Wellbeing and mental health are increasingly recognised as being as important has our physical health. This has become more apparent during the COVID-19 pandemic. Business in the Community’s (BITC) annual Mental Health at Work survey, has highlighted that while more employees feel their organisation is good at supporting employees experiencing mental health problems, there is still further to go. The progress revealed by this survey is positive, but as the long-term effects of COVID-19 on our society and economy become clearer, companies need to do more to prioritise supporting the mental health of their employees. This webinar will offer insights and discussions around how best to do this.

Wellbeing at BITC
BITC defines wellbeing as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.

Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into an organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving business and thriving communities.

Build Back Responsibly
Build Back Responsibly is an ambitious campaign by BITC to radically change the expectations and impact of responsible business. Learn more in our report Time to Fix-Up: Our Big Chance for Business to Build Back Responsibly, which outlines how businesses must harness the innovation brought about by the COVID-19 crisis to tackle the challenges facing society.

The webinar is free of charge and open to Business in the Community (BITC) members and non-members. It is aimed at senior leaders and practitioners with an interest in employee wellbeing.
