Shaping the New World of Work: Wellbeing in the workplace ─ Learning from a case study

26 June 2023
10.00 - 15.00 CET

About the event

Employee wellbeing has been a prominent topic for many years now, but it is only with the Covid-19 pandemic that it has become a focal point of HR management practices in organisations and recognized as a key factor to ensuring business continuity. With the advance of remote working and stronger reliance on the ever-growing number of technological tools, organisations are challenged to rethink the way they work while continuously assessing the impact of those changes on the wellbeing of employees. This conference will help participants to envision the future organisation with supportive leaders, who put the wellbeing of employees at the centre of decision-making processes, which can help to increase the attractiveness of organisations and employee engagement.

Participants will gain an understanding of what wellbeing at work is, why we need to pay attention to it and how we implement successful initiatives. Taking into account the public sector context, wellbeing-focused and people-centred leadership will be examined and discussed. In the final part of the conference, the speakers will outline current wellbeing ‘hot topics’ such as the right to disconnect, psychosocial risks and mental health, and share their experience of successful implementation of these initiatives in the European Parliament.


By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of what wellbeing at work entails, and how it can be managed;
  • Learn more about trust-based and inclusive leadership;
  • Be able to make concrete suggestions to your organisation around the best practices related to right to disconnect, management of psychosocial risks and implementation of mental health strategy.
