  • 5th December 2022 - 5th December 2022
  • 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Leading experts will discuss how we can generate new knowledge through research to enhance mental wellbeing, support productivity, and equip the workplace of the future with interventions that prioritise and promote mental wellbeing.

Prof Gordon Harold (Faculty of Education, Cambridge) and Justine Andrew and Rachel Hopcroft (KPMG), with chair Prof Diane Coyle (Bennett Institute for Public Policy, Cambridge), will discuss this new research collaboration on mental wellbeing, productivity, and the workplace – for a healthier workforce and economy.

They’ll debate the initial interdisciplinary thinking around policy ‘solutions’ for better mental wellbeing in the workplace. The findings from which will inform the policy implications for local and national governments, and individual workplaces.

There will be the opportunity to ask your own questions.

Please arrive from 5.00pm to register in advance of the fireside chat starting at 5.30pm, at Downing College, Cambridge, CB2 1DQ.
