Creating and maintaining successful health and wellbeing programmes in the workplace is the focus of new guidance for Division of Occupational Psychology members published today by the British Psychological Society.
‘Wellbeing at Work: A Guide for Occupational Psychology Practitioner’ features practical advice on the ways to prevent staff health and wellbeing problems and promote positive lifestyles.
The guide will help newly qualified occupational psychologists, trainee occupational psychologists and experienced occupational psychologists who want to know the latest health and wellbeing research.
Dr Bridget Juniper, member of the DOP Psychology of Health and Wellbeing Working Group that created the guidlines, said:
“Maintaining staff wellbeing is vital for a productive and successful workplace. Our new guidance provides psychologically informed practical tips on how to improve wellbeing in the workplace along with practical examples.”
The guidance is free to Division of Occupational Psychology members.
DOP members and MSc Occupational Psychology students can also join a free one hour webinar exploring the themes of the guidance on the 23 February.
