Research shows that optimistic and resilient people are happier, healthier and live longer. People with good wellbeing are also better equipped to adapt to change, complexity and adversity and build more productive relationships. It's clear that when we feel good, we do better!
These proven principles of positive psychology form the foundations of everything we do at Camp Quality. To support our staff and volunteers to be consistently resilient and optimistic, we collaborated with world-leading psychologists and consultants to create a science-based wellbeing program known as ORANGES.
The ORANGES program was originally delivered as engaging 2-day workshops based on the science of positive psychology, emotional intelligence and neuroscience, linked to academic research from the world’s leading universities such as Harvard, Stanford, Pennsylvania, Melbourne and Oxford. It offered measurable outcomes and evidence-informed practical tools that could be immediately implemented to improve wellbeing, collaboration and performance.
The ORANGES program was so effective, that in 2017 we decided to share it with our partners and other organisations through the establishment of our social enterprise, The Oranges Toolkit.
The Oranges Toolkit is now an award-winning, certified social enterprise that offers a wide range of science-based, in-person and online workplace wellbeing solutions, including:
- Strategic consultation and wellbeing audits
- Wellbeing workshops (In person or online)
- A self-directed e-learning program
- Targeted webinars
- Events and keynotes
- Leadership and coaching programs
- Behaviour change tools (such as a micro-learning app series)
The Oranges Toolkit has helped thousands of individuals, teams and more than 70 organisations Australia-wide including DHL Express, Motorola Solutions, SafeWork SA, The Australian Institute of Sport and Roche to boost employee wellbeing and emotional agility. Profits from the impactful programs are returned to Camp Quality, meaning these organisations are also directly helping us to support kids facing cancer.
