Wellbeing at work: Is it really deteriorating?
Leaders: Beth Chung (guest speaker) and Amy King (guest speaker)
Thursday May 20
8am PT / 11am ET / 3pm GMT
Before the COVID-19 pandemic started, wellbeing was a rising concern for employees and organizations alike. Since the pandemic the concern has shifted into overdrive. In this session we will address:
- What are the wellbeing trends? Where were we with the wellbeing topic pre-pandemic, where are we now, and where are we likely to be heading?
- The pandemic is creating a shift to hybrid work that is only starting to play out as offices reopen. What are the implications for wellbeing as people face the challenges and benefits of partial work-from-home and partial work-in-the-office?
- Self-reported wellbeing issues need to be taken seriously but self-reporting employee engagement has always been looked down upon as being less reliable data. What can we do to ensure that any data is seriously acted upon?
