Implementing A Positive Workplace Culture

Implementing A Positive Workplace Culture

Implementing A Positive Workplace Culture

Psychological presenteeism (people coming to work but under performing because of their lack of concentration due to stress) is the major challenge for organisations. The costs of this form of presenteeism are estimated to be between 1.5 and 3 times the costs of sickness absence and staff turnover.

The approach to preventing psychological presenteeism is to build a culture that promotes commitment, trust and engagement, known as A Positive Work Culture, as this will heavily influence the way managers and staff interact with each other, as it is evidenced as reducing and eliminating psychological distress at work.

This seminar provides the steps and approaches to implementing this form of culture.
