Healthy Leadership, Healthy Employees and Resilient Organisations – Wellbeing at Work

27 January 2022
- 28 January 2022

About the event

We have learned our lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and know how important leadership is, especially in a world of remote working where employees intend to work independently from place and time.

Our two-day event will focus on questions around healthy leadership, employees and resilient organisations.

We will focus on the following points:

  • How to understand the basic principles and procedures you need to know to shape good working conditions and relationships as the basis for resilient organisations in times of ongoing crisis.
  • How to improve crisis management in the VUCA world (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, agility).
  • Get to know the importance of wellbeing in the workplace, strengthen mental health and build corporate health management to promote employee engagement and performance.
  • Be able to develop leadership principles, policies and tools tailored to your organisation.
