gold-enterprises is an industry leader within its domain of practice, drawing on 12 years of gold’s experience building capacity in organisations to empower youth and young adults as opinion leaders to become positive role-models and agents of change through an evidence based behaviour change methodology using the mechanism of peer education .

gold-enterprises believes that we have an opportunity to change social norms and behaviours and address the significant social and economic people challenges faced by workplaces across emerging markets head on. It is our dream to see people of all ages aware of their potential and translating this potential into reality, living healthy, purpose-filled lives and contributing to transformation in their communities and workplaces. We believe the methodology of quality peer education can achieve this vision.

Peer Education – Workplace

Behaviour Change in the workplace

The Peer Education Workplace product offering is focused on the mechanism of peer education. This involves harnessing executive and middle management leadership capital to design and implement workplace peer education and transformation interventions that result in sustained changes in norms, culture and processes in line with the organization’s individual strategy.

Peer Education Workplace is gold-enterprises’s flagship workplace behaviour-change and capacity-building product suite– it’s made up of a set of comprehensive DIY life skills and leadership-development manuals (with supporting videos) for use by peer education managers, transformation managers, human resource managers, trainers and or adult peer educators, for the purpose of workplace behaviour and cultural change.

Effective Peer Education is a dynamic process where well trained workplace opionion leaders within their workplace and community context achieve significant goals, including increasing knowledge and skills on critical issues influencing workplace culture and behaviour, especially behaviour that is influenced by peer group norms.

Peer education as a methodology, whether used in higher or lower level teams within the workplace and the surrounding communities, relies heavily on the quality of training of peer educators. However, many organisations and private companies who want to harness the power of peer education don’t have the resources to develop a full peer education programme. Peer Education Workplace is a comprehensive training and capacity building toolkit that provides an option for those looking for a lower cost training solution that they can implement themselves, but which still harnesses the benefits of peer education for their company and is based on evidence based peer education standards and lessons learnt through 12 years of the tried and tested gold model.

Peer Education Workplace resources are well complimented by the additional menu of training and capacity building courses, the minimum of which is a 5 day behaviour change course (accreditation optional).

Peer Education Workplace resources cover a diverse range of topics related to self-development, health and wellness, leadership, relationships, as well as HIV and risk behaviour prevention. Tailored to meet the needs of a wide variety of industry contexts, Peer Education Workplace integrates the best practices of the gold model in a way that users can adapt these based on their scope and needs.

Even if you don’t want to implement a full peer education or workplace transformation programme, you will find our training sessions helpful in delivering a life skills programme. gold-enterprises can also offer its consulting skills to help you develop your own content based on your specific desired outcome of change.
