The business case for managing the wellbeing of employees is irrefutable. Organisations that value the safety, wellbeing and health of their employees improve their engagement, retention and productivity, in turn promoting their brand image and their profitability.

This conference will showcase best practice and key trends in workplace wellbeing and stress management. With speakers from leading businesses in the public and private sector, it will offer HR, OH and wellbeing professionals insights into how industry leaders have designed and implemented successful wellbeing initiatives. Topics covered by the conference include:

  • Promoting mental health: What can companies do to reduce stress and avoid mental health problems among employees?
  • Workplace culture: How can businesses create a workplace culture that fosters open communication and wellbeing for all?
  • Emerging trends: From financial wellbeing to gender equality, what are the key areas HR professionals need to focus on at a time of cultural change and growing uncertainty?
  • Demonstrating value: How can HR professionals prove the value of wellbeing initiatives to the business to gain executive support?

The conference will offer case studies and practical takeaways presented by professionals who are pioneering novel approaches to wellbeing. You will have the chance to discuss current issues and practical problems with experts on workplace wellbeing and stress management and engage in interactive knowledge-share sessions. There will also be plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues and leading professionals.
