World Wellbeing Week - 5 Steps to Wellbeing  

This week is World Wellbeing Week, running from the 24th – 30th June.  To mark this week our People team, covering Leadership, Skills and Social Impact will be talking about the 5 Ways to Wellbeing toolkit.  Research carried out by the New Economics Foundation found that there are 5 simple steps you can take to improve your wellbeing every day, they are: 

1. Connect 

2. Be Active 

3. Learn 

4. Take Notice 

5. Give 

Our Leadership, Skills and Social Impact programmes can help businesses to use these themes to not only improve the wellbeing of their workforce but to build people strategies and practices that transform their workplace culture – improving leadership capabilities, bringing the best out of the team, enhancing diversity, and creating positive social impact.
