About this Event

81% of workers reported that their struggles have increased in 2020. With the new and changing ways of working in 2020, employee wellbeing has now become more important than ever.

Our wellbeing and how we feel day-to-day has a significant impact on our performance, engagement, satisfaction and relationships, not only at work, but also at home.

With over 1,400 worker insights on how COVID-19 has affected them and their wellbeing state, leaders can now learn exactly how to play their part in influencing positive change in their workplace and within their people. These research findings will better equip you, your team and your organisation to instigate positive change and take ownership of wellbeing.

Join Global Wellbeing Keynote speaker, best-selling author and Founder of The Wellbeing Lab, Dr Michelle McQuaid, Danielle Jacobs, Registered Psychologist and The Wellbeing Lab Co-Founder and Andrea Marlan from Drake International’s Wellness Hub, for an interactive, evidence-based and thought-provoking discussion exploring:

  • How COVID-19's impact on Australian workers
  • The emergent trends in wellbeing, EAP use and help-seeking behaviours
  • The latest insights on what it takes for Australian workplaces to thrive in constant uncertainty
  • What leading workplaces are doing differently and how you can incorporate their best principles and practices
  • How leaders can support wellbeing and performance
  • And the biggest opportunity for leaders to help their teams thrive.

This informative workshop is FREE, and will help Boards, HR, People & Culture specialists, Business Owners, Leaders and Learning & Development professionals understand, and proactively and efficiently manage workplace wellbeing in a rapidly changing environment.
