Freelance wellbeing workshop facilitators required

We’re excited to announce that Haptivate is expanding its network of workshop facilitators. We’re looking for reliable and enthusiastic freelance facilitators to support the delivery of wellbeing workshops to our workplace clients.

About Haptivate

Haptivate was founded in 2018 with the intention of taking some of the really fantastic and exciting academic research about the science of wellbeing and getting this information into more people’s hands. We decided to focus on workplaces because the average person spends 80,000 hours of their lifetime working, and we want to support people to lead happy and meaningful working lives. 

Our workshops are highly interactive, fast paced and scientific. We provide a safe, fun, non-judgemental space for people to share their experiences and learn from each other. We share the latest scientific research and best practices using high-quality slides and visual aids.
