Employee Wellbeing: A Competitive Advantage? A growing body of research indicates that there is a direct correlation between employee energy and performance – and that energy is largely driven by “wellbeing”. But what is wellbeing and why should it be considered as crucial for competitive advantage? Drawing on ideas on his 25 years’ experience in HR leadership at Unilever, and his own deeply personal story, Geoff will outline how companies can build wellbeing into development and performance as well as changing the narrative and stigma associated with mental health.
