growing and glowing: key wellbeing takes on its first employee

10th May 2022

Workplace wellbeing organisation, Key Wellbeing announces it is growing and glowing, having appointed its first, full-time employee.


Hannah Draboczy joins the small, but mighty team as Marketing Lead and will manage the businesses marketing and customer engagement moving forward, with a focus on raising the profile of Key Wellbeing and the ways it can help employees to become healthier and happier at work.


Since launching in 2020, Co-founders, Marie Ranson and Melissa Armstrong have worn all the hats to get Key Wellbeing to where it is today, alongside some invaluable support from Teesside University.


The Middlesbrough-based start-up initially took part in the University-led initiative, DigitalCity, to develop a digital solution for its workforce wellbeing consultancy and training company throughout the pandemic and later joined the LaunchPad FUEL Programme to develop the business further.


FUEL also opened the door to an office within the University’s Victoria Building where the team work their magic to help employees thrive at work via bespoke wellbeing programmes, initiatives and The Key Wellbeing Hub; an all-in-one, employee wellbeing and support e-learning platform.


Its first internal appointment marks the start of Key Wellbeing’s exciting growth plans, adding to their partner network with intentions to add further recruits later this year.


New recruit Hannah Draboczy said: “I am over the moon to have joined the Key Wellbeing team. I met Marie and Melissa during the early stages of their start-up when they took part in the Accelerator Programme led by DigitalCity, who I was working for at the time.


From the get-go I have admired what they are doing to support employee wellbeing, and their unique approach to wellness at work. They’re all about bringing fun, happiness and value to workplaces, while educating employers to support the serious stuff like mental health, personal development and financial wellbeing.


With my own passion for all things wellbeing, health and having fun, I feel so lucky to be part of their journey and I’m really looking forward to shouting about all the great things we can do to help businesses both regionally and nationally.”


Former Teesside University graduate and Commercial Director of Key Wellbeing Marie said: “What an exciting time to be in the wellbeing space, if the pandemic has taught us anything it is that our mental health matters. Thrilled to be growing our team and supporting more organisations within the Tees Valley and beyond.”


Melissa Armstrong, Creative Director of Key Wellbeing added: “We are so pleased the business is growing and in a position to be able to take on Hannah, who we know will be a great addition to the team here at Key Wellbeing, bringing her extensive marketing experience to help us reach more businesses that are in need of a wellbeing boost”
