Masterclass Online - Workplace Wellbeing Strategy - Build a Plan on a Page for 2024

Rolling natural and unnatural disasters, cost-of-living and other pressures are leaving our teams, and ourselves exhausted. Some organisations are also discovering they’re not compliant when it comes to having a mentally healthy workplace.

In this 60-minute masterclass, our workplace wellbeing specialist Leanne Hart will run you through our Wellbeing Strategy toolkit to help you review your existing strategies, and/or add new strategies to prevent and protect your team and volunteers from harm.

Leanne will also give you a tour of The Community Well resource hub, where you can access resources, tools, assessments & policies to support wellbeing, leadership & governance in 2024.
