Promoting and supporting employee health and wellbeing in a workplace can deliver mutual benefit to people, organisations, economies, and communities. Healthy workplaces help people to flourish and reach their potential, benefitting both the employer and the employee – increased resilience, better engagement, reduced sickness absence and higher performance and productivity are all potential benefits. However, wellbeing initiatives often fall short of their potential because they stand alone, isolated from the everyday business. Our panellists will discuss how health and wellbeing needs to be integrated throughout an organisation, embedded in its culture, leadership, and people management.
The webinar will be introduced by Ami Kotecha, Chair CULS ESG Forum and Co-Founder of AMRO Partners, who will be joined by an expert panel, including:
