Details

In the Civil Service, our average working time lost due to stress equal 5.8 days per person per year. As leaders, it is also important to be aware of the growing tendency towards presenteeism; when people come to work when unwell and are less productive and effective as a result and struggling to switch off at home.

Taking a positive, preventative approach to wellbeing is now a strategic priority for the Civil Service. Supporting our leaders to understand their role and how they can make a difference overall is a key focus. The Wellbeing Confident Leaders training is a major part of this and is being delivered across all Whitehall departments for Senior Civil Servants and has been incorporated into leadership performance objectives.

The aim of Wellbeing Confident Leaders is to learn the best ways to empower positive wellbeing across the Civil Service. We will be exploring what wellbeing is and identifying the steps we can take as leaders and the areas in which we can make a positive difference to our colleagues’ lives in work and beyond.
