Time to Plan for 2022
Hard to believe another year is almost at an end.
Have you started making plans for 2022 as yet? Whether you’re working from home, HQ or a hub next year, I can guarantee you that wellbeing will be high on the priority list for your people.
To help with your planning, I’ve documented all the resources, education and training that you can avail of from The Work Well Community in this article.
Whether you’re a leader, a champion or an individual there is something for everyone at The Work Well Institute and Work Well Community in 2022.
For those responsible for the development, delivery and improvement of the overall wellbeing programme, the 8 Steps to Embed a Culture of Health programme takes participants through an evidence based 8-Step Framework for sustainable workplace wellbeing programme development.
This is your starting point.
Wellbeing should be a shared value across the organisation, not something that is owned by one person or team. A team of wellness champions can support wellbeing leader(s) with the programme development, communication, organisation and feedback. The Wellbeing Champion training is delivered live through Zoom across 4 x 2 hour workshops. N.B this course can be tailored and delivered for organisations just starting out or for those looking to re-invigorate an already established wellbeing champion team.
Feeding Your Potential (Brand New)
Fuel your body for work and play. ‘Feeding Your Potential’ is a Workplace Wellbeing Nutrition Course that empowers colleagues to make healthier choices with the tools and the knowledge to do so.
Self-Care for Working Parents (Brand New)
On this course, Clinical Psychologist Dr. Malie Coyne supports working parents to balance the many demands placed on them by helping them to cultivate compassion for themselves and their children, whilst creating a healthy work-life balance which truly aligns with their values.
We can achieve well-being within our work and personal lives if we are equipped with sufficient resources to balance against the daily demands we face. In this evidence-based module, underpinned by the Job Demands Resources Model and Conservation of Resources theory, Dr. Jennifer Hynes explores the psychological, social, physical and financial drivers of well-being in life.
Just like an athlete, or any leading performer, if you want to win the day, it’s critical that you start on the right foot. That’s why morning routines are so important. They prime you for the day ahead, motivating you, energising you, and helping you to take positive action as you go about your day. Join Brian Pennie as he highlights key techniques including gratitude, visualisation, affirmations and mindfulness to demonstrate how routines don’t have to take time, they make time.
Much like Wellbeing & Mental Health, our live workshops are not just for special occasions. We offer a) The 5 Ways to Wellbeing b) Positive Mental Health Conversations c) 5 Components of Physical Fitness & d) Sustainable Workplace Wellbeing all year round and we can also develop bespoke workshops and lunch and learns to meet your requirements,
parkHIIT is a social enterprise with a vision to advance physical, mental and social wellbeing for people of all ages and backgrounds by promoting the importance of resistance exercise in community based public spaces.
We also offer midweek workouts for organisations that want to support the physical wellbeing of their colleagues. We can do this online or on site, depending on your location (and restrictions)! If you’d like to support a social enterprise while at the same time supporting the physical wellbeing of your colleagues then check out parkHIIT @ Work.

On The Work Well Podcast we interview workplace wellbeing thought leaders and industry professionals to discuss how employers, employees and entrepreneurs can lead the way by creating and sustaining the healthy, safe and well workplaces of the future.
We have a back catalogue of webinar material that would make Mick Jagger weak. You can catch up on any of our Work Well Webinars on our YouTube channel.
If you’d like an introduction to the 8 step framework for embedding a culture of health then this webinar is where to start.
If you have questions on any of the above programmes or resources then reply to this email. As we’re approaching the festive season (and to make my life easier from a planning perspective) I will discount any or all of the courses above if you sign up before the end of this year.
Give the gift of wellbeing to your colleagues this Christmas 🎄
I’m sure you have a lot going on at present so thanks very much for reading all the way to the end of this article. I know there’s still uncertainty in the air but I am genuinely excited by the opportunities that are out there and will continue to do all I can through The Work Well Institute and the Work Well Community to promote wellbeing in our workplaces throughout 2022.
Yours in health,
