Wellbeing Series Part 3: Workplace Wellbeing - HP237

This is the third session of a three-part wellbeing series. Check out Part 1: Self-care 101 and Part 2: Building Resilience.

For us to succeed at work, we need to understand how we can be our best selves, and that includes understanding how we can focus on our wellbeing at work. Health, particularly mental health, has become a topic of significant interest and concern in today's society. UBC is taking a lead in advancing wellbeing and a collaborative effort is underway to make the University a better place to live, work and learn through a systems-wide approach to wellbeing across our campuses.

This session will explore the strategies, tools and resources available to support your individual wellbeing as an employee. Using the Okanagan Charter and the National Voluntary Psychological Health and Safety Standards as a framework for action, there will also be an opportunity to discuss and learn about how workplace wellbeing can be enhanced through our everyday interactions, practices and operations.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of health as a positive concept;
  • Identify characteristics within a supportive workplace environment;
  • Gain resources and strategies for planning and action to support workplace wellbeing (individual and department/unit level); and
  • Learn about key resources and services for supporting employee wellbeing.
  • All staff, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows are welcome.

    This session will be facilitated by Crystal Hutchinson, Workplace Wellbeing Strategist, and Miranda Massie, Health Promotion Specialist in UBC's Human Resource Department.
