Workplace Wellness - Tangent Trinity's Ideas Workspace
Do you have an interest in health and well-being and a drive to promote this in your organisation or a wish to move into the area of employee and workplace wellbeing? On this practical Postgraduate Certificate in Workplace Wellness, you will learn everything you need to develop and coordinate effective programmes that align an organisation's values to employee wellness, ensuring engagement and buy in from senior management and staff alike.
It is well established that a healthy workforce is a happier one with low levels of absenteeism and greater productivity. Never has this been more relevant than in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. Employers across the public and private sector are developing healthy workplace policies to support the health and well-being of their employees. Public sector companies and agencies, which employ 15% of the total workforce, are being encouraged, in line with the Health and Well-being Bill (introduced in 2016), to make their workplaces healthier and support staff to be more physically active.
Promoting a culture of well-being gives employers the incentives, tools, strategies, and support to adopt and maintain healthy behaviours in the workplace. Promoting the transversal skills of self-management, resilience and personal effectiveness (highlighted in the National Skills Strategy 2025), this course offers organisations, managers, and individuals the opportunity to up-skill in the area of workplace well-being.
This course is different to any other wellbeing offerings available nationally. It will explore the evolving nature of work environments (e.g. remote and hybrid) and people led wellbeing programmes are a key focus of the curriculum. Graduates will be equipped to develop wellbeing programmes to meet the needs of diverse employee populations and demographics.
This course has two separate intakes commencing in September 2022. It will be a blended delivery of in-person and online classes, which is taught via a combination of masterclasses, workshops and project-based learning. A part time course delivered over an 18-week period, participants will learn everything they need to help develop and coordinate effective wellbeing programmes.
