WHY FOCUS ON WELLBEING?
Wellbeing in the workplace is increasingly regarded as a key to better employee engagement and leads to sustainable organisation performance.
Research shows that employees with high levels of wellbeing are more successful at work and in their lives. They are more engaged and show increased health, resilience, commitment and morale. The research also indicates that organisations with high employee wellbeing show improved performance, productivity and customer satisfaction.
Organisations that provide opportunities for employees to increase their wellbeing will ultimately have a happier, healthier and more productive workforce and workplace.
To address workplace wellbeing, AUT Executive Education, in partnership with the AUT Human Potential Centre, has developed a four-hour wellbeing workshop. The workshop teaches participants about resilience and how improve their sense of self and wellbeing by allowing them to pause and reflect on their personal strengths, values and purpose. The workshop offers insights on how to be happy, healthy, motivated and ready to work.
The workshop is an interactive and engaging experience offering academic and practitioner led activities designed to educate participants and show them practical applications of the content. The workshop is facilitated by experienced AUT University academic staff who specialise in positive psychology and wellbeing.
