Discover the secret to workplace wellbeing with our interactive, talks and workshops.

It really does pay to invest in the wellbeing of your employees.

Who says? Well Deloitte for one. In a 2020 analysis they reported that for every £1 an employer spent on mental health interventions, they got £5 back in reduced absence, presenteeism and staff turnover – and it could even be as high as £11 in some cases. Caring actually boosts productivity!

Which is why it’s worth giving careful consideration to the full range of bespoke stress management and positive wellbeing services Geraldine Joaquim has to offer.

Tailored solutions that make your workplace work well
Geraldine’s services are not focused on helping people recover but on the prevention of poor mental health full stop.

It’s about coaching good habits into staff and instilling coping mechanisms that build resilience.

After all, stress happens… but people will only build resilience when you give them the skills to self-manage it. By being more aware of their personal wellbeing and that of their colleagues, then they will find a clarity which will help improve decision making, boost productivity and create a better working environment all round.

Because individual resilience feeds into organisational resilience, making it a work-wide culture.
Before we undertake all our interactive talks and workshops, we spend time getting to know what you want to achieve and who your employees are. That way our experienced and qualified trainers can tailor the content to suit your specific wellbeing objectives.

It has never been more critical for business leaders to embed a culture of wellbeing in their organisations, where employees can feel happy and looked after. And through on-going guidance and support, Geraldine Joaquim is here to ensure that your mental health strategies continue working successfully long into the future.

On the subject of mental health…
Here are just some of many topics we have covered in our bespoke talks and workshops (but we’re always happy to discuss new ideas and your specific needs):

The Art of Communication

Communication lies at the foundation of all relationships, it’s the key element that drives our ability to connect with others – but it’s also the one that goes most awry leading to misunderstandings, an over-reliance on unconscious bias, relationship breakdown. And there’s a secret ingredient… it’s what motivates you (and others) to get things done. When you have that piece of the puzzle, you can not only motivate yourself to knuckle down and focus, but you have the key to motivating others – essentially you can get people to do what you want them to… And when you add understanding people’s motivation to the subtle art of communication, well, you’re unstoppable!
