Getting Started with Employee Empowerment and Wellbeing: Understand the link between workplace empowerment and employee health.

Empowerment in the workplace has many benefits. Research has regularly demonstrated that when employees feel empowered at work, it is associated with stronger job performance, job satisfaction, and commitment to the organisation.

Empowerment is based on the idea that providing employees with the resources, authority, opportunity, and motivation to do their work, as well as holding them accountable for their actions and supporting their wellbeing to make positive lifestyle changes, will increase resilience and performance at work.

The feeling of importance and trust leads to better and more productive work. However, sometimes it is difficult to know exactly how to ensure your employees feel this way.

This webinar offers insights and simple steps that you can take towards empowering employees and supporting their wellbeing. 

This webinar will cover:

  • Explore what empowerment means
