TRAINING FOR MANAGERS AND HR PERSONNEL

Managers in the workplace have a key role in determining the occupational outcomes of workers who become unwell. They are responsible for implementing adjustments for working conditions  under HSE regulations and are in a position to help, influence and prevent long term disability - but can also be in a position to do more harm with inappropriate responses or inaction.

 

Trends show Professional Managers are most likely to encounter stress related ill health than any other worker industry (HSE 2018) . At least partially due to the ever increasing demands and responsibilities for the health and well being of their employees/

 

Recent research suggests that managers who have received training on such initiatives- value  the knowledge and feel more confident in approaching mental health issues after training. In addition, the employee’s of the same managers are far more likely to have reduced levels of psychological distress and a greater sense of well being.

 

Our bespoke training for managers is designed to equip and inform Leaders who want to become empowered to make a positive difference to their departments and organisations.

 

Our objective is to help you reduce the overall amount, frequency and length of mental health related absences - reduce lost days of work and increase work performance and productivity. 

 

Our training supports mangers to grow into mentors, to be more effective in monitoring and delegating workloads, they become more responsive, improve communication and have better relationships. Our delegates will learn to master the process to manage employee’s who overloaded, lacking or losing control over projects, those who have trust issues, and those who have a pre-existing anxiety, depression and other mental illness. We take a closer look at managing expectations, setting realistic goals and encouraging growth as a means of maximising productivity.

 

Knowledge of mental health and non-stigmatising attitudes alone are proven to be effective tools to significantly improve morale and create trusting, open and harmonious work spaces.
