Is there such a thing as work / life balance?
Remembering training on wellbeing & resilience, just before the Covid-19 outbreak where the facilitator made a bold statement ‘there is no work life balance, there is just life’.
An argument against this sentiment is we should recognise that our work & life are separate entities & we should strive for a ‘healthy’ balance for our mental health & wellbeing & we should not work all the hours etc?
Failing to understand (at that time) we only have one life & our lives don’t stop when we get to work or start when we get home. We have just one, continual life & work is an element of that life. An element that we should be sure to include but not to prioritise to the detriment of all else. So, should we really be asking the question not how to gain a better work life balance, but how establish a life balance which is right for us?
The Harvard Business review published an article in 2021 discussed research into the idea of work life balance as a cycle, one which we should be continually engaged with as our life priorities shift. The research contained 5 steps to the cycle. We recognise the need for tracking & monitoring any changes we implement, following our refocusing as an essential element of making sure that the work/life balance we’re establishing is working for us.

One year ago, Ben Wakefield joined WELL! Ben was thrown in the deep end with mostly a team of very chatty ladies, but he has coped very WELL! Ben's technical knowledge has been very insightful for his learners through the introduction of new presenting software & skills, most recently using AI, for new ways of working. Thank you Ben, we hope the last twelve months hasn't been too painful!


Nicola Baxter (aka Mrs Claus) spent the day with Italian-influenced coffeehouse Caffè Nero HiPer Managers at their Head office in London this week. The session took a very seasonal turn when their project management topic was based around setting up a Christmas grotto but not to tip the learners over the edge with too much Christmas talk, Nic also advised on their EPA expectations & portfolio evidence. The future Caffè Nero Area Managers, making Nero's future bright.


National Inclusion Week, Thursday's take action – embedding inclusion. It’s important to take a step back & dive into the work your organisation has done so far this week & to make sure work is being done to embed inclusion. However, it can be a challenge to embed real change throughout an entire organisation. Start by breaking down your organisation structure, understand each role & how inclusion is part of each role. Next, tackle your biggest issues & agree a long-term plan. Take action to embed a positive change!


National Inclusion Week, Wednesday’s take action – empower your employees. Empower employees to speak up, constructively challenge & share feedback. Do your employees feel safe, listened to & valued for their contributions?
Do you know that we deliver an Impactful Feedback programme, designed to focus on supporting employees to create & participate in continuous feedback, delivering in a way that brings positivity & empowerment. From a 2022 Impactful Feedback programme 95% of employees trained stated they were very confident to provide Impactful Feedback by the end of their workshop. Is this what your employees need? Contact us to find out more [email protected]


Testimonial Tuesday from Linda Xiong, external Facilitator. Linda delivers two Mandarin programmes to Edgewell Personal Care employees (to-date 300+), Impactful Feedback & Foundation Academy.


National Inclusion Week & todays 'Take Action' - Does your company have effective inclusive policies & processes in place? Do your employees know what is expected of them in your inclusive working environment? Do you have effective training for employees to close the skill gap? All of which is essential for inclusion to become an accepted part of the organisation.
If the answers to those questions are no, we can help you Equip Your Employees! Contact us to find out more about our Equality, Diversity & Social Inclusion training [email protected]


Why not discuss these ideas with your employees today - action & make an impact as a team for National Inclusion Week.


This week is National Inclusion Week ‘Take Action, Make Impact’. Take this week to demonstrate employer commitment to employees, clients & stakeholders. Think about what actions you can take & what impact these actions could & should have for employees, clients & stakeholders. Be mindful when thinking about your actions & the impact of making inclusive decisions.

What actions will you take & what will be your positive impact?

WELL Training Away Day 2023; bringing the team together, to encourage lateral thinking, to improve wellbeing, build on teamwork skills & make memories in the glorious sunshine with the ideal setting of NPF Pole Adventure Park. A morning spent discussing 2022-23 achievements, new targets & exciting times ahead, followed by axe throwing & laser shooting (Ben Wakefield, a clear winner in both activities), perfect activity hosts in Jay & Brad, who made the afternoon with lots of laughs (mainly at the team!), what a brilliant day & thank you!
