Built for people, by people.
Who we are.
We believe in a world where individual well-being is prioritized as a key to business success, equal or greater to financial KPIs. Well-being is not simply a by-product of engagement survey results. It directly impacts how we work and employee mental, physical and emotional fitness to engage. At the end of the day, whether you choose to talk about it or not, well-being directly impacts productivity and performance.
Despite the wealth of science available on well-being, the term is often misunderstood and inspires negative feelings such as being overwhelmed. Quan exists to demystify the world of well-being for both organizations and individuals by breaking down the science, increasing self-awareness and guiding both teams and individuals through self-care steps designed to improve well-being in quantified ways.
“The minimum amount of any physical entity” – there are over 200 dimensions contributing to an individual’s well-being – to improve the whole, we must be willing to look at the smaller parts.
By bringing in ways to quantify aspects relating to well-being, we hope to demystify it – helping individuals, teams and organizations to better understand and take steps to improve it.
Our founding story.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, the founding Quan team, a group of experts from various fields, came together to reflect on the importance of well-being, “It became obvious that COVID-19 was having a heavy impact on both our personal and work lives”. What stood out was that organizations were attempting to help employees by offering well-meaning, albeit generic solutions, “hosting online yoga sessions, sending employees smoothies and providing ergonomic office equipment.” However, many efforts only offered short term relief and did not tackle the underlying issues. It became clear that instead of trying to offer solutions, the focus needed to be on helping people identify the core problems.
The founding members of Quan worked diligently with psychologists and therapists to develop a well-being assessment focused on improving “self-awareness” and helping individuals identify the areas which need attention across their personal and work lives. Quan’s digital platform is geared at driving behavioural change by offering a holistic method to improve “self-care”. The digital solution brings together an assessment, personalised insights and tailored interventions – backed by data and delivered by experts from both the science and practice fields.
