During the webinar you will be able to:

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