Event Information

Now more than ever, wellbeing and mental health are in the forefront of employers’ minds and the top of employees’ priorities. The challenges of remote working, isolation, furloughs, pandemic, racial injustice, and personal struggles have combined to create a very onerous environment for employees...and by extension, employers.


The discussion-based Virtual Wellbeing & Mental Health Masterclass will help HR leaders investigate integrating mental wellbeing into corporate culture, make reasonable adjustments, tackle stigma, increase employee engagement, and address best practices for employers.


The event will consist of three presentations each capped at 10 minutes that will be delivered by our HR partners. The presentations will be followed by a series of three interactive roundtables designed to enable HR leaders from the most influential brands to share knowledge in a collaborative environment.
