Wellbeing at Work

Effective prevention of stress through the promotion of wellbeing in the workplace

This is a sample learning overview that we can design and deliver specifically for your organisation.

20% of 2,050 workers surveyed recently by the charity Mind have phoned in sick because of unmanageable stress levels. Statistics that are shocking but hardly surprising. The deepest and most protracted downturn since the great depression of the 1930s. Waves of redundancies and, for those in work, a freeze or a cut in salary or wages. Job security greatly diminished by globalisation, fierce competition and the impact of disruptive technologies. Our approach is focused on the effective prevention of stress through the promotion of wellbeing at work.

Who will benefit?

 Any team that feels that the pressure they face in their work environment is intense and demanding. Any manager looking for an innovative way to provide practical help and support for their people and to provide powerful evidence that they are valued and respected. Any leader looking for a framework within which a broad range of issues can be addressed – from dysfunctional teams to individual underperformance, and from employee engagement to rates of sickness and absence

Participants will be able to:

  • Apply strategies that enable them to thrive in a work environment in which the workload is heavy and expectations are high
  • Put into practice practical techniques based on mindfulness and the reassertion of personal influence, power and agency
  • Use tools for prioritisation, time management and personal effectiveness

  • The link between wellbeing and enhanced performance and contribution
  • The principles – from psychology, ergonomics, neural science and physiology – that underpin wellbeing
