“We’re trying something new and feel this is a great opportunity for college staff,” says Michele Laurin, one of the members of the Wellness Committee. “This stems from conversations we have been having on campus and areas of interest that have been expressed.”

Shepell is a Canadian company that offers a wide range of workplace training webinars. The Wellness Committee team chose six that will discuss issues like stress relief, goal setting, happiness and dealing with change. Each webinar is an hour long and will take place during the lunchtime hours.

“We think it’s a great way to spend an hour of your day,” says Laurin, who works in the Human Resources Department as the Pensions and Benefits Officer. “There is something for everyone in this series and we hope staff will take advantage of this chance to build on ways to make their daily routine more manageable.”

The webinars are free and include a live expert who conducts an interactive session.

The topics being explored include:

  • Boosting Your Positive Outlook – February 16
  • Setting and Achieving Your Goals – March 4
  • Care for the Caregiver – March 18
  • Welcoming Change Into Your Life – March 30
  • Is Happiness a Journey or a Destination – April 15
  • Living Well with Stress – April 29

The webinars take place at Castlegar Campus (S 113), Tenth Street Campus (P 315) and Nakusp Learning Centre (First Aid Classroom). Bring a pen and paper.
