The Project Is To Design A Workplace Well-Being Project For Your Organization: Workplace Wellbeing Assignment, TCD, Ireland

The project is to design a workplace well-being project for your organization. The project will be carried out step-by-step throughout the module. As part of each week’s session, you will be prompted to define a part of the project, so that by the end you will have all the building blocks and just need to put them all together.

You will have one week after the last session before your submission deadline. The objective is for you to demonstrate your learning from the course in a practical tangible form that will be useful to you and your organization after the end of the course. You may even be able to go on to implement the project or something similar in your organization.

We have put together some questions for each session to guide you into the information we are looking for within your project. The topics covered in each session should have a word count of minimum 400 words.
