Wellbeing is an overused term which means all things to all people and it tends to be ill-defined and misunderstood. It’s often the ‘soft and fluffy’ side of wellbeing which is the focus of interventions and whilst such interventions are beneficial to individuals, they’re unlikely to result in long-term sustainable organisational effects. Organisations need to address wellbeing in the same way as they address safety, by identifying and eliminating the primary risks to wellbeing. We also need to start thinking about wellbeing in a different way and recognise the crucial role wellbeing has as a business improvement tool.
This presentation focuses on Creating Wellbeing ™ by discussing:
- What wellbeing is and its relationship to safety, leadership and engagement
- Why organisations should focus on Creating wellbeing ™ rather than managing stress and psychosocial risk!
- The Yeoman-Bizzell Wellbeing Culture Development Model
- How to develop wellbeing cultures
- Assessing wellbeing and engagement
- Wellbeing Interventions
