People

People are the most important asset of any organisation. They directly impact customer experience and their efficiency, or lack of, impacts on organisational success.

The current political and economic climate and organisational change can negatively affect the mindset of employees – impacting performance, increasing absence and potentially effecting the team around them.

ARK has developed a unique programme of wellbeing training workshops and seminars to address stress management and increase mental toughness.

All delegates attending one of our wellbeing training sessions will receive a free Mental Toughness Assessment (MTQ), a unique 48 item high quality psychometric tool that measures mental toughness and describes the mindset that people adopt throughout their professional and personal lives.

Our range of wellbeing training programmes include:

  • Mental Health First Aider certification
  • Managing stress in you and your team
  • Great managers build great teams.
