Session 1

Understanding health & wellbeing of employees in a time of change

The one constant is change. But we are simply not used to the disruption that we have experienced over the past few years. How has change impacted our health and wellbeing? This session will explore the impact of change on the health and wellbeing of your people and ways to move your organization forward with “healthy changes” that engage your workforce.

Session 2

Spotlight on health equity in the changing workplace

Health equity is the absence of unfair systems and policies that cause health inequalities. Health equity seeks to reduce inequalities and to increase access to opportunities and conditions conducive to health for all. How has the pandemic and associated changes in our lives, shone a spotlight on these health inequalities? This session will help you understand how change impacts employees differently and how you can remove barriers to health equity in your workplace.
