Workplace Wellbeing Training and Workshops
We run a range of training and workshops for organisations to boost the mental and physical health of employees
Our goal is to equip participants with practical tools that they can use immediately after the live training to bring about lasting changes to their health and wellbeing. We cover a range topics either as an interactive workshop or a talk/key-note presentation. These training sessions can be delivered in-person within your office space or virtually. Each live training session can also be tailored to your organisation's needs. Get in touch to receive a copy of our brochure which contains a more in-depth description of what is covered in each session.

How Organisations Can Benefit from Our Wellbeing Training & Workshops
Happier, healthier individuals
This training allows individuals to boost both their mental and physical health and equips them with tools to manage their health over the long-term. Organisations can build a workforce of happy and healthy employees - creating a positive culture and invested/engaged workforce.
Preventing Illness Amongst the Workforce
The Health and Safety Executive’s 2019/20 labour force survey indicates that 38.8 million working days are lost due to poor mental health caused by work-related stressors. As companies work to make their organisations “safer” from a health and well-being stand-point, they notice that not only are there less absences but also employees are more engaged and productive at work.
“I felt this training was really valuable. I came to it thinking mostly that it might help me support others but it was actually really beneficial on a personal level too. Thanks to the people team for arranging this”

Keeping Up With Competitors and Ensuring Employee Retention
Those employers that do not put well-being firmly on the agenda will lose employees to organisations that do. Individuals are actively looking for workplaces that look out for their health and well-being. More and more organisations are prioritising the health of their employees because they are realising that it is the best way to ensure employee satisfaction and guarantee long-term profitability. Many companies invest significant amounts of money just on recruitment and creating a workplace in which employees can be retained can really result in significant cost savings.
Promoting Innovation, Productivity and for Quality Assurance
When individuals are stressed or tired - their brains operate in a similar way to when they are drunk. The most evolved part of the brain, the pre-frontal cortex, shuts down and does not work as effectively when an individual is stressed or tired. So organisations may have worked hard to recruit exceptional talent - but if they are not ensuring those employees know how to manage their mental and physical health - they could have a workforce that is not operating at its full potential. This training equips individuals with tools to better manage stress and tiredness as well as to change their thinking-patterns and therefore to optimise productivity.
Increase in Profitability
The Farmer Stephenson Report comments that "Employers are losing billions of pounds because employees are less productive, less effective, or off sick”. Companies lose lots of money every year due to both mental and physical poor health. In fact around one in three of these working days lost in the UK is due to poor mental health and this is despite the fact that most mental illness is preventable. Our training equips individuals with tools which could dramatically reduce the number of working days lost and therefore could have a significant impact on the bottomline. A 2022 Deloitte report estimates that employers see a return of £5.30 on average for every £1 invested in staff wellbeing. This same report also highlights that 28% of employees have either left in 2021 or are planning to leave their jobs in 2022, with 61% citing poor mental health as the reason they are leaving.

When give the right tools and support and when they feel valued and listened to, every individual can thrive
Empowering individuals to manage their own health and to perform at their best
Very often individuals are not taught tools to manage their mental and physical health until they become unwell. However, we aim to equip all individuals with the tools that they need to manage their mental and physical health so that we can prevent illness and also get people to a place where they are truly happy, engaged and thriving.
Happier and healthier individuals can thrive at work
In sectors such as sports, it has long been acknowledged that individuals can be taught skills and benefit from coaching to get them in the mindset and health to be at the top of their game. We help cultivate this high-performance mindset which yes, helps individuals to thrive at work but also enables them to enjoy happiness in all areas of their life.
With a lot of conflicting and unhelpful advice on health and wellbeing out there, we think that it is very important for you to receive help and information from suitably qualified and trained experts in the fields of mental health and wellbeing.
We know that many people already know a lot about health and wellbeing. We don't just bombard individuals with common-sense information, we equip them with practical tools that they can use to make sustainable changes to their health and wellbeing and show them new ways of thinking about their mental and physical health. We also know that certain things recommended in the wellbeing space just are not practical or helpful in certain working environments, so ensure that our training sessions are tailored for your organisation and sector.
