WORKSHOPS SESSIONS 1

B, Get Over Yourself! Becoming a World-Class Communicator
In this high-energy, interactive workshop, Communication Specialists Own The Room will share techniques and strategies, to help land your message with impact and ensure you and your company, stand out from the crowd.

C, How to address organisational wellbeing on a global scale
It’s no longer enough to simply focus on the cost of a health and wellbeing programme. Companies of all shapes and sizes increasingly need to delve much deeper. They need to look at what’s driving both country-specific and global trends and cost drivers. Most insurers and wellbeing providers will give you some degree of medical experience (i.e. utilisation) reporting. But the reach, readability and even credibility of those reports can vary hugely. So, in what way can you use data to identify not just the trends but also their root causes - on a local and global scale? How do you translate those findings into meaningful company-driven initiatives? And how can all of this help facilitate dialogue and decision making across internal and external business units for more appropriate and better targeted health and wellbeing interventions and programmes?

WORKSHOPS SESSIONS 2

A, Rethinking Careers
The best employers attract top talent because of the career perspective they give. It becomes increasingly hard though for employers to promise exactly what career steps a new hire will be able to take in their company. A new career paradigm emerges. (intuo)

B, Stress and wellbeing: Parents and carers in the workplace
The business case for reducing stress and improving the wellbeing of employees is irrefutable. It’s been an HR headline for the past year and for many employers it’s a priority topic in 2019.

One of the biggest causes of workplace stress is inevitably the work and family juggle for parents and carers.

Three-quarters (75%) of working parents suffer stress and anxiety as a result of their work-life balance management, according to a recent study. In this lively, interactive discussion, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching & Consultancy at My Family Care discusses the challenges and the journey to find solutions for addressing stress factors for working parents and carers with Sally Evans, UK Wellbeing lead, PwC. They’ll explore the factors that impact parents and carers and share insights into the programmes that PwC have put in place and how these have evolved to support Work+Family. (MFC)

C, Designing a Successful Wellbeing Strategy
This insightful session explores how companies can improve the health, wellbeing and happiness of their employees. The session will explore how to evolve your wellbeing strategy, successfully launch new initiatives and continually measure success.
