Positively influence workplace culture through health & wellbeing

A new world of work

“No relationship has been changed more by the pandemic than the one between employers and employees. Workers demanding more from their employers is an essential feature of effective capitalism. It drives prosperity and creates a more competitive landscape for talent, pushing companies to create better, more innovative environments for their employees. Companies that deliver are reaping the rewards.”

Larry Fink, Blackrock CEO, 2022

The past two years have been a deeply challenging time for leaders. They have had to grapple with an unprecedented pace of change, which has placed the spotlight firmly on people management skills, the central role of wellbeing and adaptability in the fluid environment of hybrid working.

At the same time, leaders play a key part in shaping an organisation’s wellbeing culture. In fact the latest CIPD wellbeing report identifies leaders’ skills as pivotal for employee wellbeing, and one of the key factors in the success or failure of wellbeing strategies. And yet, very few leaders receive formal training or support to develop these skills.
