What is it?

Only 25% of professionals think managers within their organisations are confident and competent to spot the early warning signs of mental ill health. 33% of employees haven’t had their wellbeing checked on by their manager since the start of the pandemic. 46% of companies say they have an ad-hoc approach to wellbeing based on reacting to employer need. Research from Gallup found that people with a bad manager had even worse wellbeing than those without jobs.

Line managers have a busy and demanding role, with many different pressures and success measures to meet. On top of this, many will not have been trained on the people management side of their role, and therefore these responsibilities can prove challenging, especially if they are new to line management.

Given the influence managers have on determining employee health, wellbeing and engagement, people professionals need to ensure that the line managers within their organisations have the tools, guidance and support channels to effectively provide support to those they manage.

We can help you understand the impact and importance of a joined up, holistic and strategic approach to wellbeing. The Workplace Health and Wellbeing Training Course for Line Managers is a 3 hour course, which explores:

  • What wellbeing is, how it relates to health and safety, and why managing wellbeing is so important
  • How and why many organisations get it wrong
  • The manager’s role in managing wellbeing and the importance of managing their own wellbeing
  • How line managers can support their team and organisation in respect of health, safety and wellbeing.

Our expert facilitators can visit your workplace (or virtually) and deliver 2 sessions per day to a group of 20.
