Description

5.15 (Optional) Kicking off with either a free Yoga Class or Instant Pause.

6.15 Panel discussion on Working Well & Wellbeing in the Workplace.

Various studies have shown that there are major costs associated with ignoring the importance of wellbeing and flexibility in the workplace. Absenteeism costs UK businesses more than £15 billion every year. When we surveyed people in and around Reading 83% said they would apply for their job with a competitor if it was more flexible. 69% said they'd actively seek out more flexible work in the next year.

But is incorporating wellbeing and flexibility too costly a process? Is it worth the upheaval? How will it impact those who are used to the traditional working hours and perhaps want to continue working this way? How will it affect your customers? Is it right for your company sector/size? Is it, as it's all too often billed, just a "magic bullet"? Do the pros really outweigh the cons? If, after all these questions, you do decide it's right for you then how can you go about implementing more flexible working policies in a way that's right for you, your employees and your business? These, and many other questions, will be put forward to our panel of experts, along with any other questions you might have.

We will also be discussing the possible benefits of Reading gaining a reputation of being a hub for flexible working and the effects this could have on attracting candidates from further afield to work in our businesses.

Company leaders who aren’t at least considering how to implement flexible working practises and improved wellbeing into their culture may well get left behind. Come and ask the experts how you could make it work for your company.
