Course content

Foster a positive workplace culture that’s built for success

At a time when it’s needed most, discover how to create better working environments and relationships across a wide range of industries. Become a catalyst for an organisational working culture that promotes kindness and enables employees to flourish and succeed. Delivered 100% online in as little as 8 months, this first of its kind PG Cert course evaluates the different approaches of kindness and wellbeing from an interdisciplinary and contemporary perspective.

You’ll learn from leading academics from both the renowned School of Psychology and the Business School, ranked 13th and joint 14th the UK respectively (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022). The course also draws on expertise from the Sussex Kindness Research network. Using real world case-studies including those of your peers and your own professional experiences, you’ll critically evaluate the origins of kindness and its links with wellbeing.

Upon completion of the course, you’ll be equipped to mitigate common workplace challenges that undermine staff wellbeing, such as occupational stress and toxic leadership, and will be inspired to create a better working environment for yourself and others.
