Black Country NHS ICB Testimonial

NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG (the name of the organisation prior to changing to the ICB) is an organisation that prides itself in looking after its staff and developing them; both with the skills to do their job and the tools to be resilient.

In 2018 we trialled the Thriving at Work programme in two ways: small group introductions to the programme and one to one attendance on the 10 week programme.

We could not have predicted the phenomenal response to this programme and the positive impact it has had for our staff and our organisation.

With a large scale launch of the programme, the feedback and recommendations spoke for themselves and requests to attend the programme grew beyond our expectations and became the hallmark of our positive and proactive support for staff.

The personal programme has supported our staff in a number of ways; confidence, resilience, proactive self-care, ability to challenge themselves and the organisation in a positive way.

The wider impact of the personal development has meant that there is a critical mass of staff who are able to lead others, both formally and informally, in a way that has ensured that we have a resilient workforce that can approach thinking to challenges in a different way – solution based, positive impact and resilient.

Most notably the programme has become the first proactive well being programme that staff are accessing before going into personal crisis, this means that staff are personally looking after themselves and proactively accessing support in a way that enables them to shift thinking before the stresses of life and work becomes unmanageable – which has also enabled them to support others to do the same.

I cannot recommend enough this programme and Paul himself to support any organisation where it recognises the importance of its people at the heart of its success.
