Wellbeing Seminar

Wellbeing is certainly something that companies are now starting to talk about which is a great thing.  And no wonder, looking after an employee’s wellbeing, not only gives you a happier well-rounded employee more equipped to deal with the daily stresses of a working day, but it saves the company money with a higher rate of employee retention.

Employees who have emotional and physical health are more likely to be committed to their jobs. Because they feel supported and appreciated by their employers, they are more willing to go that extra mile, knowing their efforts will be rewarded.
The benefits of wellbeing are clear, but how as employers do we create the right environment to look after our employees, and as an employee what are the things we can do to improve our mental and physical health?
