This Episode: Wellbeing Strategies – with Gethin Nadin

Lucinda welcomes Gethin Nadin, an expert in workplace wellbeing, to discuss the current state of wellbeing strategies in organisations and the need for a more holistic approach.

Gethin shares insights from his research and emphasises the importance of organisational culture and personal responsibility in promoting wellbeing. They also delve into the impact of AI on well-being and productivity in the workplace.

Key Takeaways

  • Wellbeing strategies should focus on inclusivity and organisational structure, rather than solely relying on purchasing wellbeing platforms or tools.
  • Low-intensity wellbeing interventions, such as providing skills and education to support a healthier lifestyle, can have a significant impact on overall wellbeing.
  • Organisations should prioritise creating a culture of wellbeing and personal responsibility, where employees are encouraged to take care of their wellbeing for both personal and business success.
  • AI technology can play a role in removing administrative tasks and providing personalised support, but it should be used in a way that enhances the human experience at work, rather than diminishing it.
