Staying healthy at work: ensuring work is good for us
We know that meaningful work is good for us but work can also have a negative impact on our wellbeing. This week’s daily webinars will focus on those components of MyLeadership that consider all aspects of a workplace that works for everyone.
We all need to be supported at work, this means a working environment that is both physically and psychologically safe. This webinar explores the various ways we can keep people safe at work.
