we help charity & not-for-profit organisations and professionals to recognise and reap the individual & organisational wellbeing benefits of prioritising management skill and workplace culture 

What do workplace culture and management skill have to do with wellbeing?

Our 2018 research showed that 81% of nfp workplace stress and unwellbeing is caused by workplace culture and manager skill challenges

Workplace Culture and Management Skill are the biggest influencers of organisational success & wellbeing

our approach


I'm Claire Warner: award-winning workplace wellbeing & culture consultant; management skill & confidence coach; and curator of the Charity Workplace Wellbeing Summit

And I'm passionate about helping people and organisations in the charity & not-for-profit sectors to prioritise and benefit from taking the wellbeing approach to people and culture. 

As a former Charity Senior Leader, I understand the conflict of wanting to be a great leader, enjoying a full and happy life inside and outside of work; and the pressure of always feeling I need to ask more of myself and my team, the frustration of feeling like there has to be another way, but not knowing how to achieve it


I also know what it's like to try to return to that high-pressure environment after life-changing illness. 


That’s why my mission is simple: to combine my 20 years of charity-side SLT experience with the workplace and individual wellbeing knowledge, insight and expertise I've gained and developed over the last 5 years, and to share them to give my charity and social enterprise clients the skills, tools and resources they need to use the wellbeing approach to create happy, healthy, vibrant and successful workplaces and teams with fulfilling lives inside and outside of work

Our current work focuses on the 3 key areas shown in our 2018/19 wellbeing research to be in most need and which deliver the biggest impact:

workplace wellbeing & culture

"A positive workplace culture improves teamwork, raises the morale, increases productivity and efficiency, and enhances retention of the workforce. Job satisfaction, collaboration, and work performance are all enhanced. And, most importantly, a positive workplace environment reduces stress in employees" Forbes 2018

management skill & confidence

According to research by Gallup, 50% of people quit their jobs because of their managers.  In a sector where we already have huge expectations of people, we need to ensure those managing them are doing so in a way that helps them deliver their best, not their most stressed. This applies to the managers too!

personal wellbeing & life balance

For people to be at their best in work, they need to be at their best in all areas of life: they need to be rested, nourished, they need to do the things they love and be with people they love, they need space, they need joy and they need room to do nothing.  Most of all, they need to recognise this AND give themselves permission to seek this

workplace wellbeing summit

in April 2021, we curated the UK's first charity sector workplace wellbeing summit, hosted by our amazing friends at Fundraising Everywhere. With speakers such as Professor Sir Cary Cooper, Beth Kanter, Simon Blake, Liz LeClair and colleagues from The Timpson Group, The Children's Society, and British Red Cross, it was a value-packed event .  And beauty of an online summit is you can record it so that people can enjoy and benefit from it in the future!

you-ser manual

A Managers’ Guide to creating a you-ser manual for you and your colleagues, designed to help build and strengthen communication, relationships and understanding in purpose-driven teams

There is an abundance of data which proves that engaged, well-communicated-with and collectively-purpose-driven teams outperform their disengaged, badly communicated-with, siloed colleagues by significant margins.

When colleagues know and understand more about themselves and each other, teams fly!


wellbeing research

In 2019 I undertook a piece of research into the wellbeing of Fundraisers and other professionals working in the nonprofit sector.  Over 1000 people took part, 703 of whom were fundraisers

The findings of the research were carried in Civil Society's Fundraising and Governance & Leadership publications

You can download a copy of the Fundraising article.  If using or quoting information from it, please reference the Claire Warner Charity Well Research

why workplace wellbeing?

For organisations to be successful, they need the right people in the right roles, with the right tools and resources.  But much more than that, they also need those people to be physically and mentally well, to be motivated and coached by skilled managers, to see their part in and to be led towards a common goal by inspiring leaders, and to be encouraged and empowered to do their best work.  In many organisations, the first happens, but not the second, and desired success does not follow

Focus on increasing workplace wellbeing contributes to improving job satisfaction, which in turn increases work quality,  productivity and performance right across an organisation.  And job satisfaction-led improved performance leads to further job satisfaction and further improved performance and success - who doesn't want that?

the 'gram

For 2022, I'm trying to be less distracted, both in terms of time and focus, by social media.  The two places you'll find me showing up most are Instagram and LinkedIn (click to connect)
