Collaborative Academic and Scientific Methodology

At The VIWELL Institute, our methodology thrives on robust collaboration with seasoned health researchers, as well as behavioural and social scientists.

By harnessing insights from primary research, we effectively translate wellbeing discoveries into actionable strategies. Our primary focus is on cultivating research that supports a meaningful wellbeing journey across the six wellness pillars.

The Outcome

Additionally, the outcome of our wellbeing research serves as a valuable tool for organisations, enabling them to assess their working environments and implement necessary adjustments. Through this process, we aim to contribute to a broader vision of individuals living in balance, attaining equilibrium not only within the workplace but also in their overall lives. Our overarching goal is to foster an environment where everyone can thrive in a state of harmonious wellbeing.

Our Approach

Our research is intended for empowering individuals to make informed lifestyle choices. We employ the Oxford Health Alliance model to evaluate the impact of lifestyle-related risks. Inspired by the collaborative efforts of public health professionals, researchers, academics, and corporations within the Oxford Health Alliance, this Institute aspires to address the global chronic disease epidemic by influencing behaviour across all societal levels. Through the application of this model in our research frameworks, our goal is to bring about substantial and measurable changes in lifestyle choices, thereby reducing instances of chronic illness and enhancing overall health.
