(WEBINAR) WELLNESS IN THE WORKPLACE
Friday, July 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmComplimentary
Registration will close at 4pm the day before the event. Details to join the session will be sent to registered participants once registration is closed.
Research has shown that there is a positive correlation between organizations which promote employee wellbeing and an employee’s productivity and engagement within the organization. Companies which actively promote wellness and inclusion also report lower turnover and absenteeism rates.
Another study has also shown that while seven out of ten employers in Singapore recognize the impact of stress and mental health on productivity, only 51% of companies have wellness policies. Contrary to popular belief, promoting wellness in the workplace does not require complex solutions. Organizations can promote wellness in the workplace through the physical design and surroundings of the workplace, employee-oriented organizational policies including flexible work arrangements and inclusive practices, as well as incorporate simple practices in day-to-day operations.
As companies invest in improving organizational productivity and launch CSR programs to support the local community, how should companies invest in their employees and provide a safe workplace culture for them to thrive? Join us at AmCham for a discussion on the importance of promoting employee wellbeing and how organizations can promote wellness in the workplace.
