How to Promote Wellbeing and Resilience at Work

Wednesday 2nd November is National Stress Awareness Day, and this year the focus is on Wellbeing and Resilience at Work.

Here are some simple suggestions of what you can do in your workplace next week (even at this short notice), to show you are a caring employer who takes the wellbeing of your staff seriously:-

  • Invite some local massage therapists to do 10 minute shoulder massages for people at their desks, or in the staff room at lunchtime
  • Invite the local leisure centre to come and explain all their facilities and classes at lunchtime
  • Make a “30-minute-away-from-your-desk” lunchbreak compulsory next Wednesday
  • Ensure that everyone leaves the premises at 5pm (or when ever the end of the working day should be)
  • Encourage staff to hold lunchtime clubs next Wednesday – a choir, organised walk, football game, craft hour
  • Ask a local yoga teacher to come and do a “fully clothed” relaxation and stretching session at lunchtime

You get the idea! Make next Wednesday a day when wellbeing is discussed by the whole workplace. You may be surprised with what comes out of the day, your staff could be more creative than you think, and some on-going initiatives may result.

Also, NSAD would be a good opportunity to remind your staff of the support which is in place for them:-

  • Where they can find the business’s stress policy
  • Make sure they have the EAP or confidential counselling contact details
  • Ensure that all staff are aware that they have an obligation to tell their manager or HR, if they are feeling stressed or under pressure
  • Up-date staff on any other Wellbeing initiatives that the business runs

    I believe what you published made a great deal of sense. However, what about this? suppose you added a little content? I ain’t saying your information is not solid., but suppose you added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to get people to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.|
