Managing Your Wellbeing In The Workplace

Workplace wellbeing is far more than a bowl of fruit on the desk and Pilates at lunchtime, it is about how we feel about work and our workplace. How we draw meaning and purpose from our work, what our contribution means to us and how we make it count. When we are immersed in our work, when we draw meaning and purpose from it, time flies by and we feel an enormous sense of achievement. When we are simply trying to ‘get through the day’ the opposite can be true, and it can be very stressful; and often exhausting.

This course is designed to help you manage your wellbeing whilst working from home, a modified workplace or a remote site. It is focused on the work-life integration requirements of juggling the challenges of the pandemic with personal and social life. Conceding that work has changed beyond recognition over the last 12 months, this is now likely to be interwoven. This course will equip you to recognise and adapt to the ‘new’ workplace, whatever that entails for you.
