Making a difference to your Organisation

There is growing recognition that improving the mental health and wellbeing of your employees has a significant, positive impact on their performance and productivity whilst reducing staff turnover and sickness. All of which leads to cost saving and increased profitability for your business.

At direction we have developed a series of workplace-specific training courses designed to help your employees and your organisation to flourish and reach their full potential. Each of our courses can be tailored to meet the individual needs and aims of your organisation.
In addition, we provide Workplace Mediation and an Employee Assistance Programme – offering your staff a completely confidential, external counselling service to support your existing HR function.
