From education to employment

Why HR Compliance and Wellbeing matter

HR & Wellbeing

Key HR and Wellbeing topics are more important than ever to reassure employees that they are supported and championed at work.

HR Managers in education have become a crucial part of steering staff through these unprecedented times. Taking a people-led approach and reassuring employees that their safety and wellbeing is paramount, is necessary to navigate this pandemic. Educational establishments that successfully support their staff will not only see greater levels of motivation and productivity but will be in a much stronger position on the other side of the pandemic.

Adopting an inclusive culture and a healthy working environment is crucial for employee performance levels and success. However, with so many priorities for an HR Manager at present, it can be difficult to find an easy solution to ensuring staff are aware of key HR and wellbeing topics at work. Uniting teams has become even more challenging and it is important to not lose sight of maintaining and building a healthy workplace culture. 

“Online training courses to promote essential HR compliance and wellbeing topics offer a simple and effective way to help staff at all levels buy into an inclusive and open company culture, where individuality is celebrated and employee wellbeing promoted,” says Chloe Holland, HR Manager at iHASCO. “The significant benefit of online workplace training is that employees can access it from anywhere, as long as they have a laptop, smartphone or tablet with a 4G or wi-fi connection, allowing your staff to receive consistent and cost efficient training.” 

With the pandemic leading to an increased reliance on technology, many organisations have undergone a digital transformation, and moving training online has been part of that. It has allowed employees greater control over their working day, which in turn promotes a positive and healthy workplace culture even further. “It’s about arming your employees with the support and tools to do their jobs effectively, as well as providing vital information about the workplace values and expectations”, says Chloe Holland.

iHASCO’s HR Compliance and Wellbeing Essentials course provides a concise induction to some key topics including:

  • Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
  • Unconscious Bias
  • Bullying & Harassment
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Mental Health
  • Resilience
  • Stress Awareness

Whilst there are more detailed courses available for each of these subjects, this essentials course provides a perfect overview for smaller organisations, those with a smaller training budget, temporary staff or those requiring a refresher/induction course. With a combination of presenter-led information and animated graphics to engage the learner, this course is the perfect solution for those wanting to bring their employees up to speed quickly and cost-effectively. 

It is clear that dignity and respect in the workplace is vital to create a healthy working environment. This online training course goes some way towards helping staff feel safe, appreciated and motivated, as well as understanding the importance of looking out for themselves and their colleagues.
