As an employer or manager, you need to make sure that employee health and wellbeing is considered as part of your organisation’s workplace health and safety strategy.
With work-related stress being a leading cause of physical and mental health issues, it’s important to take steps to ensure your employees are not being subjected to unnecessary workplace stress.
Both employers and managers also need to be aware of the impact of low physical and mental health on employees and organisations. Productivity, performance, morale, and absenteeism levels can all be affected when employees experience low physical and/or mental health.
Providing staff with ongoing health and wellbeing training in the workplace is the best way to create a healthy work culture and environment – together.
Online training courses are an excellent way to deliver health and wellbeing training to employees across all levels – team members, managers, senior leaders – within your organisation.
With online courses, team members have the convenience of completing training modules at their own pace, at a time and place that’s comfortable for them. By giving staff access to these kinds of learning resources, you can empower individuals to improve their situation and understand more about the importance of workplace wellbeing.
Online training is also a great way to promote discussion of mental health and wellbeing within your team, in a safe, non-threatening and engaging way.
With many people experiencing low mental health, in the form of anxiety, depression or panic disorders, it’s also really important that we know how to talk about mental health in the workplace, to support workers, and reduce any stigma still surrounding this area.
We know that selecting a health and wellbeing training provider for your employees can seem daunting. But it doesn’t have to be.
