Wellbeing Champions Development Programme
Develop In-House Wellness Expertise
SME’s can be busy and stressful places to work. When even a small number of employees are struggling with stress, it can have a big impact on an organisation’s costs and productivity.
Having your own in-house Wellbeing Champions enables your organisation to be more proactive in reducing stress, burnout and absenteeism. It also enhances your ability to attract and retain key talent.
We develop your Wellbeing Champions with the knowledge, skills and confidence to build and execute wellbeing programmes and embed a culture of wellness in the organisation.

Who is the Wellbeing Champion Programme for?
This course is for employees who have a keen interest in their own wellbeing and are motivated to create a culture of wellbeing in their organisation. All they need is some support from experts who can provide them with tools and templates to begin making a difference in their workplace.
Champions may have any job role in the organisation and they will usually integrate their wellbeing champion duties alongside their normal duties. The programme addresses how participants can manage dual roles.
