Where we've been and where we're going.

2012

Current CEO Melis Abacıoğlu quits her day job and gets into the business of importing pedometers to no avail (argh!). But while trying to sell off the leftover pedometers to corporate companies, she finds that what companies really want is someone to set up company well-being programs for their employees. (lightbulb moment!)

Melis Abacıoğlu founds Actifit with the mission of supporting employees to lead healthier lifestyles and cultivate a culture of workplace well-being.

2019

Kerem & Melis travel to Las Vegas not to play blackjack but to attend the world's largest HR conference and learn from the best. (queue more lightbulb moments!) They both came back home, decided to trash the app as is, and start from scratch with their first team of developers.

Kızlar Sahada (Women on the Field) is a social initiative which empowers girls and women to embrace their love of football while challenging societal gender norms that dictate what individual can and can't do.

Kızlar Sahada

We’re an organization incredibly driven by data, and social data is no exception. Wellbees allows people professionals to analyze and track trends on its social tab to ensure the content is resonating and the effort invested by the team’s work has a much more significant impact.”

Katie Bisbee

Kizlar Sahada has trusted Wellbees to help support and provide mental well-being resources to its 250 female football players from 61 cities across Turkey. Just as we do with every organisation, our team at Wellbees created a custom program of content specifically geared toward the needs of Kizlar Sahada members. Our program allowed participants to socialise with one another, join challenges and clubs, and cultivate a vibrant, connected community of female Turkish soccer players who support and encourage one another.

Through their dedication and participation in Wellbees, these girls and young women earned WellPoints which allowed them to purchase sports equipment, language-learning courses, and receive expert consultation which contributed to their personal and professional development.

This is the type of impact we hope to continue having on communities across the globe!
