Wellbeing at Work Conference

The Event

Learn from the experts and create an engaged workforce, improve productivity and reduce absenteeism

The Wellbeing at Work Event is a one-day conference in central London for HR & business leaders. Come and learn from experts and peers about the latest wellbeing developments and successes that are enhancing individual and organisational performance in companies across the UK and the World.

Global communications and technologies are changing the world of work and employers are continuing to ask more of their employees. The Wellbeing at Work Event aims to provide a forum for businesses to hear, meet and discuss wellbeing initiatives with leading experts and practitioners to equip businesses with the tools to introduce or improve wellbeing programmes in the workplace.

The Event will include a programme of influential speakers, debating panels, workshops and networking sessions where delegates can ask questions, exchange ideas and share experiences on a subject that will change the world of work forever.

  • Increase staff attendance

    An average sized firm with 250 employees is estimated to make an estimated loss of £250,000 annually, due to sickness absenteeism.

  • Outperform your competitors

    FTSE 100 companies that prioritise employee engagement and wellbeing outperform the rest of the FTSE 100 by at least 10%.

  • Improve staff retention

    A highly engaged workforce has the potential to reduce staff turnover by up to 87%.

  • Learn from the experts

    Over half of workplaces still have no formal mental health policy, even though it costs UK employers around £26 billion each year and is one of the top five reasons for long-term absenteeism.
