MyWellbeing.org

MyWellbeing.org is an exciting new online wellbeing resource for employers and their employees developed by Leeds Metropolitan University. With a number of clients across the public and private sector it already reaches over 200,000 employees and their families.

The flexible Content Management System (CMS) was aimed at both sponsor and stakeholders with the ability to add custom content to a flash-powered website, and streamline content publishing. These requirements utilised proficient skills in PHP, mySQL and JQuery.

The project was led from initial concept to delivery – planning and scoping technical requirements, designing the complex database structures and queries, developing AJAX-based editing functionality, and producing JSONP outputs that would power an iPhone application.

Working across internal teams and third-party agencies brought the project together by implementing further application data requirements, and creating development and live environments to lower the risk of disruption to live application user experiences.

Winner of a number of national awards, MyWellbeing.org harnesses the university’s wealth of wellbeing-related expertise and builds it into an innovative web portal to engage and inform its audience. The result is over 190 wellbeing topics easily accessible to all.
