The NEBOSH Working with Wellbeing Qualification
About this Course
Understand the links between work, health and wellbeing, and the role of stakeholders in adopting an organisational approach to employee wellbeing
Wellbeing is important to us all. Our everyday work and private lives place demands upon us that can impact on our levels of wellbeing.
Investing in good wellbeing at work not only helps us as individuals but can also provide many benefits for the organisations we work for, such as increased productivity, reduced staff turnover and less absenteeism.
This 1-day course looks at what ‘wellbeing’ is in practice and the different factors which can influence this in both positive and negative ways. The benefits of good worker wellbeing are discussed, along with the many practical ways in which this can be improved.
Who is this for?
Adopting an organisational approach to employee wellbeing carries with it distinct responsibilities for particular employee groups.
A lack of senior management commitment to wellbeing can be a major barrier to successful implementation. Senior managers are crucial role models, and line managers and employees are more likely to engage with health and wellbeing interventions if they see senior leaders actively participating in them. Senior managers have the authority and influence to ensure that wellbeing is a strategic priority embedded in the organisation’s day-to-day operations and culture.
Much of the day-to-day responsibility for managing employees’ health and wellbeing falls on line managers. This includes implementing wellbeing initiatives, spotting early warning signs of stress, making reasonable adjustments at work, and nurturing positive relationships. Line managers also need to understand the impact their management style has on employees and the wider organisational culture at work.
Employees also have a responsibility for looking after their own health and wellbeing. The workplace can be less stressful but only if everyone participates in the wellbeing initiatives provided by their employer and take care of their health and wellbeing outside work. Employers should be encouraging employees’ to get involved with the support and benefits being made available to them.

“Growing international pressure from leading edge employers to drive wellness as part of corporate social responsibility strategies may encourage businesses to start treating wellness as an integral component of their business model” PricewaterhouseCoopers
“People who achieve good standards of well-being at work are likely to be more creative, more loyal, more productive, and provide better customer satisfaction than individuals with poor standards of well-being at work” New Economics Foundation
