3 Learner Well-Being Ideas

Monday, January 31, 2022

Incorporating well-being into training helps promote a workforce culture of wellness and motivates employees to stay healthy, happy, and connected.

1. Begin every course with grounding meditation.


Use your voice to guide trainees through a five- to 10-minute physical relaxation, and help them to focus their minds on the goals and learnings they hope to come away with at the end of the training course.

2. Change the scenery.

Being in the same room for the duration of a training session can make for a stagnant learning environment. If possible, switch to different meeting rooms throughout the training event or consider having sessions in unconventional places such as outdoors on a patio.


3. Get up and move.

During breaks, encourage participants to get up from their seats, go for a quick walk outside, or even do some group stretching and movement. Also consider having learners stand for parts of the course.
