Welcome to the programme for the virtual Employee Wellbeing Congress

An interactive event

It's an interactive event, so a key part will be meeting your peers and exchanging fresh thinking and practical solutions to challenges you are now facing. Between the keynotes, plenaries, panel sessions and breakout sessions, you will join facilitated discussion groups with like-minded employers to talk about opportunities and challenges that you're addressing including the physical, mental, social and financial wellbeing of your workforce. Plus there are live vendor presentations to keep you up-to-date with the latest services, and hear about new trends and developments to help your employees re-engage and thrive.

Updates
The programme is being updated all the time with new information, so please come back regularly to see the latest details.
