How to plan an employee event or programme

We can create employee wellbeing programmes designed to work with existing initiatives, local and even national events. Here are some sample modules along with some national events in 2018 that will put workplace wellbeing in the spotlight.

Breaking an employee wellbeing programme down into themes and topics

It’s useful to start with an overarching theme and develop from there

Here are some ideas…

Are your people crazy busy? Techniques and insights that reveal how to stop procrastinating and get the real job done.

Ways to manage energy levels and build your resilience.

Ideas to get the most out of working with, or leading, a team.

A chance for individuals to experience a one-to-one coaching session and set some goals.

Have a go at yoga and how to use simple postures to raise energy levels, improve focus, or reduce stress.

Meditation and breathing techniques to help refocus and find ways to destress in the busy work day.

When’s a good time to run an employee wellbeing programme?

There may be internal dates, such as staff conferences, or after a major sales initiative

But national and international themes can also provide a good “hook”…

There is an increasing emphasis on the need for greater awareness of mental health, particularly in the workplace. The week is marked but a range of local and national initiatives and events.

Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. It takes place from 1st-7th June every year.

First celebrated in 2012, Global Wellness Day is a social project dedicated to living well. This year it takes place on Saturday, June 9th, 2018 in more than 100 countries at 5,000 different locations.

Don’t be afraid to have a little fun with your theme. World Chocolate Day (sometimes called International Chocolate Day) occurs globally every year on the 7th of July.
