Choices Training and Development. A business solution through 'Dare to Dream' and 'Workplace Choices' programmes
Choices Training and Development can form part of a Health and Wellbeing strategy for any organisation. The course can be tailored to your organisational needs and provide a real solution to the issues you are facing. This workplace wellbeing intervention aims to increase resilience and productivity whilst reducing stress, sickness absence rates and attrition. Choices will provide management skills, methodology and tools to tackle stress head on and manage change effectively, rather than relying on the usual reactive responses when the damage is done!
Stress in the workplace
The opposite pie chart from HSE relates to stress, depression or anxiety by cause averaged from 2009-2012. 12.5 million working days lost due to work-related stress, depression or anxiety in 2016/17
Can your business afford lost days from stress? recovery time for burnout could be as much as 6 months!!
Penny Cole, People Transformation Director at Quilter says;
“The Safe New Futures team bring a deep understanding of how change impacts us all at a very human level and are helping to unlock the potential of our people in some of the most challenging of times.”
Penny explains, “As a responsible business, we asked ‘What we are giving back to the community?’. The opportunity to work with a charity had real resonance with our purpose, ‘to create prosperity for this generation and for those that follow’. What Safe New Futures do fits with that, so it was a great opportunity and one that both of us have really enjoyed.”
Quilter also run its own internal initiative encouraging staff to talk openly about issues such as post-traumatic stress disorder and bipolar to borderline personality disorder.
As Quilter Group CEO Paul Feeney says:
"This is not just philanthropic, it's hard business. A healthy workforce equals a wealthy company."
