Workplace Wellbeing (An Organisational Psychology Approach - Online)

Overview

Overview

Wellbeing is a core value of most societies, albeit conceptualised, defined, and promoted in diverse ways. Deriving primarily from a psychological perspective, this course introduces participants to a socio-technical systems model of workplace wellbeing, contextualising the organisation’s role between individual’s own wellbeing management, the services, infrastructure and policies in society and the physical infrastructure and technological environment.

The course aims to provide students with:

  • An understanding of what the workplace wellbeing is and how it can be measured.
  • The ability to conceptualise the organisation as a socio-technical system with wellbeing as a key outcome.
  • An understanding of the psychosocial, organisational, contextual, and societal factors influencing wellbeing.
  • An appreciation of leadership and change management strategies needed to design and deliver effective wellbeing initiatives.
  • The ability to apply their knowledge to evaluating wellbeing initiatives.
