Getting started on your workplace wellbeing strategy10.06.20
Director of Employee Wellbeing
Listen in to Gethin & Paul
Gethin Nadin, Benefex’s Director, Employee Wellbeing, and Paul Johnstone, Head of Global Benefits at Orange Business Services share their experiences of the most difficult part of any workplace wellbeing strategy: getting started.
With so many different factors to consider, and so many people to cater to, it’s often difficult to know where to begin when it comes to setting up wellbeing initiatives. Paul explains how the telecommunications giants started by defining where wellbeing sat within the HR function, how they got senior-level buy-in from the beginning, and the importance of communications through personal, human channels.
Gethin is a psychology graduate who has been helping some of the world’s largest organisations to improve their employee experience and wellbeing for almost two decades. The last 9 years have been spent working as part of the senior leadership team here at Benefex.
