2019 Asia Employee Wellbeing Week

Why Employee Wellbeing

We invite organisations to use 2019 Asia Employee Wellbeing Week from 7-11 October 2019 as a platform to raise awareness, educate and motivate action around employee wellbeing in your company – wherever you operate in Asia.

Research highlights a direct link between employee wellbeing, productivity and performance. Employers who invest in their employee’s wellbeing reap a range of profit-boosting benefits - from higher engagement levels on the one side, to reduced costs associated with absenteeism and attrition on the other.

Responsible businesses put employee wellbeing at the heart of their people strategy - because beyond the business case, ultimately our organisations are about people, and we have a duty of care to ensure our employees are happy, healthy and engaged.

With this in mind, we are delighted to promote 7 – 11 October 2019 as 2019 Asia Employee Wellbeing Week. We invite all companies who care about the wellbeing of their employees to get involved. And no need to wait until October – you can start developing and driving your strategy now!
