If the quality of the university student experience starts with the quality of services provided by university staff, how are the workforce at your HEI doing? What impact did the ‘pivot to online’ and the processes and practices that have followed have on staff wellbeing? This course will explore what workplace wellbeing means in a hybrid working world – whose responsibility it is, the challenges involved in creating and maintaining it, and the benefits it brings to your organisation.

Is your organisation inclusive, diverse and a champion of equal opportunities? EDI (equality, diversity and inclusion) is often derided as ‘political correctness gone mad’ or a legal requirements box ticked, but this course emphasises the critical role it plays in achieving a culture of wellbeing, and invites you to consider it as an investment in the most important asset your organisation has: the people who work there.



This course is part of the Supporting hybrid working and digital transformation collection (Wales), made possible by the Higher Educational Funding Council for Wales.
