Well-being isn’t just a ‘nice to have’ – it should be a core part of your employee strategy.
Well-being isn’t just a ‘nice to have' – it should be a core part of your employee strategy. There are strong links between employee engagement and workplace wellbeing. Establishing a culture of wellbeing that is long-lasting and effective needs to come from the top down.
When it comes to stress, prevention is much better than cure: every £1 spent on workplace wellbeing can yield between £3 and £6 in gained productivity and efficiency, according to the chair of Britain’s Healthiest Company advisory group, Dame Carol Black.
The course will enable participants to consider the management of workplace stress at an individual and organisational level and will help participants develop and implement effective strategies to prevent and manage stress at work. It will provide an opportunity to develop the mindsets and habits you would like to role model as a manager.
There will be opportunities to relate the content to the delegates’ own work environment and to consider a range of practical stress management techniques that can help team members whilst complying with management health and safety responsibilities.

- Define pressure, stress and resilience
