"It's not about sushi at your desk": Cary Cooper and Jeanette Makings on key wellbeing trends
Professor Sir Cary Cooper of Alliance University of Manchester Business School and Jeanette Makings, head of financial education at Close Brothers share their thoughts on key trends in workplace wellbeing with Maggie Williams.
"It's not about sushi at your desk, mindfulness lunchtime or ping pong tables", says Sir Cary. He adds, "the most fundamental part of this is developing managers with enough emotional intelligence. We have people [in businesses] with good technical skills, but not good people skills."
"Financial is running to catch up with physical and mental wellbeing," says Jeanette Makings. "It's been the forgotten cousin. But it is now on people's agendas. You can't have overall wellbeing without all three components in place."
Watch the video to find out more about Sir Cary and Jeanette's views on emerging wellbeing trends. They will also be speaking at REBA's Employee Wellbeing Congress on 20 June.
