The Challenge

Communication Breakdown

A globally recognised industry leader, The Product Makers were at the forefront in flavours and bioactive ingredients—but their health and wellbeing initiatives were falling flat. Culture between departments was argumentative, production errors were rife and efficiencies were low.


The Opportunity

Getting it Together

The Product Makers partnered with Vitality Works over 10 years ago, bringing their people together across a range of holistic health and wellbeing initiatives from prostate and breast cancer checks to 10K step challenges, seminars, stretching and mindfulness classes, massages, exercise classes and team building activities. And to make every initiative work on the ground—a Vitality Works consultant was with the team every step of the way.

The Outcome

Collaboration, Coordination & Culture

Vitality Works programs have improved The Product Maker’s internal productivity and efficiency while lowering production losses and sick leave. Less tangibly but no less importantly, attitudes have improved and The Product Maker’s culture has shifted. Together, The Product Makers and Vitality Works have created an integrated workforce where people feel valued.

“Vitality Works helped our people come together—the team building programs were a particularly nice surprise.”
