You’ve recognised the importance of wellbeing. You’ve announced your strategy and you’re ready to show your people that you care.

Then it comes to the launch of your wellbeing initiative. It starts well and your people are engaged. But after three weeks, you’re worrying: where is everybody?

Your perfect wellbeing strategy is pointless if employees don’t engage – or only engage in the beginning. But why is getting good engagement in workplace wellbeing so hard?

Getting maximum engagement in may take time to get right, but the results are worth it; happier and more engaged employees are more productive.

Based on our panellists’ unique experiences, this session will provide you with insights into key topics, including:

  • Building awareness and engagement in wellbeing
  • How to bring in senior leadership
  • Involving time-poor managers
  • Achieving maximum engagement

Attendees were able to ask questions during the session.

This live session is ideal for anyone responsible for workplace wellbeing, including:

  • HR professionals
  • Wellbeing leads
  • Reward and benefits professionals
