Creating happier, healthier and more productive workplaces
We hear much these days about corporate wellness, employee wellness, health and well-being at work and related matters, but unfortunately much of what has been written, said and put into practice is superficial and simplistic and largely doomed to failure. This is because it does not do justice to the complexities of stress, bullying, conflict, discrimination and other such obstacles to an authentic culture of wellness. A positive approach to health and well-being is very much to be welcomed, but without also considering the negatives that stand in the way of making employee wellness a reality, success is likely to prove elusive.
In this introductory course, human relations expert Dr Neil Thompson provides helpful guidance on how a more sophisticated approach rooted in effective leadership can be much more successful. For more than a quarter of a century, Neil has been providing training and consultancy around effective management and leadership and how to get the best out of people. He draws on that experience and expertise in providing a sound foundation of understanding of how to promote employee wellness.
The course is structured around ten key principles to help you succeed in promoting healthier, happier and more productive workplaces, each of which offers important insights that can help bring about progress. Accompanying the video materials is a downloadable workbook with exercises to encourage reflection and space for notes.
