WELLBEING AT WORK
ENHANCE YOUR WORKPLACE

CREATE A CULTURE OF WELLBEING

IN YOUR ORGANISATION

Teamwork

Getting the best out of each member of your team ensures the overall efficiency of any organisation. You are only as strong as your weakest link. Strong personalities, unhappy cultures and poor communication can mean that staff teams become a problem. It doesn't have to stay like this - change can happen. People can be supported to work as a team and work for a common goal

Stress

Stress is not all bad - it can really help motivate and inspire us, help us be creative and meet deadlines. If stress becomes a permanent feature, before long we begin to creak under the weight of it. Some people can tolerate more than others, but we all have our "tipping point". We may then become unwell physically or mentally. Our bodies are messaging to us the distress it is feeling - and we need to listen.

Health & Wellbeing

A thriving happy workforce is what we want to achieve - people working to their potential, with their needs met and policies in place to ensure equity. We also want people to be healthy - physically and mentally and have a culture that is conducive to this. The payback is a healthy workforce, less sickness absence and more efficiency. Contact us - we can help your workplace achieve improved wellbeing

Short sessions to improve wellbeing at work

Coffee 'n' Chat or Lunch 'n' Learn sessions are the perfect way to bring bite-sized wellbeing education in to your workplace. Sessions such as:

"How science can help us to be happier"

"Resilience - bounce back from set-backs"

"Stress - deal with it effectively"

"Wellbeing - be the best you can"
