Workplace Wellbeing Champion Training

Overview

Cost: Free

A wellbeing champion is there for colleagues when they need a listening ear, signposting on where to go for specialist help if needed, providing a point of liaison to nip issues in the bud, and driving a healthier workplace culture. It follows a peer-support model, where the focus is on being available, and being willing to provide information and signposting to support, while not taking-on the role of problem-solver or counsellor – we encourage participants at all stages to know the limits of their role and to be aware of when further support is required for an individual.

At RCS, as part of our support and consultancy programme within small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs), we have identified the potential benefits of having an individual staff member trained up and confident to fulfil the role of Wellbeing Champion, alongside their usual role.

We have developed this training course for representatives of smaller businesses and third sector organisations to have the same opportunity to support their colleagues in this way. In 2019 we delivered our first all-day training session to a group of new Champions, who have gone on to make a real difference within their teams and workplaces.

This exciting development opportunity has the potential to grow your skills in empathetic and active listening, signposting, planning and resourcing events and activities, and helping to grow a wellbeing strategy within your organisation. We highly recommend that you discuss signing up for this training programme with your leadership team / line manager, as the role of Wellbeing Champion is most effective when carried out in partnership and full agreement with the management team.

 

If you work for an SME in Conwy, Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion or Carmarthenshire, you should be eligible to take part in this course free-of-charge. If you think your organisation is already registered on our Enterprise Support scheme, please email wellbeing@rcs-wales.co.uk instead of completing the Eventbrite registration. If you are new to us, please complete the Eventbrite booking form, and we will be in touch soon with more information.

This course has been developed by the RCS Enterprise Support Team, part of the In-Work Support Service, funded by the European Social Fund in partnership with Welsh Government. Therefore is it only free-of-charge for representatives of Small-to-Medium Enterprises based in Conwy Denbighshire, Gwynedd, Anglesey, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire or Pembrokeshire.

If you work for an organisation with more than 250 employees in Wales, or you work for an SME in Wales outside of those 7 counties, please email wellbeing@rcs-wales.co.uk for information about a not-for-profit fee structure to take part in this programme.
