Health & Wellbeing
Having a leadership culture, where health and wellbeing is encouraged and supported, is key to ensuring staff are able to enhance and prioritise their own wellbeing.
We know that winter comes with additional pressures that can add strain to you and your staff’s wellbeing, while leaving you with less time than ever to address it. To support you through this time, a summary of key offers has been put together that can help you and your staff during these particularly challenging months. The majority are both bitesize and virtual, to make them as accessible as possible around extremely busy schedules. These represent only a small selection of the health and wellbeing support available, and you can find below a more detailed summary of the rest of this support that you may wish to access now or at a future date.
Please do share this resource with any colleagues who may benefit.
