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.

Work Wellbeing is a must-read book for 2020 and beyond. It makes for both easy and compelling reading. It is practical and the insights stated with clarity. It should be a compulsory narrative for on-boarding new organisational leadership.

Really a “must read” for anyone who runs any type of business. So much of what is said in the book is inspirational for anyone trying to have a happy and motivated staff in a pleasing work environment…and that hopefully promotes wellbeing for all, staff and clients/patients.

An easy read due to quotes, layout and quality flow of information. Yet I find myself being challenged to consider and think differently. I recommend reading if you are a leader who wants to influence, motivate and lead people to thrive!

This timely book is essential reading for those who want practical and clear advice on the current state of wellbeing and how to implement solutions that support the changing work environment for individuals and teams. It is highly informed and advances the understanding of this important topic.
Academic and Social Commentator, Reventure Ltd
Work Wellbeing is perfectly timed for a socially constrained world that is trying to work remotely. This book will provide leaders the important insights that go to the core of human inspiration and team health and well being. When leaders care about their people and the human dimension of work, teams lift. Everyone wins.
McCrindle and Fell tell the story of successful leaders with engaging clarity and hard evidence. They explain how to build thriving organisations without allowing work to become the sum total of people’s lives. There is much to be gained from getting this balance right and much to be lost if it’s not.

Love this book. It has never been more important to nurture wellbeing in our people and engage our workforces. We cannot be effective leaders without being mindful of the human condition, how we harness people’s strengths so they can flourish and thrive.
