Video tutorial: REBA's Debi O’Donovan explains how to use wellbeing as an asset
There are three key disruptors who could change the direction of wellbeing within workplaces, according to REBA director Debi O’Donovan. They are asset managers, CEOs and government, she said.
Speaking at the Employee Wellbeing Congress 2018 O’Donovan said organisations needed to keep an eye on such disruptors and understand the changing perspectives and influences of government, investors and the boardroom on the wellbeing strategies of their companies.
She said delegates need to better promote the wellbeing benefits amongst their leaders. “Few boards seem to realise currently just how much of a key business driver wellbeing could be and that’s the challenge to us in the room today to change our language around wellbeing when we speak upwards to our boards and chief executives. Make the links for them to those business drivers,” she said.
She said organisations should use the thinking of CEOs who lead the way in wellbeing to demonstrate to their own leaders how to use wellbeing to create a resilient, sustainable organisation; speak the language of the board to help manage new pressures from asset managers and be prepared for the government to start asking more.
This video was recorded at the Employee Wellbeing Congress 2018, held in London on 5 July.
