Supporting Staff Wellbeing in the Workplace

Supporting Staff Wellbeing in the Workplace

11th June 2019 | Central London

Research has proven that the wellbeing of staff has a direct impact on their performance levels and engagement. Staff are also increasingly conscious of company values when making important employment decisions.

Poor workplace wellbeing has been found to cause a decrease in productivity for 63% of employees in the UK, whilst 21% of workers leave their jobs because they feel that the company culture does not align with their personal values.

With only 10% of UK organisations having a stand-alone wellbeing strategy, and just 17% of these evaluating their impact effectively, organisations must take greater responsibility for the wellbeing of their staff.

This Diverse Workforce event in partnership with the Institute of Internal Communications will supply you with the tools and strategies needed to reap the benefits of a healthy, motivated workforce.
