There are many well-recognised sources of stress in the workplace, including poor relationships (e.g., bullying), high demands and rapid change. If not managed well, these challenges pose a severe risk of stress. If managed well, however, these factors contribute to employee engagement.
In this course, we introduce key concepts of stress and wellbeing. Participants learn to identify the early warning signs of stress in themselves and others and decide the best means of supporting team members.
We introduce the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Management Standards and use the ORGRPQ survey to help participants identify potential sources of stress in their teams.
We also introduce the concept of employee engagement and the PERMA model of wellbeing, developed by Professor Martin Seligman.

Who is it for?

Academics, Researchers, Technical Staff and Learning and Teaching Staff with people management responsibility who want to promote resilience and wellbeing and achieve sustainable high performance.

Registrations will close before the Course date to provide sufficient time for delegates to complete the pre-course work. Please see the closure date in the 'Information and Booking' box on the right-hand side of this page.
