Workplace Wellbeing Workshops: places available

Having employees who suffer from poor mental and physical health isn’t just bad for them – it can be bad for your business. Low wellbeing levels in the workplace can affect staff turnover, productivity and motivation.

That’s why we’ve put together a range Workplace Wellbeing Workshops, designed specifically for employees to improve their health and wellbeing at work.

Places are now available for a series of Workshops we’ll be running in June at our Edgbaston training rooms.

Using tried and tested behaviour change techniques, your employees will gain knowledge and skills that should help them to lead a happier and healthier lifestyle.

Worried about staff productivity dipping in the winter months?

We know it can be hard to keep people motivated, especially after the Christmas break. That’s why we’ve come up with a range of tailored Workplace Wellbeing programmes that might just be able to help. Together, we’ll beat the winter blues!

Gateway Health and Wellbeing teamOur qualified, specialised Health and Wellbeing Advisers have been working with people in the community for over a decade, and now we’re sharing that experience with employers.

For years, we’ve seen how better health and wellbeing leads to better resilience and confidence, which in turn helps people at work.

Statistics show that better workplace wellbeing can reduce absence and sickness levels, reduce risk before illness occurs, and improve staff retention and motivation.
