How does Joyous help

Encourage a holistic view of well-being for a culturally healthy workplace

We all know well-being is important, but at the enterprise scale it’s hard to identify who needs support and where resources should be applied.

The Mana Ora framework strengthens the connection between organisations and their people by combining a holistic view of well-being with Māori practices. It’s not about ‘good’ vs ‘bad’ or ‘right’ vs ‘wrong’; it’s about listening generously to people’s states of being, supporting their well-being, and helping them bring their best selves to everything they do.

What is Mana Ora

Three Māori models interwoven

  • Te Whare Tapa Whā

    By Sir Mason Durie. The four walls map to the key impact areas and sub topics of the Mana Ora framework: Taha Whānau (Connections), Taha Tinana (Physical), Taha Hinengaro (Mind), Taha Wairua (Spirtual). Each underpinned by Whenua (Land).

  • Te Mana Ātea

    By Donna Tamaariki. When these three attributes are applied, Ahūrutanga (a safe space) will be present. Each Mana Ora topic is considered from these three angles: Mana Ariki (being), Mana Ao Tukupū (doing) and Mana Atua (knowing).

  • Te Ara Maurea

    Te Ara Maurea is a non-linear continuum used to evaluate how someone is feeling about a topic based on te orokohanga o te ao, from eons of darkness to living earth. Influenced by the Tihei-Wa Mauri Ora framework.

Using Joyous for cultural healing in your enterprise

Regular cultural healing questions

Reach the whole organization by using Joyous to run our framework of weekly questions. The framework cycles through fundamental topics of Mana Ora focused on one topic per week. Each weekly question helps people reflect on their relationships and physical, spiritual and mental health. The result is faster and longer-lasting behaviour change.

Have coaching conversations

Responses go to the experts in your organization who can offer on-the-spot coaching, encouragement and support. This helps reinforce positive behaviour and encourage continuous focus on hauora (well-being) at scale.

See top actionable themes

The top actionable themes for each weekly conversation are surfaced in near-real time. Thereby surfacing trends across the organization and within particular cohorts. Your experts can use this weighted view of the most impactful actions to inform their plan and direct their energy to the parts of the organization that would benefit most.

Prioritise your cultural healing plan

Our interactive drill-down gives context and detail on themes. This makes it easy to find the most effective actions to uplift hauora (well-being) across your organisation.
