Design work in which you thrive
We bring a scientific results-driven approach to solve real-world problems.
We help organisations achieve award-winning work design.
We facilitate discovery, design, and realisation of new and improved work methods and systems. This includes products and environments.
What We Do
ViVA health at work helps organisations build good work design literacy, capability, and capacity. We employ human-centred approaches to understand the nature of the work; the goals of the work system; the environment; its people; their jobs; and their equipment, tools, and supplies. Central to our work is detailed task and systems analysis. Our methods are grounded in human factors, ergonomics, and system resilience. We believe that good design can lead to great performance. The health, happiness, and engagement of workers is vital to productivity. Alignment with company values, such as design for sustainability, can shape the workforce strategy – who you attract and why they stay. A positive work climate fosters creativity and is a foundation for innovation. Good ergonomics means great economics too.
The physical capabilities of workers can be accommodated and optimised through effective work design. Participatory ergonomics, work and job design, and environmental design can ensure adequate physical engagement to the “just right” degree for ongoing health and conditioning.
A productive workplace relies on a positive climate and supportive culture. This is influenced by factors such as leadership strategy, management methods, the environment, technological support, job autonomy, independence, control, workload, job security, support, recognition, and reward.
Employee performance in the office is critical to how decisions are made and executed throughout the business. The health and productivity of the office worker is dependant upon physical, cognitive, psychosocial, environmental, and organisational factors. We specialise in micro- and macro-ergonomics for the office worker.
ViWell provides evidence-based strategies to boost employee health, wellness, and engagement through collaboration, co-design, and education. A well-designed and implemented plan can create a culture of fun, contribute to personal and company resilience, and prevent burn-out by addressing sedentary environments, fatigue, physical fitness, mental agility, and positive thinking.
We bring a scientific, results-driven approach to solve real-world problems.
We study people, culture, customs, habits, activities, and work climate, synthesise complex research evidence about a work problem or opportunity, then engage pragmatic strategies to observe work in the natural and simulated environment, speak with those who know the work best, such as the workers and maintainers, and involve them in analysing and designing new work strategies.
We draw from physical, cognitive, psychological, and neurosciences as well as knowledge about systems design and organisational science to inform a human-centred design process. A work design method involves a system of discovery; the formulation of concepts, strategies, and features; back-and-forth development; implementation with trials in different scenarios; communication and training; and celebration.
We foster learning teams who want to continue to build these skillsets internally so that work design becomes embedded in the fabric of how business is done. The results are often award-winning. Businesses that engage this human-centred design thinking and acumen are fiercely competitive. This agility allows businesses to continually address market realities.
