What is the state of employee wellbeing?

Organisations have adapted to new business challenges and working practices since COVID-19 restrictions eased. But how well are their employees coping and managing stress in this new world of work?

and 900+ HR leaders to discover common trends and challenges resulting from the pandemic and how it impacts employee wellbeing

How can you support wellbeing at work?

Employee wellbeing shouldn’t be tackled as a standalone project or considered an afterthought. To effectively mitigate the risks, there needs to be a holistic approach that accounts for individual needs and preferences. That means having the right leadership, culture, and HR systems in place to support wellbeing.
