Build your ability to influence change

Wellbeing champions like you play a crucial role in the workplace. Typically, champions are employees who volunteer to provide worker representation on wellbeing-related issues in the workplace. Your role can include:

  • Acting as the workplace’s eyes and ears into wellbeing, mental health and stress related issues and can be an early warning system for emerging issues.
  • Acting as culture amplifiers, promoting and role-modelling good workplace culture, psychological safety, inclusivity and normalised conversations about mental health and wellbeing.

Our public Wellbeing Champions Training course is ideal for people aspiring to be a wellbeing champion in their workplace. You could be:

  • In a people-related role such as HR, health and safety or organisational development.
  • A people leader keen to learn how to better support your team.
  • An employee anywhere on the organisation chart, keen to make a difference in your workplace.

This training opportunity has been designed for you! You’ll learn how to harness your passion,  boost engagement, and drive real change.

Janelle Somerville

I did want to drop a line through to say a huge thank you for your time and the session with us, after you left we ended up discussing the topic until well after 6pm and it was just awesome. The whole team took so much from it and really valued your time – thank you so, so much. Worth absolutely every cent.

That was the best professional development opportunity I have attended since starting here at UC. The quality of the content and the delivery was exceptional. A significant reflection moment for me about many concepts covered, it really was amazing – having openly experienced a ‘spectacular burn out’ myself last year I just milked that whole presentation yesterday for the golden messages kind of moment it was…self care practices not being luxuries, the shadow of a leader, healthy caring…I could go on and on!
