Wellbeing in the Workplace

5 Ways to Wellbeing – A Toolkit for the Workplace

The Public Health Unit is pleased to announce the publication of the 5 Ways to Wellbeing – A Toolkit for the Workplace. Contained in the toolkit are five simple and effective ways for employers to help improve employee wellbeing and is based on extensive research. The 5 Ways to Wellbeing are: Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning and Give. These five easy actions incorporated into our day-to-day working lives can help improve psychological health, aid our ability to cope with stress and build personal resilience.

The 5 Ways to Wellbeing can support workplaces in creating a better environment for staff, with better engagement, higher productivity, greater morale and increased job satisfaction. In the words of Professor Dame Carol Black, UK government advisor on health and work: “A business’s most valuable asset is, and will always be, the dedicated staff that devote themselves to delivering the work of the organisation. Healthy and fit staff are essential to ensuring a company remains efficient and profitable.”

Carol Morrison, Head of FIG’s Public Health Unit, added: “Research shows that inspiring and motivating people and teams to build the 5 Ways into their daily lives is proven to boost employee wellbeing. In turn, organisations that focus on wellbeing in the workplace have been shown to be more productive due to their happy, healthy and motivated workforce.”

The 5 Ways to Wellbeing toolkit includes factsheets, tips and tools, as well as useful posters and templates to use in the workplace. Download the toolkit by visiting: http://ww>w.fig.gov.fk/publichealth/public-resources
