Are you looking to run an online Lunch and Learn session for your remote or hybrid workforce?

We offer three different one hour virtual 'Lunch and Learn' style sessions for employees on resilience, mental health, and wellbeing. We deliver these sessions as three different lessons:

· Resilience and Change

· Mental Health at Work

· Practical Tools for Wellbeing at Work

These sessions are delivered online via video conferencing, allowing you to easily share important lessons on mental health awareness with your entire workforce.

Employees will benefit from all three lessons, so we typically recommend that sessions are held once a month over three months. No previous knowledge is required for any of these sessions, so if a staff member were to miss a workshop, they would still be able to participate in the next one. However, we do recommend that staff engage with all three sessions to help retain knowledge and maintain momentum.

How do online Lunch and Learn sessions work?

We typically run the sessions over Zoom, which we’ll fully organise. If you’d prefer to organise the meetings internally, we’re also happy to join using Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts or any other virtual meeting provider.

Connect your employee wellbeing strategy to your remote workforce

Engaging your employees with your employee wellbeing programme isn't easy if they’re not always in the office. That’s where our Online Lunch and Learn sessions can really help. They’re a less formal way of helping you to connect with your remote workforce, making them feel included while teaching them essential wellbeing skills.

They’re a break from the norm as you’ll be raising awareness of mental health in a fun, absorbing way. Attendees also appreciate that the focus is on them – not only developing their knowledge but also, ultimately, improving their wellbeing.

The sessions are often very popular with employees, and can tie in nicely with wellbeing awareness days such as Mental Health Awareness Week, World Mental Health Day and Stress Awareness Day.

The online Lunch and Learns can also serve as an opportunity to signpost your well-being services to your remote workforce. Good wellbeing services to direct them to might include your Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), gym/fitness discounts, Mental Health First Aiders, virtual GP services or any other relevant wellbeing benefits. By raising awareness of these services, your employees are more likely to use them. They’ll also be able to point colleagues to appropriate services should they have any concerns about their wellbeing.
