It is a given that organisations are transforming at a rapid pace – from technological advancement, the changing workforce to unpredictable economic challenges, which is creating enormous pressure within the working environment impacting employees emotionally and potentially physically. Today’s work environment is evolving with organisations thinking differently about their workforce and adopting new HR approaches to keep up with the pace of advancement. As organisations adapt the way they work, it is paramount that they adapt the way they think about their wellness programmes.
Employee well-being is fundamentally important as it will enable workforces to withstand the dramatic changes in working environments. Holistic wellness is becoming the norm and the cornerstone of modern well-being and the idea is to shift thinking to meet the changing needs of the organisation and workforce. In return, this will offer a wide range of opportunities to stimulate greater employee engagement which should be based on a thorough understanding of the organisational and employee needs. We can achieve this by creating new innovations in employee well-being that will ensure greater employee engagement and productivity.
This course focuses on providing insight into implementing, maintaining and sustaining employee wellness within your organisation. The purpose of this course is to ensure a shared understanding of what employee wellness is, how to manage and drive it within an organisational environment.
