Bodyworkz Case Studies
The company: VizExplorer is a software company that makes 'super graphics', with software makes life easier, more productive and profitable for virtually any business. VizExplorer is led by a team of renowned business intelligence experts and world-class software developers devoted to building the very best products.
The problem: The initial inquiry came via email: “We have 10-15 staff here that are mostly computer programmers, and are working long hours in front of their computers. I am thinking it would be nice to look at rewarding them with corporate massage. Would this be possible? I appreciate any info you can give.”
The solution: Bodyworkz set up a trial date for the next week, with a therapist going into the office to give 15-minute on-site massages to each of the staff. 10 people were interested, and the trial was successful. After that, we set up a fortnightly session to commence after the trial. Soon, however, the staff decided to change their massages to a weekly session instead, when the company decided to subsidize each session 50 / 50, for the staff.
The result: Following up with the client, the feedback was positive. “Our staff are thriving with the ongoing support of massage therapy. We are noticing incredible benefits such as less sick days, less overall stress and a more positive working environment. Our staff are happier and really look forward to Wednesdays when we have our therapist in the office."
The company: Thomson Reuters business has been publishing and updating information on New Zealand law since 1910. They are a leading provider of information and solutions to the legal, tax, accounting and business markets in New Zealand.
The Problem: Query received by email: ‘We currently have a corporate massage scheme in our Auckland office which we are currently reviewing and I would like to arrange to meet with someone to discuss what you could provide for our organization (possibly in Wellington and Auckland). I will be in Auckland soon and wondered if there was anyone who would be available to meet with myself and a colleague to discuss what you can do for us?’
Our reply: We have staff working in both Auckland and Wellington, and would be happy to meet with you next week. Alternatively, if time is an issue, we could do a video Skype call as well if that suits better.
The solution: From client: ‘We have now cancelled out existing service and would like to trial Bodyworkz for two sessions in the Auckland office which we will then evaluate before deciding on what we would like to do long term.’
We set up the trial for two sessions in the Auckland office, and then let the company evaluate before deciding on what we would like to do long term.
The result: Thomson Reuter choose Bodyworkz as their ongoing provider of on-site chair massage for their staff on a fortnightly basis. Since Bodyworkz has a large Auckland team of therapists, we always make sure that their appointment day is covered should a therapist be sick or unable to attend, the client will not miss out.
The team at Thomson Reuter is still enjoying their regular fortnightly on-site massage sessions.
