Creating Multidimensional Wellbeing
SOPHIA Oxford is pleased to announce the creation of the social venture Wise Responder Inc.
Wise Responder will bring the internationally recognized, scientific “multidimensional poverty index” (MPI) methodology developed by Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) to financial institutions, investors, and corporates.
All SOPHIA Oxford activities are being transitioned to Wise Responder.
WE DO IT
For companies committed to their employees, supply chains, customers & communities
We provide packages that arm companies with valuable metrics and practical tools that allow them to deeply understand the level of well-being of their employees and other stakeholders, in order to guide/strengthen their HR programs and improve the targeting of programmes/products etc.
For Investors interested in Social Impact
We are developing tools to make key social indicators and analyses available to ESG investors and corporate analysts. The results and potential applications of this research are described in the Citi Global Perspectives & Solutions (Citi GPS) Report – “ELIMINATING POVERTY : The Importance of a Multidimensional Approach in Tackling SDG1” – co-authored with SOPHIA Oxford.
WISE RESPONDER ACTION KIT
“The new methodology and accompaniment of SOPHIA has made a difference in reaching the homes of our people and being able to know their realities. It has been enriching to start with the development of the first stages where we have managed to empower leaders, middle managers and all collaborators to make this program a platform for everyone. Working together different alternatives that improve our well-being and that of our homes will be the key to making this program successful and thus building a company that will last the next 100 years."
“The interesting thing about all this analysis is that everything is just a “click away”, the amount of information and data that we are having is impressive. Information is power, information helps you make correct decisions, align yourself. All of this will help us to be more efficient, more effective.”
“The company has had support programs in the past, but this methodology allows us to review, redefine and confirm the programs we were working on, now counting on the support of all of us who work in the company. It is allowing us to add to our corporate culture a more complete idea of mutual support between collaborators and our families”
SOPHIA Oxford was formed by Oxford University, as a not-for-profit partner of Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI). Over the past decade OPHI has developed the field of multidimensional measurement, focused primarily on poverty and wellbeing, expanding its research and social policy uses. The OPHI multidimensional poverty approach has been adopted by the United Nations Development Program, the World Bank and as an official measure of poverty by more than thirty countries. SOPHIA Oxford is bringing this world class methodology to the private sector.
