Work is good for us. We all need to do something that creates meaning, purpose and direction in our lives.
The first national wellbeing survey found that people who have stable jobs are among the most likely to be satisfied with their lives. But unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to be the case for many of us. With rising numbers of mental health issues such as depression and anxiety costing the UK economy £11 billion each year, we believe it’s never been more important to help people of all ages find a career that suits their skill set and allowed them to add value and enjoy their work.
Meaningful work can make all the difference to a person’s sense of wellbeing - as well as being crucial to the economy. For example, Gallup’s most recent State of the Global Workplace report states that only 13% of the global workforce is engaged, leaving 63% not engaged and a further 24% actively disengaged. Needless to say, this costs business and economies billions every year.
The Meee Employment Programmes seeks to change these statistics by helping attendees find their sense of purpose and belonging. Our goals are:
- To empower people to understand and believe in themselves and their abilities by assessing strengths and using techniques to help people become more aware of what they are best at or best suited to.
- To enable all people to personally thrive by creating a ‘person centered’ approach regardless of where they are in life.
- To be an active and positive part of their community by an understanding and creation of value-based tools and resources.
Like everything we do at Meee, we start with the human being. In our employment programmes we focus on how best to support each person in an employment setting. This means helping participants better understand themselves, their strengths and potential best fit when it comes to specific roles and organisational cultures. It also means strengthening their social and emotional toolkit so they are better prepared to deal with the inevitable ups and downs of working life.
What we offer
We offer workshops in hourly formats as well as longer half and full day sessions. We also offer one day, two day and four-day sessions depending on what you or your organisation needs. These can be delivered at your organisation or at an off-site venue.
Our Meee Employment Programme begins with a 30-minute informal session delivered at your venue, designed to ease anxieties and provide information about the sessions to come. Our programmes are evidence based with a tailored action plan provided to individuals, work coaches and employers (as relevant). This is to enable individuals to continue development after completion of the course as well as to ensure the desired impact has been sustained or if there is any need for further support or intervention.
We have delivered our Meee Employment programme throughout Wales, working closely with the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and have delivered our courses to over 500 individuals. Over 98% of attendees stated our employment workshop was a positive experience and many have found meaningful work as a result of our programme.
All of our employment programmes are non-accredited. We truly believe that this offers the best opportunity for all attendees to focus on the process - self-reflection, empowerment, resilience and happiness - rather than the end product.

How Meee helped me
After we finished that Friday, I went over what we had learned and put a positive mind on and I'm glad to say the programme works as I managed to secure two interviews two different companies. I am feeling so positive since doing your course it has been non-stop all good for me.
I even passed on my experience and what I learned to my fiancee, Debbie and within days of her getting up and being positive has now secured herself a job at the F&F clothes department in Tesco's Prestatyn PaulRead more testimonials
