The UK’s leading annual employee wellbeing event for the reward & benefits community

Driving positive culture change

This year's Employee Wellbeing Congress recognises how the dial has been turned on workplace wellbeing and how that shift has been accelerated due to the global pandemic...but despite this how far there is still to go to properly align employee wellbeing tactics into a holistic strategy. In its widest sense employee wellbeing is the key aspect of an organisation's culture, and its ability to attract, retain and motivate the talent needed to sustain success.

A strategic approach to wellbeing 

In response to the pandemic, and before that too, many organisations took mostly tactical steps. However, we're pleased to observe, that workplace wellbeing has developed and grown into a key issue in our corporate consciousness. As workplaces change and societal values change too, the approach to workplace wellbeing and culture is now evolving into something altogether more sophisticated.

Holistic, measurable strategies

Tactics that were avant-garde are now superseded; isolated activities are developing into holistic strategies; new measurements are emerging as implementations are tested and technology applied. We now have access to case studies, data and evidence, along with a plethora of new products and services to support new strategies. 

Employers now have a greater understanding of the links between wellbeing, culture, engagement and performance; we are are entering a new  phase, a workplace wellbeing 2.0.

This year's Congress represents the next phase of joined up wellbeing, of cultural wellbeing, where an organisation's internal and external brand values are aligned and transparent for all to see - whether they be employees, consumers, investors or stakeholders of any sort.

With so much to explore, discover and learn make sure you don’t miss out. Join us on Thursday 30 September 2021 at 133 Houndsditch, London.

View 2020 agenda

REBA, the Reward & Employee Benefits Association, aims to drive the employee wellbeing agenda. We believe that caring for people in the workplace is both good for those particular individuals and their employers, but also the benefits to the wider society will be great too - ultimately spreading health, wealth and happiness across the UK and to our global employee populations!

To this end we organise both the Employee Wellbeing Congress and the independent Employee Wellbeing Awards, as well as publishing an annual in-depth insight report analysing trends in corporate wellbeing throughout the UK. The latest report is accessible here.
