A to Z to Better Wellbeing Team
We are Team Chaffinch, 8 civil servants and aspiring junior leaders across government departments who met in June 2017 at CS Local ESEL Junior Leadership Academy as part of a year-long programme. Our aim is to support the vision to be ‘A Brilliant Civil Service’, making it a great place to work with a commitment to Health and Wellbeing. We know that wellbeing is valued by our senior leaders and colleagues alike and this is why we researched, designed and delivered a toolkit that brings together the latest information on wellbeing and can be accessed in one simple and easy click. Our aim was to make wellbeing fun, easy and accessible for all Civil Servants. This interactive toolkit includes:
- 26 wellbeing topics from A-Z
- Featured wellbeing activities from journaling to walking
- Links to further learning including CS Learning courses
- Top tips suggested by our team and fellow civil servants
- and a fun wellbeing fact
This project was undertaken alongside our day jobs and involved working across departments. The toolkit can be used by individuals and teams to help improve wellbeing. Our research suggested that stress and Muscoskeletal problems were top reasons for absence so we included these in our toolkit.
