Global thought leader in organisational safety culture, Professor Doctor Andrew Sharman leads drive to transform workplace wellbeing and put this at the centre of recovery with a new online IOSH Certificate in Workplace Wellbeing Leadership.
Perhaps for the first time ever, the ‘Health’ in Health & Safety has risen to have the same focus and importance placed on it as ‘Safety’. As OSH professionals we need to make the most of this ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to truly put wellbeing at the centre of our approach as we focus on getting through the pandemic and back to work. But understanding how to embed and promote wellbeing in the workplace can be difficult to navigate. That's why we've created our new IOSH Certificate in Workplace Wellbeing Leadership, the only IOSH accredited online program designed to create more resilient, energised and healthy leaders.
Wellbeing in the workplace is not just about mental health – it’s the whole package. It’s about all your employees having the health, vitality and energy to excel in their roles and outperform the competition. In today’s challenging times, where the competition is nipping at your heels, having an energised and resilient workforce is of paramount importance and is a key driver to business growth.
Developed from his book co-authored with Hari Kalymnios, Working Well: What You Need to Know to Live a Longer, Happier, Healthier Life and their existing highly successful Working Well live training session, the new IOSH Certificated online program equips leaders with immediately applicable knowledge and the practical skillset to drive positive change and build a culture of ‘Working Well’ within their organization. Drawing on robust research, proven methods and ideas from a diverse range of resources including nutrition and yogic philosophy to behavioural management and sleep science, the program enables individuals to explore the foundations of wellbeing and the keys to Working Well.
Andrew highlights “As our lives get busier and busier, particularly as many of us are working remotely, boundaries between work and leisure blur and we spend less time thinking about what we’re actually putting our bodies through. This fast-living is resulting in a pandemic of ‘ill-being’: from general weariness and ‘feeling under the weather’ to prolonged bouts of sickness, lethargy and sharp increases in stress, depression and mental health issues.”
Over the past 3 months Andrew has talked with thousands of people, over 75% of whom, have shared that they are feeling stressed or anxious because of the pandemic.The Institute of Leadership & Management’s recent survey of UK managers showed that 84% had experienced mental ill-health symptoms linked to work, but that only 46% felt comfortable talking to their manager about it.
The Working Well online program focusses on creating a culture of care, and that starts with self-care and being encouraged to do that by your colleagues around you, as taking care of yourself not only helps improve organisational culture, but it also reduces errors, safety issues and optimises performance. This new online program will help you build a practical toolkit of simple, high-impact tools and techniques designed to increase your levels of health and energy, boost performance and productivity and return rapid results for you personally, and in your workplace now.
