Become a Supporter

Being Well Together is the new integrated solution for all your health and wellbeing needs. Becoming a Supporter shows your employees and peers that you are committing to improving your people’s health, safety and wellbeing and in doing so are supporting Think Talk Together a leading UK charity focused on promoting positive mental wellbeing across workplaces.

Why become a Supporter?

No matter what size your organisation is, the sector or location, poor employee health and wellbeing directly results in poor organisational wellbeing. That means working days lost, decreases in productivity and effectiveness of employees, increased presenteeism and increased risk of accident or injury. It can also significantly impact on workplace culture, employee turnover and brand. Being Well Together in partnership with mental health specialists Think Talk Together from Mates in Mind, is here to help you navigate through the steps you need to take, to achieve the best outcome for your organisation and your people.

The first truly joined up approach

There has never been a better time to embrace the health and wellbeing of your workforce. With businesses embedding a ‘new normal’, we know that a coordinated, sustained and integrated set of interventions delivered as part of a holistic organisation-wide programme is the most effective in delivering both short and longer-term benefits. Starting with a plethora of benefits and interventions may not be enough or effective no matter the size of the investment.

Tailored and flexible solutions

Our Being Well Together programme will enable you to assess your current requirements and health and wellbeing provision, understand any gaps and explore the most effective measures for you, helping you build a plan. Our expertise will support you every step of the way, with a dedicated support manager to help you interpret the findings, access research, resources and campaign materials, as well as signposting to reputable sources and understanding best practice. This will save you time, provide assurance and above all enable you to get the most effective results from your investments. We look to both support you in creating your ideal approach, whilst recognising any existing provision.

Resource Hub+

To really take your programme to the next level, we recommend that you consider upgrading to Resource hub+. Resource hub+ puts at your disposal a huge and growing library of resources.


What is it?

Resource Hub+ offers ‘point of need’ digital wellbeing resources organised into 11 topic areas as follows:

  • Diet and nutrition
  • Drugs, alcohol and smoking
  • Financial wellbeing
  • Introduction to wellbeing
  • Isolation and loneliness
  • Mental health
  • Parenting / caring
  • Physical activity
  • Presenteeism and leaveism
  • Sleep
  • Stress


Who is it for?

The resources are primarily aimed at your employees, but there are also resources for managers and senior leaders too.


What are 'point of need' resources?

Classroom teaching sessions usually aim to deliver a number of learning outcomes. During the training the teacher is able to present information regarding those outcomes but isn’t able to test understanding fully. Even if there is an opportunity to demonstrate understanding, this is done in an artificial way. As such, information covered in the training is mostly forgotten over time.

‘Point of need’ resources are there to help people put into practice something that they have learnt before. They support the learner while they are applying the learning, perhaps some time after the initial learning took place, this could be on-the-job or as and when needed.

Wellbeing is an area that lends itself well to ‘point of need’ resources, as everyone has different needs. Classroom sessions need to be broad and general in their coverage and some things may only become needed once there is a problem.

Note: Resource Hub+ resources are designed both to support classroom learners and to be used independently.


What is included?

Videos

Informative videos, 2 to 5 minutes in length, provide information and tips about a topic

Interactive exercises

Interactive learning segments, where learners can explore and receive feedback

Self-assessments

A series of questions that allow a learner to assess areas of need within a topic. Learners are provided with a score against which improvements can be measured

Quizzes and knowledge checks

Tests a learner’s knowledge in an area. Can be used before or after learning has taken place
