Wellbeing tech business acquires healthy roadshow firm
Wellbeing technology business Raiys has completed acquired The Healthy Employee, which works with employers to improve the physical and mental health and wellbeing, resilience and performance of their people through targeted programmes, including workshops, webinars and roadshows.
Founded by Anna Mason in 2008, The Healthy Employee is based near Moreton-in-Marsh in the Cotswolds. It employs a network of consultants, dietitians, nutritionists and healthcare specialists to deliver its services, which include health assessments, advice on posture, sleep and stress management, mental health first aid and catering provision in the workplace.
The Healthy Employee operates mainly in the construction and infrastructure sectors, working with companies in those industries to reduce sickness absence and improve staff wellbeing by delivering tailored programmes both onsite and remotely to support, engage, motivate and inspire them to make sustainable lifestyle changes.
Raiys, which is headquartered in Warrington, hasn’t disclosed the sum. The Healthy Employee brand will be retained, and Mason and her team remain with the business.
Founded in Warrington in 2018 by James Murphy, Raiys provides its health and wellbeing technology to over 750,000 employees in companies and organisations across the UK. The enlarged Raiys business has over 50 staff and has ambitious plans to double in size this year.
James Redshaw, of law firm Hill Dickinson’s corporate team in Manchester, advised Raiys on the acquisition.
