Did you know that the process of learning has been proven to have positive effects on mental wellbeing?

The five steps to mental wellbeing are well-established, and accepted and widely promoted by health authorities such as NHS England and the Health Service Executive in the Republic of Ireland. One of the steps talks about how learning can improve mental wellbeing by:

  • boosting self-confidence and raising self-esteem
  • helping to build a sense of purpose
  • helping to connect with others

All of our working lives have changed in some way - whether that's our place of work, the type of work we are doing, or stopping work altogether after being placed on furlough, and therefore helping to keep colleagues safe, and in paid employment.

It's important to note that the current crisis around Coronavirus (Covid-19) is just that - current. It will end. And when it ends, we need to be able to approach our work with the necessary knowledge to perform our roles with competence and compliance. And, perhaps, having picked up some new skills along the way.

The UK & Ireland Learning and Development team has curated its huge library of e-learning into a three-phase programme that will support us on that journey.

ABC: building for a new normal provides timely resources to:

  1. Accelerate your learning: a playlist of essential learning, such as Responsible Business Conduct and managing safely
  2. Build for change: resources to guide us through the remobilisation phase, including Office 365 and Unleash, while maintaining a focus on wellbeing
  3. Commit to improve: elements around management skills and further compliance measures

In the coming weeks, we will look for your input on the learning that you will find most useful in the Build and Commit playlists.

We all have a role to play in getting ready for the new normal, and we must all be match-fit to face the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead.

Take the time to engage with learning by visiting Ingenium now.

WasteLESS Week Winners 2020

Food waste at home? Not on Integrator’s watch!

In our previous 2020 WasteLESS Week winner stories, we’ve already explored how we can reduce food waste before it reaches customers, how tackling food waste is positive for communities, and now how we can all combat food waste closer to home.
