6 Ideas to Get You Started

As you think about your participation in 2020 Asia Employee Wellbeing Week, we encourage you to start planning your activities early and to build into your corporate calendar.

 

If you’re looking for inspiration for what to do, here are 6 ideas to get you started:

 

  1. Encourage your employees to tune into our Emotional Wellbeing LIVE! Day on Friday 9 October 2020 – broadcast via the Auditorium of our Asia Employee Wellbeing Virtual Platform. This virtual event comprises a programme of webinars by leading experts on different aspects of emotional wellbeing, including: happiness, resilience and mental health.
     
  2. Organise your own employee wellbeing event in Asia and perhaps invite an external expert. Looking for inspiration? Browse our Virtual Marketplace showcasing service providers, speakers and trainers with expertise and service offerings related to employee wellbeing and find out how they can support your programme.
     
  3. Share an interesting video or TEDTalk related to employee wellbeing​. We’ve collated a variety of videos designed to increase understanding and spark conversation and posted them in the Resource Centre of the Virtual Platform.
     
  4. Consider introducing a new policy or benefit - specifically designed to enhance the wellbeing of your employees. Perhaps a new flexible working policy or benefit to encourage employees to take charge of their physical wellbeing.
     
  5. Promote the Green Ribbon campaign to your employees​. Raise awareness of mental health in the workplace in Asia. Distribute green ribbons as a way to raise awareness, end the stigma and spark conversation about mental health. Visit The Green Ribbon Campaign booth in the Virtual Marketplace on the Virtual Platform, or contact Community Business for more information.
     
  6. Consider introducing a This is Me programme in your organisation, encouraging employees to share their personal stories of mental health.  For more information, see what we have been doing in India or contact us for more information.
