Greater Manchester Nurse Wins TalkTalk Women in Tech Award!

Stockport Nurse turned Workplace Wellbeing Consultant Celebrates Award Win at TalkTalk Northwest Women in Tech Awards

Nominations were invited from the public across six award categories: Rising Star, Innovation / Innovator, Tech for Good, Mentor of the year, Team of the year, Outstanding Achievement and Emma-Louise Fusari, 41, from Stockport won the Tech for Good category for developing her data-driven workplace wellbeing services and for her commitment in helping business leaders establish and eliminate the root cause of issues such as work-related stress and employee burnout.

Emma-Louise, Founder of In-House Health said, “I’m extremely proud to have won this award, especially as it’s my 20th Nursing Anniversary this year too. I would like to thank the judges for recognising the difference I am making and TalkTalk for their efforts to bring these awards together and for championing women in tech, especially in the Northwest.”

Emma-Louise, whose business is based in Salford’s Media City, established In-House Health in 2019 after 17 YEARS IN NURSING. The WellTech company enables her to use her nursing knowledge and experience to improve the health, wellbeing, social and financial outcomes for people and the businesses they work in.

After spending most of her career in general practice, Emma-Louise often felt like she wasn’t making any difference to her patient’s outcomes. Bound by red tape and bureaucracy she felt frustrated and disillusioned and left the NHS.
For a brief time, she registered as a childminder but still felt as though something was missing in her life and started looking for ways to use her nursing experience without having to return to the NHS.
That’s when Emma-Louise discovered workplace health and employee wellbeing initiatives. When researching what other avenues she could go down, she found that the approach to such initiatives currently provided by employers was too “fluffy, reactive and unmeasured”’, hence why they weren’t succeeding in making enough of a difference. So, she began on her journey to help businesses get to the root causes of problems like work-related stress and employee burnout, aiming to help reduce the risk.

Emma-Louise has always had a strong sense of justice and has often been labelled disruptive, but she’s always known that she wanted to build a legacy and use her disruptive nature to make a positive difference to others.

“To be recognised for doing what I love, which is positively impacting the lives of those I have the pleasure of working with and supporting, is truly humbling. For others to see and share my vision is phenomenal and to be acknowledged and celebrated in a tech award is also pretty cool,” added Emma-Louise.

The TalkTalk Northwest Women in Tech awards were hosted by Tristia Harrison, CEO of TalkTalk, and the awards were presented by Gary Neville and the Mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham.
