This practical workshop is a follow-up to Dr Helen Fitzhugh’s webinar ‘The spangle trap’: How to improve workplace wellbeing without the resources of Google’. In the webinar, she introduced 5 principles for implementing good workplace wellbeing initiatives. Where the webinar focused on the evidence base for following these principles rather than falling into the trap of ‘shiny’ but ineffective gestures towards worker wellbeing, this workshop goes a step further. It helps you take stock of how far along the journey you are of setting up a workplace wellbeing programme in your organisation and determine next steps. It will be an interactive session, limited to a small number of participants to allow peer-to-peer discussion and learning. 

This workshop will cover:

  • A reminder of the 5 principles for implementing good workplace wellbeing initiatives
  • Discussion and interaction between attendees on the benefits and challenges of embedding this approach in their organisation
  • Tips and practical suggestions on how to identify your next step towards greater workplace wellbeing.

Takeaway

It does not matter where your organisation is on its workplace wellbeing journey – whether just starting out or advanced - there are always useful next steps you can take to improve your approach.

About the Speaker

Dr Helen Fitzhugh, Senior Research Associate and Knowledge Exchange Fellow at University of East Anglia.

Dr Helen Fitzhugh of Norwich Business School is passionate about organisations and research communication. She gathers the best academic evidence she can find on workplace wellbeing and productivity and then distils it down into practical information and resources for organisations as part of a project called the PrOPEL Hub. She draws upon work by researchers at the University of East Anglia who have been researching in this area for decades. Helen has worked across the public, private and voluntary sectors, so bring with her an understanding of how to adapt complex research findings so that they make sense to real-life workers and managers in a variety of different settings.
