Workplace Wellbeing for Managers

Raise mental health awareness at work

Our one-day course has been specially designed by Vix Anderton to support managers in businesses of all sizes – from SMEs to larger corporates – seeking to build a culture of workplace wellbeing.

“As managers, we always want to get the best out of our teams and allow our people to reach their full potential”, says Vix. “This means we need to create workplaces that actively promote wellbeing and mental health awareness. Inclusive workplaces embrace this and do what they can to support the mental health of their employees. Poor mental health, on the other hand, often leads to absenteeism, presenteeism or under-performance, so we need to be confident and competent as people managers in addressing a wide range of mental health issues.”
