London—March 29, 2023—Vialto Partners, a leader in global mobility, tax and immigration services, and ihp ANALYTICS, a company specialising in advanced human performance science, have announced a ground-breaking alliance to offer the next level of care for business travellers and mobile employees.
Leveraging ihp ANALYTICS’ unique, real-time digital software platform, My Work-Life ANALYTICS® forged from the demanding world of elite sports, Vialto clients will be invited to take part in an exclusive programme, gathering powerful human data from a sample of their employees to understand the impact of business travel and other mobility events on employee health, wellbeing and, ultimately, their performance.
There is a growing body of evidence identifying the correlation between business travel and health. Recent independent studies from Harvard Business Review and International SOS found a strong correlation between the frequency of business travel with a wide range of physical and behavioural health risks. This included higher reported levels of stress, fatigue, burnout and loneliness, a higher Body Mass Index and clinical symptoms of depression in those who spent more than 14 nights away a month.
The data collected securely through the programme will enable businesses to take informed steps to improve the experience and wellbeing of their employees, and to improve issues such as talent identification, productivity and performance in their workforce whilst minimising burnout, absenteeism and presenteeism.
Sarah Mullen, Partner and Global Business Travel Leader at Vialto, said, “We are very excited about the launch of this ground-breaking project alliance with ihp ANALYTICS. At Vialto, we are focused on transforming the global mobility ecosystem and offering tech-enabled experiences and services to help companies mobilise a dynamic workforce.
“Offering a service rooted in data and human science that can improve employee health, wellbeing and performance, is the perfect extension to our services, and we hope the organisations we work with will be able to use the data to improve experiences for their workforce.”
ihp ANALYTICS CEO Steve Gill said: “We are looking forward to working with Vialto Partners, in bringing a real time digital wellbeing and performance capability to the demanding world of business travel, allowing individuals for the first time, to take ownership of their wellbeing and organisations to make data-led people decisions. Improving employee wellbeing has a proven, positive impact on productivity, presenteeism and retention in businesses, this ground-breaking programme represents a paradigm shift in the way we manage our work-life balance.
“Working with Vialto is an excellent fit for us, as they provide global businesses (who have a high proportion of employees travelling and working remotely) with mobility solutions. This technology will enable organisations to see the real time wellbeing and performance of remote staff, helping to shape support and intervention packages to individual needs. We look forward to seeing the results from this pioneering programme.”
