Event description

Description

The CIPR Greater London Group, together with Birkbeck College, are pleased to be organising an event to commemorate World Mental Health Day. The 24/7 culture is something that most practitioners struggle with and the key concern for the CIPR and the profession this year is around mental health as the CIPR State of the Profession Report 2018/19 will testify.

In a bid to both champion better wellness working practices and to promote practical ways of switching off and thriving, we have some fantastic speakers from academia and industry lined up to present the latest research and strategies. We also have practical break out activities facilitated by specialist trainers for attendees to review how their teams manage 'always on' and to learn how to lead, thrive, and as a result, build resilience at work.
