Wellbeing Investment Series

Workplace Wellness programmes are an investment in the most important asset your business has … its employees. The Wellbeing Investment Series is a collection of workshops delivered by facilitators trained in the areas of health, physical activity and communications.

Work your way through all the topics or pick and mix to suit your workplace.

Topics include:

Mental Health and Safety

There is a growing acceptance of mental health in our communities with 1 in 5 New Zealanders experiencing a mental illness at some time in their lives, but how does this relate to your workplace? And now that mental health, excessive stress and workplace bullying is part of Health and Safety at Work Act, you need to be aware of the risk to you and your employees, and therefore, your organisation. This workshop will leave you knowing: What the current Health and Safety legislation says about mental health; Tips on creating an environment that promotes positive mental wellbeing; and Ideas on how to add to your Health and Safety policies to cover mental health.

Stress vs Burnout

Stress is something we all deal with regularly, and we are hearing more and more about Burnout… but what is the difference between the two? In this workshop, we talk about self-management, lifestyle causes, along with signs and symptoms to look out for. We also cover some practical tips on how to recover from burnout, and how to make the most of positive stress. This workshop can be directed either to employees or managers/team leaders.

Facilitation Skills

This workshop looks at the differences between facilitating support and providing support, some principles best outcomes. Part of the time is spent on discussing the reciprocity of facilitation and personal planning, followed by opportunities to use well-documented planning models. You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of one-to-one work and how to get the most meaningful results from your time spent with clients. This workshop can be directed either for staff in the health and disability sector (full day workshop) or to managers/team leaders (part day).

Resilience, Boundaries and Self-Care

The saying “you need to look after yourself before looking after others” is proving to be more and more accurate.  This workshop will help you to learn strategies to ensure you are working smarter for you and your workplace.

Recognising Difference

Negative attitudes and behaviours are a major barrier to many people recovering from a mental health problem.  Everyone has a part to play in breaking down these barriers, so come along and learn what you can do. We all want to be treated fairly and with respect.  Some of us don’t get this, because we are different in some way.  In this workshop, we cover the various types of discrimination and how they can affect people, you will learn how to recognise when discrimination is happening, and how you can make changes to lessen them. You and your team will learn the importance of language, both spoken and body; will learn to recognise and celebrate the differences in each other and how this will improve your interactions with clients and customers.

Mental Health and Self Harm

Self-harm is a growing problem within our communities.  This workshop has been developed to give a brief overview of the issues and provide some suggestions on how to support someone.

Human Rights

In this workshop, you will get an overview of human rights, from the New Zealand legislation to the Human Rights Act, to how to make a complaint. Through activities and discussion, you will be better able at spotting breaches of human rights in everyday life and learn about what you should consider improving your work practice in this area.

Our training sessions can run from 20 minutes to multi-day sessions.

If there are topics not listed that you would like to include, we will work with you to meet your needs.
