Event Overview

Workplace wellbeing relates to all aspects of working life, from the quality and safety of the physical environment, to how you feel about your workplace, colleagues, and organisation.

Your wellbeing is a key factor in determining your organisation’s long-term effectiveness. Studies show a direct link between productivity and the general health and wellbeing of the workforce.

Even on your best days, stress can prevent you from being fully focused and unable to complete tasks to the best of your ability. Too much stress can often lead to burnout, disengagement, sick days, and strained relationships within the workplace.
