2017/18 - Staff Wellbeing Projects 2017/18 - Staff Wellbeing Projects Resilience Training The Older People’s Directorate introduced a set of resilience training sessions for their staff following funding agreed by the Charity Committee. The aim of the workshops were to: Help team members feel well equipped to manage their energy and wellbeing, and to support their colleagues Help people understand why they may react differently to stress, and what we can do to support them Learn practical methods to apply to teams under pressure They also provided a space to talk through personal approaches to stress management and reflect on how stress impacted on them in and out of the workplace. The initial workshops carried out during 2017/18 supported 140 people in the community hospital sites and the feedback from attendees was positive. Most feedback showed increased feelings of resilience following the workshops and a better understanding of how to manage stress for themselves and others. The training has been recognised as having a positive impact on staff wellbeing and other directorates have been developing their own approaches to resilience training throughout the year.
