The Power in Wellbeing: Addressing Mental Health in the workplace

10 September 2020 from 10h00 CET – 11h00 CET.

A webinar with Geoff McDonald, Senior Adviser at RISE and co-founder of Minds at Work, and Jonny Jacobs, Finance Director EMEA Starbucks. Moderated by Katarina Wallin Bureau, Managing Partner at RISE.

COVID-19 has exacerbated an existing mental health crisis among the global workforce. There is increasing recognition that a happy, healthy, and energised workforce is a key driver of business success.

We discussed:
* Whether COVID-19 provides an opportunity for organisations to reset their focus on employee   wellbeing – both physical and mental – as a strategic priority?
* What are the key features of organisations that succeed in addressing this?
* What are the implications for organisational and individual accountability to enhance employee wellbeing?
* How can a sense of purpose add to motivation and overall wellbeing at work?

The pandemic has shown the strategic importance of addressing not only the physical but also the mental health of employees. The focus on mental wellbeing in the workplace cannot be put back in a box – it is here to stay – and companies need to address it.
