Wellbeing, Human Resources

5 wellbeing resources you should know about

Teodora Penkova

The pandemic brought the discussion around wellbeing in the workplace to the top of the companies’ agendas. 

It’s no longer just about physical health and safety but it’s also about how employees feel about their work and colleagues, and the working environment.

The Future Workplace 2021 HR Sentiment found that 68% of senior HR leaders rated employee wellbeing and mental health as a top priority. But there are still things that organisations are getting wrong.

We recently talked about how businesses can tackle mental health issues in the workplace and for today’s article, we found a few wellbeing resources that people leaders and employers will find useful.

1. Mind

 There are numerous reasons for work absenteeism, and according to Mind, poor mental health is one of the main ones.

They have created a wellbeing guide that is specific about Covid-19 and its impact on people‘s lives. It’ll help you to promote wellbeing in the workplace and at home. 

Another way Mind can help is through E-learning which is ideal for anyone who would like to increase their understanding of mental health and wellbeing at work. 

Аnyone in the organisation can benefit from their resources and this is why we really like it. 

2. Samaritans

Samaritans provides a listening service for people struggling to cope and works with employers across the country to help them create happier and healthier workplaces

Samaritans offer an online learning programme that teaches employees to look after their mental health and how to look out for others. 

What we like about Wellbeing in Workplace is that people can learn in their own time and just 5 minutes a day are enough to help them to understand the importance of mental wellness.

3. St. John Ambulance

St. John Ambulance is a charity organisation that provides workplace training, first aid supplies and ambulance services. They also provide different courses from First aid to Mental health support. 

In just 5 steps their mental health guide explains how to create a wellbeing policy that is suitable for your workplace. 

4. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

NICE offers another practical guide that helps both senior management and team leaders to promote a culture of participation, equality and fairness in the workplace. 

We often talk about the important role line managers play within an organisation and this is a useful guide that gives them recommendations on how they should promote employees’ mental wellbeing, manage risk and provide opportunities for flexible working.

5. Engage in learning

Engage in learning is an e-learning platform designed to empower and upskill employees. 

One of the courses they teach is Positive Mental Health at Work for Employees which raises awareness of mental health issues and help staff to support colleagues who are struggling at work. 

The course covers real-life scenarios such as having a difficult conversation with your boss or returning to work after a long absence – raising awareness and reducing discrimination and stigma. 

 

No one is immune to mental or emotional breakdown and it’s important to remember that employers, managers, HR and employees all need to feel comfortable to speak openly about it.
