Tangent at Trinity - Masterclass in a Shared Ownership for Wellbeing



It is widely accepted that workplace wellbeing is fundamental to establishing a happy, effective, and productive workforce, but who is responsible for managing workplace wellbeing? Balancing sole ownership and shared responsibility for wellbeing between an organisation’s leadership team and its workforce is essential.

Wellbeing should be a shared and celebrated value across all organisations. A diverse group of wellbeing advocates or ‘champions’ can act as highly motivated custodians for an organisation's wellbeing strategy and the future wellness of its workforce.

This masterclass will introduce the concept of shared ownership for wellbeing and how collective responsibility for employee wellbeing supports implementation. You will explore the importance of building a wellbeing network and how to develop an inclusive, collaborative and empowered team of wellbeing champions. You will also examine the role of leadership in cultivating wellbeing and how ethical leadership practices can promote wellbeing engagement and build a robust culture of wellbeing at work.

This course is designed for individuals interested in developing a wellness programme in their workplace. This includes professionals such as senior leaders, HR professionals, occupational health professionals, facilities managers, and health and safety managers

What are the Course Objectives?

On completion of the masterclass (one three-hour workshop), you will be able to:

  • Identify the different voices, opinions and roles that should be included in your wellbeing network.
  • Define the role of a wellbeing leader and champion at your organisation.
  • Upskill a team of employees to work alongside the wellbeing leader in the development, delivery and improvement of wellbeing within your organisation.
  • Identify leadership tools that are necessary to cultivate a resilient and effective culture of wellbeing.

On completion of the masterclass a Certificate of Completion will be provided.
