ABOUT

Wittyfit, a human adventure above all

At the origin of WITTYFIT is a meeting of people with very different backgrounds, driven by the same convictions.

The genesis 

In 1977 the most tragic air accident in the history of aviation took place in Tenerife. The investigation demonstrated the essential role of “human factors” in flight safety. These lessons have since been at the heart of the continuing education of pilots and flight crews, with the results evident in terms of the level of safety and the quality of work achieved in the industry.

For more than a decade, Samuel has trained in and explored taking human factors into account in team management. Identifying the risks and organising the work of the crew calmly in order to maintain a high level of performance and safety in all situations, is a prerequisite for professional pilots. In a discipline where quality of work is vital, understanding human factors and their implications on team performance is decisive.

Thomas spent 15 years in the health insurance and pensions market. He is behind an internal project establishing a link between sport and professional achievement. His research led him to Canada, a pioneering country in this field. He discovered a movement called “Sport-Health in the workplace” with highly engaged actions in the field to improve quality of working life.

The meeting

The idea came about during a meeting between the two men in 2014. Thomas talked to Samuel about the positive correlation observed between employee well-being and business performance without, however, being able to measure the results.

 

Samuel explained the daily consideration of human factors in his job. They came to a shared observation: while a pilot has indicators capable of giving them all the information necessary for the smooth running of the flight and decision-making, there is no equivalent in the corporate world.

They then decided to develop a tool capable of evaluating and managing human factors in companies.

Professor Dutheil was chosen for his in-depth expertise in human sciences and occupational health. A common ambition marked the beginning of the adventure with the Clermont-Ferrand University Hospital: “Capturing feelings to act as quickly as possible”, and Wittyfit took shape after two years of research and development.

In 2015, Wittyfit became the very first platform in France capable of measuring job satisfaction and stress levels in real time. It remains the only platform to allow real management of human factors in companies.
