The IPA, in collaboration with Karen Belshaw MSc Psych & Wellbeing, has designed and developed a two part webinar series on Wellbeing for People Management Professionals with the following focus:
- Part 1 – Self-Care for People Management Professionals
- Part 2 – Strategies to Promote Wellbeing in Organisations
Wellbeing as a People Management Priority
It is recognised that the cost implications of poor wellbeing among employees in the workplace are far greater than absence and reduced productivity. They include failure to attract and retain top talent, employees not working well together, high levels of absenteeism and presenteeism and poor performance.
The benefits of well-designed wellbeing strategies and initiatives can be seen as achieving three very positive outcomes for people and their organisations as follows:
- Increased Productivity and Motivation;
- Team Development and Increased Morale;
- Decreased Work-Related Stress.
The impact of Covid-19 has been significant in terms of our roles and responsibilities as people management professionals and in terms of the expectations of employees in relation to their health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace. In view of this the focus on wellbeing as a people management priority is seen as timely and appropriate.
