inspirational and practical.”
Jo Rigby, Head of New Business and Marketing, Vizeum

 

“Cate and the team are an absolute force of nature. Never before have I seen such energy, enthusiasm and sheer hard work. You can absolutely see that they love what they do and it totally shines through in everything that they offer. I asked Cate to come and speak at a trends session I organised for Time Inc. UK on health and she was the star of the show. She has such a refreshing outlook and lives her passion with such credibility that you cannot help but buy into her vision. She avoids preaching, and presents a realistic view of wellness which you really believe.

I would not hesitate to work with Cate and her team again and am hoping to do so in the near future. I would recommend Push Mind and Body to anyone who has even a modicum of interest in the world of wellness – get in there quick as there is only so much of Cate to go around!”
Lisa Batty, Head of Marketing, Time Inc
