The PeoplePlus YouCan Wellbeing Collection is designed to improve the wellbeing and inclusion of diverse employees in a wide range of circumstances, contexts and workplaces.
Inspired by statistics that reflect life in the UK now, every module aligns with a real need. Fresh content is created by PeoplePlus and delivered by our dedicated Wellbeing coaches. Each experience is delivered over video conference to remove geographical barriers to attendance.
The range of modules enable managers to take a proactive approach to wellbeing. By fostering understanding of some of underlying causes of disengagement, interventions that could prevent employees reaching crisis point are made possible.
Our approach delivers high levels of relevance, impact and timeliness.
Among our current suite of over 20 modules are:
- Midlife MOT
- Financial wellbeing
- Making Time for Holidays and Breaks
- Sensory overload
Module durations and delivery packages are flexible. Solutions can be tailored over a twelve-month period as a themed collection or delivered as a stand alone offer. Lived experience, PeoplePlus Wellbeing coaches, public health research and insight from our employer network inform the module content.

Financial worries and instability can directly impact work performance. As the cost of living crisis continues, providing people with financial information has become a necessity for maintaining workplace wellbeing but is a very sensitive subject that can trigger strong emotions. This module helps to support general knowledge and understanding of the pathways open to people so that they can make informed choices.
Topics covered include:
• the role of money management.
• how financial habits can impact wellbeing - understanding signs of financial anxiety.
• how to create savings plans and budgets.
• working with experts to create solutions.
• avoiding taking on debt that can't be sustained.
• first steps in tackling debt.
Various durations including a 60-minute (one-hour) workshop.
Making Time for Holidays and Breaks
88% of UK employees have experienced at least some level of burnout over the last two years, with one third claiming to suffer from physical and mental exhaustion frequently due to pressures within the workplace, according to HR News.
Discussing this openly and looking at how any break from the everyday routine can reduce the likelihood of burnout can benefit people at all levels of the organisation. Understanding down time and finding space for it can improve mental health and wellbeing for all, and a culture that doesn't support these behaviours is counterproductive.
Topics covered include:
• The importance of planning a break from the norm.
• Dealing with the counterarguments raised by yourself and others.
• Looking for role models who do work/life balance well.
• Adding protected time to your working day, week, month or even year.
1 x 60 minute (One-Hour) Session.
We believe a wellbeing offer that promises to make all staff happy and healthy is unrealistic. So many factors are beyond an employer's influence. Instead, a successful wellbeing offer should improve the workplace for all and support conditions where everyone feels able to succeed.
Our approach makes it possible to demonstrates how highly you value your staff as individuals, for their own unique contributions.
Feeling valued engenders security, which promotes loyalty. When communication is positive, trust can grow, and problems can be solved. When problems are kept in perspective, team members can be more productive. Achieving on goals and targets together helps team dynamics and culture.
Employers who make sure their teams have the space and time to participate in their wellbeing programme benefit most.
The YouCan Wellbeing Collection can be the ideal addition to your employee support package - or the whole solution.
