In this episode we dive deep into workplace wellbeing, uncovering why it is no longer just a nice to have, but a strategic imperative. As a wellness expert Bobbi shares her thoughts around how organisations can move from wellbeing 1.0 where it is tangential to the long-term strategy of the business to wellbeing 2.0 where it is understood to be a critical success factor, firmly embedded in the workplace culture.
“Wellbeing continues to be proven to have an impact on almost every metric that a leader would care about, from bottom line, performance and share price to team cohesion and productivity, to customer satisfaction and loyalty. Take wellbeing seriously.”
