Almost fifty professionals from various businesses across Scotland joined us this month to discuss
well-being in the workplace during the Interactive morning launch and networking event in Paisley,
as we launched our partnership with Law at Work.
We heard from three speakers who shared their expertise and experience on this thought-provoking subject. Karyn Psyl, MCIPD, delivered the latest CIPD statistics on annual costs in terms of days and productivity lost due to poor physical and mental health of employees all over the UK, demonstrating the criticality of the need for businesses to consider how they support their biggest asset – their people.
Oxana MacGregor-Gunn, from the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH), spoke about the importance of mental health and well-being and the support available to individuals and businesses.
Trace Peckett, from Lead with Wisdom People and Change Consultancy, shared her heart-centered approach of implementing health and well-being strategies, as part of a business plan with a commercial sense, therefore creating a transparent culture, where employees have the supportive environment to be themselves and perform at their best.
The delegates also had a chance to participate in a Q&A session with the guest speakers, alongside Jane Wylie-Roberts from Stafffinders and Heather Maclean from Law at Work. Attendees were delighted to trial out Bolt’s newly developed modules: Imposter Syndrome, Resilience and Powerful Self-confidence, designed by subject matter experts.
