CMI Level 7 - Strategic Wellbeing and Resilience Programme

A positive, high performing, and engaged workforce is the bedrock of any successful organisation. Our people are our greatest asset, and it is inherent upon leaders to take good care of them. The impact of COVID-19, and associated changes to working patterns, job roles, and in many instances, job security, has produced a once-in-a-generation level of challenge for leaders and managers, who have to balance the needs of the organisation with the psychological wellbeing of their team.

In the past 18 months, resilience and wellbeing in the workplace, and our duty of care to our colleagues, has become a central concern for organisations. In response to this, we have developed this pioneering, post-graduate accredited workplace wellbeing Programme that will blend practitioner level awareness with the strategic capabilities to change and influence organisational policy and culture.
