Course Overview

Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace are becoming a growing priority for many business leaders and HR professionals. Mental illness in the workplace leads to decreased productivity, increased sick-related absenteeism, poor work quality, wasted materials and even compromised workplace safety.

While it’s not HR’s responsibility to manage their employees’ personal lifestyle choices, they can improve employee well-being within the workplace by implementing a wellness strategy for their companies to ensure employees' psychological, emotional, and social well-being and thereby creating a healthy and thriving company. 

If your company understands the importance of improving both the well being of the company and the employee, this course is for you.
