This lecture will explore the costs of lack of workplace wellbeing, what causes it and what can be done about it. The impact of the recession has had huge consequences on organisations and the pressures that have been placed on their staff. Sir Cary will provide the latest evidence, based on recent research, on these factors and current trends in how best to address some key issues.
