Abstract:

Connection, Achievement, and Purpose: How to strategically build a modern workplace culture where people thrive, Dr Peggy Kern, University of Melbourne; Beck Melville, The Wellbeing Lab

Workplace cultures are increasingly faced with market disruptors, shifting business models, increasingly diverse workforces and new technologies, resulting in growing disconnection, underperformance, and a loss of purpose.

With the World Health Organization now recognising that burnout is an occupational phenomenon resulting from chronic workplace stress, supporting the wellbeing of workers has become the responsibility of every HR leader.

Modern workplace cultures need to attract talent, trigger innovation, offer a sense of belonging, shape great leaders and result in ongoing success.  Associate Professor Peggy Kern and Beck Melville will show how HR leaders can create a wellbeing strategy that builds connection, drives achievement, and creates purpose for employees and organisations as a whole.
