Description

The concept of employee wellbeing has evolved in recent years. Beyond a pure focus on work-life balance, it requires a more holistic approach that encompasses a focus on work-life harmony, physical wellbeing, emotional wellbeing, and financial wellbeing.

LIVE! Days

Throughout 2020, we are presenting a series of 4 LIVE! Days - a programme of webinars on each of these themes broadcast via our Asia Employee Wellbeing Virtual Platform:

With webinars designed for different audiences – from employee wellbeing, HR and D&I professionals to general employees, we invite you to participate in these LIVE! Days to discover new ways to promote a culture of wellbeing in your organisation.

 

Work-Life Harmony LIVE! Day

In this first in a series of LIVE! Days for 2020, we explore the role of companies in promoting and supporting the work-life harmony of their employees.

Work-life harmony is about encouraging employees to manage or arrange the different parts of their life in a way that is in tune with their individual goals – and creating the right corporate culture, policies and programmes to enable them to do so.  A deliberately Asian perspective on achieving balance, the concept of work-life harmony recognises that different elements may fluctuate or take precedence at different times and that the two aspects of work and life may be interwoven.

 

To view this programme of webinars your company needs to have access to our Virtual Platform by being a registered subscriber of Asia Employee Wellbeing Link.  The annual subscription fee is US $500.  In 2020 this fee is waived for DIAN and DIAN India members.

About the Session
Increasingly companies in Asia are recognising the importance or promoting the wellbeing of their employees and creating a workplace environment that supports work-life harmony.  Yet whilst many wellbeing interventions are helpful and make people feel and do better in the short-term, they often fall short when it comes to long-lasting change.  In this webinar, Graham Barkus, managing partner of a Hong Kong-based coaching practice focused on improving workplace wellbeing and resilience, will explore the longer-term challenge of helping people ‘stay better’.  He’ll highlight the need for a more systemic approach and look at how wellbeing professionals can build a coherent, systemic approach to sustain workplace wellbeing and performance.
