“Companies have to really think about their people and what keeps them in the job.”
– Christine Kohlert, RBSGROUP
Kicking off the New Year, the first Digital Workplace Impact podcast of 2018, hosted by Paul Miller, investigates wellbeing (a very topical subject for January!) with Sally Augustin and Christine Kohlert. Wellbeing in the workplace has benefited from a sea-change in recent years, with organizations taking it more seriously and working harder to retain employees. What’s more, today there is more data to support the theories of how “caring” for your employees can bring benefits to the whole organization.
Recorded live at the Workplace Trends conference, in London, the trio discuss the impact of wellbeing on employee output; how digital workplaces can have an adverse effect on our wellbeing; blending and balancing company and local cultures; and relaxing (and in some cases, napping) at work!
