Championing Organisational Health & Mental Well-being Needs

A unique five-week virtual learning course with live e-coaching sessions.

25 August to 22 September, 9.30-11.00am (SG time)

Course Introduction

“54% of all MCs and absences are due to Stress, Depression or Anxiety, costing companies about 1 month salary for every 3 employees each year.”

– Health and Safety Executive, UK 2019

The trends in the world point to a future where 40% of adults will be obese, and poor mental health and well-being will also become more common based. Based on current statistics, 1 in every 5 people will experience some form of mental disorder at some stage in their life, which is likely to contribute to workplace conflicts, poor work performance, unfinished deadlines, poor teamwork and cohesion.

Organisations are left with the inevitable burden of poor employee health, which costs tens of millions every year. The good news is, these risks are highly preventable and manageable! The winners of businesses in the future will be those with the healthiest employees. Investing in your employees to be Healthier and Happier will give companies the competitive advantage to Survive and Thrive!

This course is targeted at HR practitioners who would like to understand the impact of mental health and wellbeing on organisations, and develop and implement a future-ready workplace that nurtures good health and mental wellbeing. Over a 5-week period, participants will complete a series of coursework on our learning management system Uniqskills, and be coached by our trainers every week to move their implementation plan forward.

All courses help you learn, but not all courses make you do. In five weeks, you will:

  • Complete five hours’ worth of online lectures on mental health and wellbeing in the workplace
  • Be aided in your journey by downloadable workbooks
  • Test your knowledge for each module through a series of MCQ tests
  • Be coached by our experienced trainers who have led national-level mental health initiatives in organisations and communities through weekly e-coaching sessions to help you apply your learnings to real-life situations.
