1.3 Your organisational context

Your organisation may already have wellbeing and inclusion strategies in place, but are they just policy documents, or are they embodied by the behaviours and skills of staff at all levels and the values, culture and practices in your physical and digital workplaces? As its title suggests, this course will explore various aspects of wellbeing and inclusion, before considering how you can bring them together to build and maintain a supportive and inclusive hybrid workplace.

To learn about other aspects of organisational development in the hybrid workplace, you might like to study the Hybrid working: organisational development [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] course included in this collection.

Effective leadership recognises the need to embed wellbeing and inclusion throughout the different levels and roles within an organisation. For wellbeing, this could mean diversifying the one-size-fits-all support approach and ensuring that there is certified training available (e.g. Mental Health First Aider), or that chairs of staff support groups are facilitating safe-space discussion and reflection, instead of relying on a single, outsourced, employee support service.
