Health and Wellbeing Management Essentials

Session Overview:

This workshop is aimed at all leaders and managers within the University who have direct line management responsibility for colleagues.

Using a combination of case studies, stories and management information, this is an interactive training workshop for managers to develop their understanding of the University’s approach to staff health and wellbeing. The workshop introduces the case for health and wellbeing and why it is so important that we work with our leaders and managers to support their staff. This course is led by colleagues from the Wellbeing, Safety and Health Service who will be joined by service leads from Occupational Health, Staff Counselling, Sport & Physical Activity and Sustainability towards the end of the session to meet participants and provide information about each of their respective areas.


This workshop will develop leader/manager understanding about the importance of health and wellbeing and how to support our University staff community. Our face-to-face course is open to all managers and is repeated several times per academic year. Managers are also welcome to request a team-based version of this event for their staff, if appropriate
