Wellbeing at Work: Enhancing Employee Engagement and Productivity

Wellbeing at Work: Enhancing Employee Engagement and Productivity

11th June 2020 | Central London

 

Workplace wellbeing and employee engagement are key in ensuring that staff can produce their best work. There are notable rewards for effectively addressing employee wellbeing, including increased staff motivation, morale and retention, reduced absenteeism, lower costs, and ultimately a more sustainable workforce. Indeed, FTSE 100 companies who actively address employee wellbeing consistently outperform their counterparts who do not.

Wellbeing is multi-faceted, encompassing mental, physical, financial, environmental and social health. Robust and comprehensive policies and action, as well as education and understanding, are therefore essential if organisations are to optimise employee wellbeing and organisational performance. 

Our upcoming ‘Wellbeing at Work: Enhancing Employee Engagement and Productivity’ event will provide HR professionals and line managers with the practical advice and insight needed to make wellbeing a workplace priority. Expert speakers will shed light on practical steps which employers can take to holistically address wellbeing at work, and ultimately maximise both staff satisfaction and organisational outcomes.
