The wellbeing of employees has become an intrinsic part of workplace health and safety, which no longer just focuses on physical dangers in the workplace. Employers have a responsibility for the mental wellbeing of their staff, and it helps to take a pro-active approach to supporting healthy behaviour - both at home and at work. An important factor is achieving healthy relationships between workmates.
Every workplace is different and presents its own culture and values which can come with challenges. A current theme is managing a multi-generational workforce (ie Baby Boomers, Millennials, Gen Y, and Gen Z), and creating a workplace culture that values mental wellbeing.
This workshop is developed with you for your unique workplace and may include content such as tools and skills to help with everyday personal challenges, including Te Whare Tapa Whā (a model of the four cornerstones of Māori wellbeing) and/or The 5 Ways of Wellbeing, building greater confidence and self-esteem, and understanding what is available in your community that could be helpful.
