Resilience for Health

Resilience for Health

Overview

Do you want to minimise stress levels amongst your team?

Are you looking to reduce high staff turnover and increase productivity and professional development?

Resilience for Health is a necessity in modern business to enable maximised productivity, reduce sickness/absence and staff turnover. The workplace is an ever-changing environment, where stress factors are always going to be present in one form or another – it is how we deal with them that will ultimately make a positive difference to individuals and organisations. This module reflects the need of organisations to teach employees how to use a balanced blend of mindfulness and resilience techniques to help them manage change, reduce stress and anxiety and dramatically improve working life, to the benefit of both employees and employers.
