Foundations of Wellbeing is an online, science-based wellbeing skill building course for workplaces. It is a 10 week, 10 module course with each module taking approximately 50 to 60 minutes to complete.
In each module, participants are challenged to understand and learn a new wellbeing language (wellbeing literacy), topics, ideas, and to experiment with a range of skills to see how they fit within their own situation.
Learn what wellbeing actually means – this module is designed to help participants become ‘wellbeing literate’ and encourages them to start exploring what wellbeing means to them.
Learn how to identify and define personal strengths through a variety of frameworks and understand how using them enhances wellbeing.
This module covers the stages and processes of behaviour change, motivation, goal setting, tiny habits, values and making changes to enhance wellbeing.
Learn about factors that impact our resilience, how to build it and factors that impact resilience at work.
This module walks participants through accomplishment and its connection to wellbeing and goals, and how to set and work towards achieving our individual goals.
This module teaches participants about how emotions impact us, how positive emotions can be cultivated and how to manage negative emotions.
Being present and engaged at work is a learnt skill. In this module, participants explore flow and mindfulness, and learn how to improve workplace engagement.
Relationships and wellbeing are inextricably linked – workplace relationships are no exception. Learn the characteristics of good workplace relationships, along with the skills and strategies for building strong ones.
Finding meaning is something we all seek but is often hard to find or define. This module does exactly that – defines it, gives examples of sources of meaning and connects meaning with wellbeing.
Here’s where the learning gets tied together and applied specifically to the workplace; this module explores self-monitoring, being proactive, setting goals, taking care of mental and physical wellbeing, building relationships at work and seeking support as required.
Foundations of Wellbeing is entirely online and the course material is presented in an engaging and interactive way via written content, images, graphics, videos, animations and guided reflection questions, as well as periodic wellbeing assessments to gauge change. There are also knowledge-based assessments, learning checkpoint activities and reflection and discovery activities throughout the program.
Participants come away from the course with foundational knowledge in wellbeing science, as well as the tools and skills to apply this new knowledge into their lives and workplace environments in a personalised way.
Healthy employees means: fewer sick days, higher productivity, higher retention rates and more innovation. Why? Because healthy people are happy people. And happy people are better employees.
