This is a limited series on Wellbeing & Thriving.

The volatility, uncertainty, complexity and acceleration at work is continuing at pace. Work (the role, the place, and how we do it) is no longer defined. People's connection to a greater sense of purpose and belonging within a culture is slowly being eroded and the result is a severe impact on peoples' mental health and when ignored is resulting in greater levels of burnout than previously seen.

There has been a debate about where responsibility for wellbeing lies, is it with the individual or is it with the organisation? The answer is that there are strategies and interventions that both should take to ensure the wellbeing of people at work.

Join us, Lauren Pearson & Jessica Hill, and our guests who are specialists in their areas of wellbeing to discover what this might mean for you and your workplace.
