WELLBEING IN A COVID WORLD: NAVIGATING OUR WAY THROUGH THE PANDEMIC

ABOUT OUR GROUP

DETAILS

As we navigate our way through the Covid pandemic, wellbeing needs are changing. There are urgent and immediate needs due to trauma, uncertainty and change: new challenges such as remote working, furlough, isolation, zoom fatigue, and the need to protect mental wellbeing longer-term. Hear insight on wellbeing from the Work and Equalities Institute, share your experiences of wellbeing in a Covid world and join the conversation on how organisations might best address evolving wellbeing needs. This event is aimed at senior people professionals working strategically to influence change and shape policy.

Our Fellows Forum brings together Chartered fellows and Senior HR professionals (HR Directors, CHROs) to discuss the critical challenges faced by HR. We provide a space to share innovative practice, cutting- edge research and a forum to debate, share ideas and build supportive senior-level peer networks. This event is brought to you In collaboration with the University of Manchester's Alliance MBS and the Work & Equalities Institute.

BACK TO WORK & WELLBEING

ABOUT OUR GROUP

DETAILS

Are our people ready to return to work some of the time or full-time? How do we manage potential anxiety linked to travelling on public transport, returning to the workplace, mixing with colleagues and clients? Is this the right time to be making plans for the future? An what about those who don't want to return to working as they did, are we likely to see absenteeism soaring? As Covid restrictions continue to relax, have you stopped to think about wellbeing in the immediate post-covid restrictions era? We will explore some interesting examples of what organisations are planning and how and why this differs from their earlier plans.

Fostering employee wellbeing is good for people and the organisation. Promoting wellbeing can help prevent stress and create positive working environments where individuals and organisations can thrive. Good health and wellbeing can be a core enabler of employee engagement and organisational performance. Our group meets several times throughout the year to discuss employee wellbeing, strategy, & programmes.
