As a nation, we have slowly started to see elements of the COVID-19 lockdown come towards an end, and many businesses and workplaces have been able to open their doors again. Suppose you are a manager or a senior staff member in an office; it is crucially important to be aware of the wellbeing amongst colleagues to ensure a positive working environment when your office opens back up.

How to promote mental health and wellbeing in the workplace

Heading back into the workplace will be a big transition for everyone - for over a year, many people have adapted their lifestyle to working from home and seeing fewer and fewer people, so returning to an office with colleagues and a new set-up will be a significant change for all.

Having an awareness of best practices and ways to ensure positive employee wellbeing at work will make the transition easier for your staff members, and help you spot any signs of mental health issues before they become a more significant issue.

It may also feel overwhelming and daunting as a manager of the office, as there are a lot of pressures to ensure staff feel comfortable and happy on return. Some conversations are not the easiest to have or approach, and these conversational skills do not always come naturally. By enrolling on a course or a workshop, you can ensure that you are following the best advice and taking the best possible approach when it comes to wellbeing at work.

CPD Courses – mental health and wellbeing

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. CPD combines different learning methods such as online courses, seminars, workshops, conferences and events, all focused for individuals to improve their professional abilities. Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and qualifications do not become outdated, and allows each individual to continually upskill regardless of their occupation, age or educational level.

At The CPD Certification Service we have a whole range of CPD providers that offer mental health and wellbeing training courses and workshops with CPD accreditation and recognised as suitable for Continuing Professional Development.
