Background

Investing in wellbeing makes business sense. Today, employers must support a diverse workforce of employees who are working until later in life and with increasing health risks. A healthy, happy and engaged workforce drives sustainable performance and productivity, benefitting employers, employees, customers and makes communities more resilient.

This event will focus on taking a preventative whole-person, whole-system approach to health and wellbeing that gives employers and employees collective responsibility.

This event will feature a busy Wellbeing Expo with themed exhibitor zones aiming for a minimum of eight exhibitors per zone featuring experts who will guide delegates on the key aspects of wellbeing and provide help and information on:

  • – Physical and mental health
  • – How you can create healthy workspaces that are restorative and enriching for both physical and mental health
  • – Making the case for wellbeing at work
  • – Embedding wellbeing into an organisation’s culture, taking a whole person approach
  • – Tackling the stigma of mental ill health

The programme is designed to ensure the Wellbeing Expo is a key feature of the conference, with time built into experience what each Zone and exhibitor has to offer.

SDG linkages
