Workplace Wellbeing: Stress and Productivity at Work

Manchester Metropolitan University via FutureLearn

Overview

Build workplace stress management skills and learn work productivity techniques

The UK government, businesses, and public health organisations have all backed the case for improving productivity through improved wellbeing in the workplace.

This course draws on contemporary research and consultancy experience to explore how stress impacts workplace productivity and performance.

Firstly, you’ll consider the impact of technological advances on our work schedules. You’ll discover how remote and flexible working patterns may result in an inability to switch off from work and how this can increase work-related stress and prevent the rest and recovery required to stay productive.

Next, you’ll consider individual and organisational differences that may impact the stress-productivity relationship, like differing personalities, thinking styles, and group dynamics, and learn practical workplace productivity techniques.

This course is primarily designed for HR professionals and those in leadership or management positions who want to learn how to improve workplace productivity and reduce stress.

The course will also be useful for anyone who wants to learn strategies to improve their own wellbeing at work.
