Business in the Community (BITC) is pleased to convene this peer learning forum, aimed at BITC members with a Wellbeing partnership.

About the peer learning forum
This webinar will provide insights into the growing topic of interest of social wellbeing, and discuss the challenges, successes and best practice on how to prioritise a sense of inclusion and social connection amongst employees.

Agenda
A guest speaker will kick off the event to discuss research and good practice. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion under Chatham House Rules to consider what employers are and could be doing to understand and support their staff with social wellbeing.

Audience
This event is open to BITC members with a Wellbeing partnership. It will be of interest to HR and wellbeing practitioners.

Places are limited, and will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Due to size restrictions, we are limited to offering one place per member organisation.

Background
Loneliness across the UK is on the rise with lockdown and social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Recent research from the mental health charity, Mind, has found that nearly two thirds (60 percent) of people across England say that their mental health has got worse during lockdown

Employers have an impact on employee mental health, the only decision they must make is whether this is positively or negatively.

About peer learning forums
BITC’s peer learning forums provide a confidential environment to discuss common issues, good practice and solutions. There will be an emphasis on discussion and sharing experiences.

Contact details and further information
For further information contact Ellie Jefford, Events Coordinator at BITC.

Following government advice on social distancing, all BITC events over the coming months will be delivered remotely via digital technology. Details on how to join will be sent prior to the event.
