Taking care of the carers
Since 1975 Les Amis’ staff have dedicated themselves to improving the lives of those who need it most, enabling people with learning disabilities to reach their full potential and shine. Now Soulgenic are offering the staff of Les Amis a chance to feel rewarded and at their very best with free access to their fitness and wellbeing app. With online nutrition advice, meditation, yoga and fitness classes, Soulgenic make it much easier for the carers at Les Amis to find much needed time to focus on their health and wellbeing.

Providing the quality of support Les Amis is renowned for is often as physically demanding and mentally challenging as it is rewarding. Finding time in their busy days to look after themselves can be difficult for the carers of Les Amis, which is why they welcomed the opportunity to partner with locally based, workplace and wellbeing solution – Soulgenic. 

Soulgenic’s app is designed to get team members hooked on health. The web app will digitally deliver Les Amis’ team fitness workouts, nutrition advice and mindfulness guidance each day to help them make wellness a part of their daily routine. 

Soulgenic founder Glenda Rivoallan thinks the web app is perfect for the busy schedules of the Les Amis team,

“Les Amis’ team are so busy looking after people, that they often forget to look after themselves. Soulgenic’s activities are varied, challenging and can all be completed in under 30 minutes, helping the Les Amis team take their wellness into their own hands.” 

Improving staff wellness has been proven to enhance staff productivity with a recent study* demonstrating that 66% of businesses with a wellness programme reported a significant increase in productivity. Les Amis CEO Shaun Findlay hopes the partnership will have a similar effect for the level of care his team can provide.

“Our staff already do an absolutely incredible job looking after our residents but there’s no denying it can be a challenging job. Our focus is to put our team members in the best physical and mental condition to do their job to the best of their ability. Soulgenic will not only benefit them, but it’ll benefit our residents too!”

Les Amis look to offer their staff the best possible benefits as part of their employment, which includes a generous pension scheme and a discounts package across a range of local businesses and restaurants. They also support their staff by covering the cost of an intense training programme upon commencement with the charity, as well as any further qualifications staff wish to gain in care. 

Shaun Findlay said,

 “We are fortunate that many businesses such as Soulgenic see the importance of the work we do and in their own way want to support and reward our staff for their efforts. Whilst we currently have discounts in place at sport facilities I think access to Soulgenic’s new technology will make keeping fit and healthy so much easier for all our team. We are very thankful to Glenda and her team for this opportunity.”
