Previous research has found that a healthy and happy employee is good for business as he or she is 43% more productive, 86% more creative, 66% fewer of absences than his or her peers. Stress, on the other hand, is the amount of permanent distortion that occurs under excessive strain. It is also the reason that many project professionals are unable to work effectively and suffer from impaired well-being as they constantly struggle with delivering project within time, scope and budget.

Supported by APM’s research fund, a research study led by Dr Clara Cheung, a lecturer in project management from the University of Manchester, is now underway to provide a new lens to improve project performance through measuring project professional’s workplace well-being and identifying factors to enhance their well-being. You can find the details of the details of the study here: https://www.apm.org.uk/news/measuring-what-works-workplace-well-being-of-project-professionals/

As part of the study, Dr Cheung and Ms Jocelyn Davis, a professional well-being consultant from the United States, deliver a workshop to help project professionals and their organisations to improve well-being in the workplace. In the workshop, you will learn the main reasons why manging individual and project teams’ well-being in your workplace is a long term solution for enhancing project performance, what drives workplace well-being, and some powerful and lasting work practices to embed in your everyday work life.

Key takeaways include how to:

  • Evaluate your well-being level

  • Avoid the biggest mistake that almost everyone makes

  • Make resilience the key to drive workplace well-being

  • Get more work practices which work and less of those which don’t for cultivating workplace well-being
