Wellbeing in the workplace: organisational strategies for the post-pandemic world
Friday 24 September 2021, 3.00pm to 3.50pm BST
The COVID pandemic has triggered a radical shift in the nature of work. With this, mental and physical health at work have become even more important challenges. As some degree of normalcy returns, the rise of the hybrid office will still require organisations to strongly rethink their approach to employee well-being. In this event, we will share data from existing research projects to show how work patterns have changed, and we will discuss strategies for managing mental health in a holistic way.
