A resilient organisation prioritises the wellbeing of its workforce and takes a systemic approach to reducing stress and enhancing job satisfaction. The KFP Wellbeing is defined as where:

  • Practitioners perceive a deep commitment to their wellbeing; wherever possible, stress is reduced at source and working conditions improved.
  • Reasonable adjustments are made to support practitioners to work in ways that suit their preferences and circumstances.
  • Practitioners feel able to thrive in a job that is rewarding and manageable and make a difference to people who access services.
  • For these reasons, people are committed to the organisation and their role within it.

Reflective questions:

  • Is there support available to practitioners if they have a difficult experience at work?
  • Is there a range of services available to support health and wellbeing in your organisation?
  • Would practitioners recommend your organisation as a good place to work?
