Samaritans’ workplace wellbeing training, Wellbeing in the City, has been shortlisted for a Learning Technology award in the ‘Excellence in the design of learning content’ category.
The prestigious awards recognise the most cutting-edge and impactful learning technologies from across the world.
Developed with learning solutions creator, Brightwave and supported by the Lord Mayor’s Appeal, Wellbeing in the City is an emotional support programme for UK employees, bringing Samaritans’ expertise into the workplace. It’s an unforgettable e-learning experience which permanently raises the bar.
The online resources build resilience, give employees the courage and confidence to intervene when someone is struggling, the skills to actively listen and practical suggestions on how to manage difficult conversations. They also help people to manage their own wellbeing.
Lucia Capobianco, Senior Learning and Development Officer at Samaritans, said: “We’re so proud to have been recognized by the Learning Technology Awards. Thousands of people have signed up to Wellbeing in the City and it’s already making a big impact on people’s lives.
“Our aim is to help people who are struggling, before they reach crisis point. Giving the workforce wellbeing and listening skills creates a network of support, so no one feels they have to cope with difficult thoughts or feelings alone.”
