“Take care of your employees, and they will take care of your business.”
– Richard Branson
Wellbeing isn’t just good for your people, it’s good for your bottom line too.
In this hyperconnected, hybrid work environment we now live in, workplace wellbeing has never been more important… or more of a challenge.
In an age where competition for talent is fierce, business uncertainty is high and ‘quiet quitting’ is an actual thing, creating a culture that prioritises employee health and happiness isn’t just the ‘right thing to do’ – it’s good business too.
Research clearly shows a positive correlation between employee wellbeing and company performance across a wide variety of indicators, including firm valuations, gross profits and stock market performance. And if that’s not enough motivation, failing to look after the wellbeing of employees is now a punishable offence under new Australian Work Health and Safety laws.
Bottom line? It’s time to create a culture that prioritises wellbeing. And happily, we have some of the world’s best wellbeing speakers on hand to help you!
