Advancing Work-life Balance in the Workplace - Book Launch and Networking event

Innovation in employee engagement is available to everyone, not only to Silicon Valley unicorns!

Are organisations doing enough to attract and retain the right talent? Are women supported when returning to work after a career break? What are the issues with diversity or shared parental leave? Are company cultures conducive to employees benefiting from the available services and support to balance work and their private and family lives?

Last year for the first time employees in the UK took more sick-days due to psychological reasons than for physical issues. As burnout is growing into an epidemic, employers are struggling with systemic and lasting solutions to prevent mental health problems linked to overwhelm.

Join us on the 30th of October for a lively after-work panel-discussion and networking event to learn from the latest research, workplace trends and the most forward-looking companies about wellbeing, flexible working, work-life balance and employee engagement.

17.00 - 17.30 Registration and Refreshments
