Participants at The MooreHouse Workplace Wellness Refresher Training
The health, well-being and safety of workers are crucial concerns all over the world, especially to employers that care about their employees. The wealth of a business depends largely on workers’ health and they will achieve healthier lifestyles when prevention and wellness programs are accessible and available in their workplace.
In order to bolster and promote the health of employees across Nigeria, YEDI designed an innovative training program tailored to provide information and raise awareness on the health needs of clients by training private sector workforce. The Workplace Wellness Training (WWT) covers health, wellness, global practices on personal hygiene, etc. for employees using innovative means to deliver the message and encourage behavioral change in the area of personal hygiene and prevention of HIV/AIDS, malaria and other infectious diseases.
The customized training provides access to health information and services in the area of public health and endemic diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Hepatitis A, Cholera, Dysentery, etc.
The training comprises outdoor and indoor group activities that allow for the transfer of knowledge that will enable the employees to acquire the necessary information to make informed decisions, modify their behaviour but also to transmit such information within their families and communities.
YEDI uses innovative means to deliver the message
The WWT was piloted in 2013 when the employees at MoorHouse, a Boutique Hotel in Lagos as well as members of staff of Nordic Hotel Abuja, were engaged. And since then, several refreshers training have been conducted with a revised edition of the curriculum.
