Can a Workplace be a Well Place?

Improving workplace wellbeing is becoming a high priority to strengthen employee experience and address mental and physical health risks. However, many organisations and leaders remain uncertain about the risks, responsibilities and opportunities in this space. Our breakfast will draw upon perspectives from public, private and for purpose sectors to ensure your wellbeing interventions are evidence-based and effective, not just "tick the box" initiatives.

We encourage you to join us for our upcoming panel event and breakfast Can a Workplace be a Well Place? Our panelists will discuss practical strategies for fostering wellbeing amongst staff, the latest trends and research in this space and what organisations can do to measure and understand it within their organisations.
