This Wellbeing Champions’ Forum will preview insights from a Business in the Community (BITC) report, which is being launched on 30 June.

About the webinar
The report will identify the best ways of working beyond the COVID-19 pandemic, consolidate evidence and act as a vehicle to drive a collaborative movement with BITC members and key stakeholders.

Those attending will hear evidence based practical actions on ways of working that enhance wellbeing for everyone with outcomes that are transformational, using the Mental Health at Work Commitment as a framework for action.

During the webinar you will be able to:

hear guest speaker insights;

join group discussions on ways of working that enhance wellbeing for all.

Speakers

  • Dr Jo Yarker, Director at Affinity Health at Work.
  • Jonathan Gawthrop, Executive Director, Wellbeing Sustainability & Assurance at EMCOR Group (UK) plc.
  • Louise Aston, Wellbeing Director at BITC

Background
The pandemic has provided a once in a lifetime opportunity to reinvent ways of working that enhance mental health and wellbeing, and create cultures of trust and belonging, where everyone feels safe to speak up and be actively listened to.

When we are at work, we don’t expect to be physically injured so we shouldn’t expect our mental health to be negatively impacted either. However, the reality is that 41% of employees have experienced poor mental health caused by work in the past year, with pressure and workload the biggest drivers¹.

Audience
This event is only for BITC members who are Wellbeing Champions.

Contact details and further information
For more information, contact Ellie Jefford, Events Coordinator at BITC or Emma Gage, Wellbeing Campaign Manager at BITC.

Full joining instructions will be sent before the event.

Following government advice on social distancing, all BITC events over the coming months will be deremotely via digital technology.
