What is the JOY programme?

There has never been a more important time to build and nurture your employee wellbeing.

The Joy Programme is an internationally CPD accredited course (14 credits with the CPD Standards Office). It provides nominated roles within your organisation with the capabilities needed to teach their colleagues how to incorporate positive psychology strategies into their busy day-to-day lives.

By upskilling existing roles to take on a responsibility for employee wellbeing, the capabilities to teach mindfulness, kindness, gratitude and joy demonstrate measurable KPI's. This results in building a sustainable, cost-effective wellbeing culture in-house. By financially investing in just a few employees can benefit the wellbeing of the whole workforce.
