About the What If Your Job Was Good For You? white paper launch
People do not expect to be physically injured at work, and nor should their mental health be damaged. However, in the 12 months before BITC’s Mental Health at Work 2020 survey, developed in partnership with Bupa UK Insurance and the BITC Wellbeing Leadership Team, 41% of employees experienced poor mental health caused by work.
Although work can be part of the cause of poor mental health, it can also be part of the solution to improving it. COVID-19 has acted as a powerful catalyst to transform the working world. For example, employees who never dreamed of working remotely and flexibly are now doing so. BITC’s What If Your Job Was Good For You? white paper identifies and consolidates evidence on the best ways of working beyond the pandemic. The report will drive a collaborative movement with BITC members and key stakeholders to improve workplace mental health and wellbeing.
Those attending will hear evidence based practical actions that enhance wellbeing for everyone using the Mental Health at Work Commitment as a framework for action.

The What If Your Job Was Good For You? report launch event is open to BITC members and non-members. It is designed to benefit those working in HR/people management or wellbeing related roles. The content will be applicable to both the private and public sectors.
About Business in the Community’s focus on health and wellbeing
Business in the Community 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.
