The BuddyBoost story.
BuddyBoost was co-founded by Robert Tansey, the leader of Sky’s ‘Skyride’ cycling programme and Ian Malcolm, who has previously led large human resource functions.
Both Robert and Ian felt that employee wellbeing was either focused on super-serving the already healthy, or worse, just a tick-box exercise that failed to create a positive work culture. And so BuddyBoost was designed to be highly inclusive and built around community and peer support. Using these ingredients we aim to allow companies to build a culture of wellbeing, where everyone is invited.
Our initial mission was to make a million people healthier and happier. We're making good progress and we hope you will join us on this mission.
BuddyBoost’s development has been supported by a range of experts, each of whom were motivated by their own workplace experiences, and their sincere belief that being active and helping others to do the same is a good way to stay healthier and happier.
