By supporting your workforce, you are not only improving productivity, retention and morale but you also enable your organisation to become the ‘employer of choice’ in a tight labour market.
This unique event in November 2022 aimed to help employers better understand the ways in which they can best support their staff.
As well as a range of exciting and interactive activities throughout the day, there were also opportunities to network with other businesses, workshops and a ‘Chill Zone’ in the venue’s Immersive Dome.
Our keynote speakers were Stuart Elford, CEO of Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce; Greg Price, Health Improvement Manager at Wellbeing at Work; Ed Hart, Programme Lead at Real Ideas; Claire Turbutt, Health and Wellbeing Programme Manager at Office of Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID); and Brian Rossiter, Business Development Manager at Growth Partners PLC.
Dr Smita Tripathi, Lecturer in Leadership and HRS at University of Plymouth, talked about the next generations expectations of wellbeing in the workplace, and Carola Becker – The Nutrition Coach discussed the problems of poor workplace wellbeing, and how nutrition and lifestyle plays a crucial role in helping to increase productivity and performance.
We were also joined by Tom Lavis and Neil Talbot from YMCA Plymouth, who ran our Physical & Mental Wellbeing breakout room. The trio covered office / working-from-home exercises and tips, and gave a special 10-minute talk about one of the YMCA’s national initiatives.
The aim of this presentation was to deliver workplace wellbeing ideas which promote both physical and mental health for employees and the employer, which can subsequently increase employee engagement and increased productivity.
Elsewhere, Caroline Wilson from Partners& ran an interactive workshop with GA Solicitors‘ Serena Willis, James Peterson and Matthew Rose, offering guests the opportunity to share tips and best practices with the experts and other business owners to benefit you, your family and your business.
