Programme Content

Fundamentals of Workplace Wellness

This module sets the context for the programme by exploring the role of health promotion within the workplace and nature of wellbeing. We will explore the business case for wellness programmes and the fundamental characteristics of successful wellness programmes based on research and case study examples from leading organisations.

Organisational Culture

This module explores what a culture of health looks like and how to establish and build one, or engage in a change process towards one. Students will examine the critical role of leadership support, strategic communication, the social and physical environment, and policies and practices in building a culture of health. These critical factors will be explored using evidence from benchmarking research and case studies from award-winning organisations in the area of employee wellness internationally and within Ireland.

Project and Policy Implementation

In this module students will visit up to four different organisations to gain an understanding of the wellness programmes in operation at their workplaces and to meet with those implementing the programmes. Individually they will craft a workplace wellness operating plan and in project teams they will develop solutions for a real-world challenge being faced by a host organisation.
