How will you advertise the event: Comms team, marketing posters, word of mouth?
What will the day involve: Training, Massage, Health checks, EAP providers, Occ Health?
Will you be giving away any freebies: Leaflets, Balloons, Samples, Stress Balls, Stress Cards?
Are your stress/wellbeing policies up to date or do they need amending?
Where will the event take place: Training room, canteen, open area?
Will you provide a healthy lunch?
Will you seek delegate feedback from the event, if so who will collate the information
There is lots to think about but the main thing is that you make the day fun and interactive
The first page of the “Defining Outcomes for Wellbeing at Work” is an overview of what wellbeing is and the benefits of improving our wellbeing.
This page is an introduction to the ‘Nef 5 Ways to Wellbeing’ that looks at a set of evidence based actions that help improve personal wellbeing. Evidence suggests that a small improvement in wellbeing can help to decrease some mental health problems and also help people to flourish. This year’s NSAD is looking and ways we can improve our general wellbeing and that of others.
Under each of the headings ask the group/individual to think about 2 activities they can do at home and work that will enhance their wellbeing. The following slides will give you suggestions for each idea.
This exercise is based on a personal action plan and is a follow on from exercise 1 of the Defining Outcomes for
Wellbeing at Work pack.
Ask individuals to complete the action plan for the one area of wellbeing they would most like to change.
By writing the goal down they are making a commitment to being one step closer to improving their wellbeing.
