Employee wellbeing workshops

Employee Wellbeing

At Green Shoots Learning we believe that Employee Wellbeing should be at the heart of every business.  Employee absence can be a huge challenge and burden for employers.  With stress being a major cause of absence in the workplace and costing UK businesses over £5 billion a year and work related stress forming part of the UK HSE's management standards, it's more important than ever to take wellbeing seriously.
