• Workforce Wellbeing




    A staggering 11.3 million working days were lost in the UK last year due to stress, depression or anxiety (HSE).


    Companies are legally required to address work-related stress under the Health & Safety at Work Order (NI) 1978 and Health & Safety (Management at Work) Regulations (NI) 2003. And the emotional health and wellbeing of your team could also be covered by employment and equality legislation such as the Disability Discrimination (NI) Order 2006.


    There is also a growing realisation that supporting positive mental health is simply good business.


    So if you are:

    • Concerned about sickness and absenteeism;

    • Considering ways to increase productivity and customer satisfaction;

    • Trying to create a harmonious and supportive team...

    Workforce Wellbeing provides Emotional Intelligence Training to your Human Resources and Management teams, Wellbeing Seminars for all staff, and confidential Counselling Services to individuals in need of support.
