Here at Readiness, wellbeing is the foundation of all outstanding performance. Be it an elite sportsperson, a primary school student or a construction worker – they fundamentally will not get the best from themselves if they are not paying attention to the spectrum of wellbeing. In a world where technology continues to place a premium on human intuition, creativity and ingenuity, organisations that prioritise wellbeing, not just do the bare minimum, will find a tremendous competitive advantage.
Elite athlete exercise scientist Simon Kearney first identified the foundations of Readiness. With over 20 years of experience working in elite sports, monitoring and improving all the critical areas of wellbeing to achieve peak performance, Kearney saw the opportunity to apply these insights to help tap into the value businesses were missing out on.
Kearney joined forces with his mentor, prominent Australian businessman Gerry Ryan OAM, who identified Australian workplaces initially as the critical catalyst to driving a significant and lasting impact on the wellbeing of individuals across the country. They teamed up with experienced data and technology strategist Paul Francis, whose expertise in delivering digital products for significant organisations brought the concept of Readiness to reality.
From these early beginnings, Readiness is proud to work with organisations of all sizes and from various industries to support them on their journey to positive workplace mental health and wellbeing.
