Bain Well-being

B.E.S.T. (Balanced. Energized. Successful. Team.) is our global and holistic approach to bringing – and keeping – wellbeing at the forefront of our culture. B.E.S.T. brings together Bain’s wellbeing resources, tools, training and coaching into one framework.

We are making wellbeing a priority by creating an environment that educates, encourages and enables Bainies to put wellbeing at the center of their lives. We’ve created B.E.S.T. to help each of us reach our full potential, both personally and professionally and in turn, continue to create value for our clients and communities.

B.E.S.T. is also rooted within our Operating Principle: A Bainie Never Lets Another Bainie Fail. We trust and support our colleagues, celebrating each accomplishment as a shared success for all.

At the organizational level, B.E.S.T. focuses on:
• Unwavering leadership commitment - Sponsoring the change towards a culture that supports wellbeing and modeling B.E.S.T. practices
• An environment based on our operating principles - Driving action, accountability and transparency by establishing policies, processes and procedures that support making wellbeing possible

To empower Bainies, B.E.S.T. focuses on:
• Capability building - Interactive and self-paced learning activities and tools designed for Bainies to establish a common language, foster an open dialogue and provide information needed to help us make the personal choices to become our best selves
• Executive Coaching by B.E.S.T. - Series of confidential, 1:1 sessions with a trained and experienced B.E.S.T. coach. Coaches listen, ask powerful questions, and empower individuals so they can become more balanced, energized, and successful, and team more effectively at Bain and beyond.
• Wellbeing resources - Best-in-class external tools and offerings to help us with all aspects of our wellbeing
