HRD Roundtable: What will it take for wellbeing to be taken seriously?

Despite employee wellbeing having risen higher up the board agenda since the pandemic, business leaders still have a long way to go to truly realise the potential impact of putting employee wellbeing at the forefront of their strategy. Keeping employees healthy and happy doesn't just lower absence, it also has a huge business impact on everything from retention to supply chains and profit margins.

We recently partnered with theHRDIRECTOR to deliver an insightful roundtable session which saw leading HR and People professionals come together to discuss the future of employee wellbeing.

We were delighted to be featured in the December 2022 issue of theHRDIRECTOR, the independent, thought-led publication for senior HR practitioners. We hope you enjoy the article on pages 16-22 (linked below). If you find value in their content and would like to receive it each month, we can offer you a £50 discount when you subscribe in print by using the promotional code CONTRIBUTOR.

Thank you to all delegates who took parnict in this debate, and to theHRDIRECOR's Jason Spiller for chairing the discussion.

Key points of discussion:

  • What are the mental health impacts and risks currently facing the workplace and how should this be approached at a strategic level?
  • What is the role of line managers in optimising employee health and wellbeing?
  • Should absenteeism be benchmarked?
  • How are employees' expectations of employers changing?
  • What does your wellbeing strategy need to look like to provide a sustainable future?
