“The Contemporary Manager: If you can’t talk about it, you can’t manage it!”

Thursday 20th September, 2018

Employees first and foremost are people, and people bring their lives to work each day. In recent research, it was found that almost half of employees feel their line manager is not concerned about their well-being.

Positive employee engagement has become the key differentiator for creating a high-performing workplace environment and it is critical that managers, who are at the front line, provide a supporting and nurturing space and rise to any challenge. But it is tough being a manager! Performance targets are demanding, resources are scarce and time is precious. Most managers want to do the right thing for employee well-being but may feel uncertain about how to do this.

This Breakfast Forum will take the form of a practical workshop, exploring what managers can realistically do to address issues in a positive and supportive way whilst continuing to meet the performance needs of the business. You’ll be given access to contemporary research information on how to deal with well-being issues such as: financial concerns, relationship breakdowns, mental and physical health and workplace issues.

We hope that this thought-provoking session will raise awareness that managers represent a vital lever for creating a workforce that is both engaged and well.
