Wellbeing through diversity: Supporting your LGBT+ community16.06.20

Listen in to the diversity experts
In the fight to make workplaces completely inclusive, many employers hesitate to take action, for fear of saying or doing the wrong thing. This inertia often leads to employees continually feeling alienated from their colleagues, disconnected from their employer, and uncomfortable with bringing their whole selves to work – particularly those in the LGBT+ community.
Trish Driver from A New Normal, Cheryl Morgan from The Diversity Trust and Benefex’s own Gethin Nadin surface the challenges that many LGBT+ employees face every day, and tackle employers' fears, so that they can better support their whole workforce's wellbeing.
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. As a frequent writer and keynote speaker on employee experience and employee wellbeing, Gethin has been featured in The Guardian, The Huffington Post and The Financial Times as well as major HR, Reward and Pensions publications. Gethin is also a founding member of the Engage for Success Wellbeing Thought Action Group, is listed on the Employee Engagement Powerlist and is one of the world’s Top 1010 Employee Engagement Influencers.
In 2018, Gethin published his first book – the award winning HR bestseller ‘A World of Good: Lessons From Around the World in Improving the Employee Experience’, which has gone on to inspire HR and Reward teams at some of the world’s best-known brands.
