The Importance of Employee Wellbeing in SMEs

Thursday, 22 October 2020
| 13:00 to 14:00

We're thrilled to share this great event with our partners Parental Choice.

Looking after the wellbeing of employees can reap rewards for all businesses. Often owners of small businesses, however, are left wondering what the true benefits are to them, how and why they should help their employees and what are the costs.

The event's aim is to look at the importance of employee wellbeing for SMEs. Our panel of industry experts will discuss:

  • What are the steps SMEs are taking to support their employees and why wellbeing support has to be an essential part of every organisation’s culture, values and strategy.

  • Strategically, looking at the detrimental cultural and financial impact of SMEs not supporting their employees' wellbeing, and the ROI of having a wellbeing strategy in place.

  • The barriers for SMEs to implementing a wellbeing programme and ways to overcome them.

  • Why investing in wellbeing matters.

  • Julie Baker - Head of Enterprise and Community Finance, NatWest

  • Kevin Daniels - Professor of Organizational Behaviour, UEA

  • Paul Devoy - CEO, Investors in People

  • Moderated by Sarah-Jane Butler, founder and CEO of Parental Choice and PC Employee Care.
