Moving the Dial on Well-Being and Mental Health in the Workplace

There has been a profound shift in attitudes towards well-being and mental health in the workplace—not just at social and political levels, but also across the international business community. Employee well-being is no longer solely an HR issue. As The Conference Board C-Suite Challenge™ 2019 global survey demonstrates, senior business leaders are increasingly aware of their social responsibilities and the growing demand for sustainable strategies in all areas of the business—including people strategy.1 For many companies, building long-term value through people can only be achieved through a genuine commitment to employee well-being. But how can companies best advance their well-being strategies at a time of widespread business disruption and transformation?

That very question brought together approximately 25 international companies to share learning and best practices at a summit on well-being organized by The Conference Board in the United Kingdom. These organizations recognize the opportunities and challenges facing them: as one participant said, “The time is right for businesses to take up the task and address this important topic, but the challenges, especially cultural, are considerable.”
