Staff: Join our upcoming wellbeing sessions

An in-person wellbeing event had been planned on 19 January for staff members at the University, but due to Covid-19 restrictions and associated challenges we have taken the decision to postpone this event until later in the year.

In the meantime, colleagues at Loughborough University are invited to attend two online events related to health and wellbeing. 

These have been initiated by the University’s Occupational Health and Wellbeing team and will be led by external providers who Loughborough is in partnership with.  

Sarah Van-Zoelen, Occupational Health and Wellbeing Manager commented: “Here at Loughborough, staff wellbeing is of the utmost importance. A healthy and happy workforce means a more successful workforce, and we want staff members to enjoy working at our institution.  

“The upcoming workshops aim to support you on your wellbeing journey. We are formulating a programme of wellbeing events which will be held both virtually and in-person over the coming year when it is safe for us all to come together.” 

More information, as well as booking details for the sessions, can be found below.  

Women’s Health Webinar: 19 January, 1pm-2pm 

In this eye-opening session, SuperWellness will share its evidence-based 10 step plan to help women feel a healthier and a more vibrant version of themselves.

Optimal Wellbeing Formula: 19 January, from 2.30pm 

Wellbeing People have designed this webinar to empower colleagues to prioritise and take responsibility for their health, happiness and longevity.  

During the workshop, attendees will: 

  • Learn what optimal wellbeing means 

  • Discover the top ‘lifestyle upgrades’ for mindset, nutrition, movement, sleep and resilience 

  • Create a personal wellbeing plan to improve their own happiness 

  • Experience a self-awareness quiz that will spark discussion and support their action plan 

  • Find out about the optimal wellbeing formula which has the ability to transform their life. 

The session will last for approximately 45-60 minutes and is open for all staff to attend. It will take place online via MS Teams. To register your place, please email Sarah Sargeant at using the subject line ‘Optimal Wellbeing Formula’.  

The Occupational Health team look forward to seeing staff members from across the University at the sessions. Be sure to keep an eye out on the internal newsfeed over the coming weeks to find out more about the official launch of the Staff Wellbeing Cafes. These will be informal, staff-only spaces to offer support, relaxation from the daily stresses of life, as well as an opportunity to meet others.
