The rise of employee wellbeing in a post pandemic world

Webinar | Thursday, 22nd July 2021 11:00am BST | HR Grapevine & Legal & General

You are watching on demand.


The pandemic has meant that the health and happiness of employees has shot to the top of the leadership agenda, with 82% of companies now considering employee wellbeing a priority.

Employers have a great opportunity to examine their culture and look at how they can integrate their benefits, help their employees access support and, through better communication, make that support ‘relevant’ to their employees.

Employees want to know that their employer has a clear purpose with regards to their wellbeing and that they’re given the signposting and support to the tools they need to stay healthy and happy in work – it’s about building trust!

This webinar will explore:

  • The post-pandemic wellbeing trends and challenges

  • How employers can respond to these trends and challenges to build trust, and meet the wellbeing needs of employees (panel discussion)

  • The importance of communication and engagement in improving wellbeing and engagement with wellbeing services in your workplace
