What’s trending in learning? April 2024

From mental health support to self-care tips, we’ll share courses and content providers to help you improve your well-being at home and work.

In this month’s edition, we’re sharing content recommendations for your employees around the topic of well-being. From mental health support to self-care tips, we’ll share courses and content providers to help you improve your well-being at home and work. On top of that, we’ll also detail all the latest additions to the Go1 library.  

So, what’s trending in learning this April?  

Topic spotlight: well-being 

Well-being, both at work and home, is essential for a happy, engaged workforce. Yet, Gallup finds that just 33% of employees are “thriving” in their workplace well-being — leaving plenty of room for improvement.  

This statistic is concerning for several reasons. At a basic, human level, facilitating workplace well-being is simply the right thing to do. Additionally, improving well-being also has several business benefits, with one study finding that every $1 spent on workplace mental health results in $4 of productivity gain and savings.  

Here are five fantastic courses on Go1 that can help you and your employees improve their well-being. 

1. Look After Yourself at Work and Home by Beyond Blue (12 mins)
