HSW 43: Happy People Pilot Program with Sharon Richens.

Happy People Program?  How good does that sound?!  Considering a happy workforce is always going to be way more productive when morale is high, and staff are feeling well, my first impression when I heard about this program is that it sounds too good to be true! 

Just to put things into context, when I posted a link to an article on my Facebook page titled – ‘Pilot Program Launched to Support Hospital Shift Workers’ there was an overwhelming response from shift workers all over the world.

Like myself, they also wanted to know more about this program, so in today’s episode, I had the pleasure of chatting with Sharon Richens from Happy Body At Work, who is heading up this pilot program based out of Melbourne, that is designed to support hospital shift workers.

Sharon shares with us some of the specifics of how this pilot program worked, how it was delivered, who was involved, and some of the key industries that she hopes to extend the program too – in other words, not only to nurses and midwives, but to an array of different shift workers from various industries.

What I love about this amazing initiative, is that this program is all about YOU, the shift worker, and provides personalised tips on how you can take care of yourself whilst working in what can be at times, and incredibly challenging occupation.
