What is the true value of humans at work? High performing organisations and fulfilled flourishing people

About this event

How do you do both?

Our guest Perry Timms, HR influencer and author, will step is through the true value of humans at work.

Perry will take us through some sobering facts on the human cost of work e.g: stress, absenteeism and rising mental health; before offering alternative models.

Flourishing organisations have people who are more than just engaged. Perry will challenge the idea that success has to come at a cost:

There's a myth that if you look after your people and focus on their wellbeing you create a cosy club with low productivity.

It is not a binary choice between your bottom line or your people.

Perry has collated best practice examples around the globe of organisations that have both a flourishing business and their people are flourishing. Perry will step us through some of the thinking behind this new way of working and offer our audience concrete things we can do to have both.
