Wellbeing in the workplace has never been a more topical issue. Stress, burnout and anxiety are all soaring. Mental ill health now costs UK employers an estimated £34.9 billion a year – the equivalent of £1300 for every employee (MHFA England). Something has to be done to support mental health and wellbeing in the workplace and managers are in the perfect position to do this. In this session, we will equip managers with effective coping strategies to support others – as well as themselves.
We’ll also introduce the principles, skills and practices of resilience. When faced with the constant change and disruption of the modern workplace, the skill of ‘resilience’ is of heightened importance. Broadly, it is the ability to ‘bounce back’ when facing challenges. The good news is that it is something that can be learned – and in this session we’ll focus on the best known strategies for doing just that.
