"We’re helping them do that by improving the health, wellbeing and, ultimately, the productivity of their staff. The app now allows us to take that support to the next level and deliver even greater results.”

A spokesperson for Siemens Gamesa said: “Siemens Gamesa are proud partners of Coyle Health and Wellbeing and are excited to take part in the launch of the new app.

“Our continued relationship with Tommy Coyle is a prime example of our progress to being an industry leader of health and wellbeing at work.”

Jim Wardlaw, Chief of Product and Design at Sauce, said: “There’s no doubt the world has become more digital because of the pandemic. Companies and industries have had to adapt to new ways of working to survive and grow and, along with the challenges, there are positives that have come from this.
