About the book

Over the last few years wellbeing has risen to the top of the agenda. It is one of the key challenges and opportunities that our society faces.

In any given week, we spend more than a third of our waking hours at work, so it is the place we most need to get wellbeing right. Our research shows that wellbeing is a key priority for workers, with 83% saying it is up to the employer to facilitate wellbeing in the workplace.

In the new book Work Wellbeing: Leading thriving teams in rapidly changing times, social researchers Mark McCrindle and Ashley Fell provide a practical, data-driven guide to workplace wellbeing, equipping leaders, managers and employees with a thorough understanding of what workplace wellbeing is, why it’s important and how to achieve it. The book covers topics such as:

  • The future of work & why wellbeing matters
  • How to lead teams in changing times
  • The barriers and pillars of workplace wellbeing
  • Why work wellbeing is non-negotiable
  • How to be a wellbeing champion

An essential guide for organisations of any size, Work Wellbeing provides the tools needed to boost employee morale, team culture, and ultimately your bottom line.
