Joined-up thinking starts here!


63% of UK businesses now recognise the importance of taking a proactive, strategic approach to providing support for their employees’ wellbeing.  But how do you ensure that your organisation’s wellbeing strategy is more than a tick-box exercise?  How do you join the dots between leadership will, HR intent and employee engagement?  How can you change organisational culture to support employee wellbeing in a way that is preventative as well as supportive?  And how can you ensure that employee wellbeing delivers measurable benefits for corporate wellbeing? 

The REBA Employee Wellbeing Congress is the leading UK event for heads of HR, reward, benefits and wellbeing that aims to help you design and implement a joined-up approach to your employee wellbeing strategy – a cohesive strategy across physical, financial, mental, and social wellbeing.  Join us for this one-day Congress, with an agenda designed to provide you with the maximum opportunity to learn, network and find out about new, innovative solutions. 

Our speakers include innovators, business leaders, organisational change experts, heads of HR, reward directors and heads of wellbeing, who will all share their experience and focus on how to connect the dots more effectively between business objectives, leadership culture, and wellbeing strategy.  You’ll leave the day inspired by actionable ideas and ready to implement practical, culture-changing solutions.  For the best results, we recommend attending with your colleagues from across the HR, reward, benefits and wellbeing teams – joined-up thinking starts here!
