Workplace Wellness: Flipping the Training Experience
Time and timing is a factor for most employers, when it comes to Wellness Workshops. Our system allows employees to work you do on their own time, if the employer is unable to allot time. If an employer wants employees to engage more deeply on the topic, they can then coming together to discuss and master the material. It is suggested that employees learn the videos and materials at home.
Wellness Connection looks holistically at the lives of employees. Healthy workplaces contribute to your overall well-being. Stress at home, stress at work, personal health issues, workplace inter-personal relationships, family well-being, workplace bullying, mental health issues, work-life balance, workplace safety, to name a few, are all issues that impact an employees ability to do his or her job effectively.

Why use a Self-Directed Learning Model
The Wellness Connection Workplace Wellness Program allows everyone to select topics and issues that directly effect them. There are topics in this section that may, or may not, effect you personally but they may be an issue for a co-worker. For example: It has been said that financially stressed people, who have debt issues, spend up to an hour a day working on how to deal with their debt. Even when they are not working on it, their thoughts are processing the issue. This means it effects their work. That is only one example of how what is happening in other areas of your life effect your ability to do your job. Wellness Connection offers a system that is flexible and enables both employees and employers to benefit from something that can address a wider scope of needs and interests.
Formalizing the Process
If there is a topic, which the employer or a supervisor, feels is something that all employees (or a group of employees) needs to study and discuss formally the suggested process would be as follows:
- The supervisor would select the topic and send the url to the employees
- The employees would review the topic (and videos) usually on their own time, as homework, by a scheduled date.
- The supervisor would schedule a meeting which would take place immediately following the date the ‘homework’ is to be completed.
- The supervisor would moderate a discussion relating to the topic and the group would agree on some goals relating to the topic, to implement the learning into their day-to-day activities.
The topics include videos from a variety of coaches and trainers with expertise in the related field. While Wellness Connection does not endorse any of the coaches/trainers, Wellness Connection welcomes and encourages employers to explore further training through these coaches or trainers – especially if you are impressed with the knowledge and style of the coach or trainer in the provided videos. The topics provide videos from more than one coach or trainer to provide a richer learning experience.
