Employee Engagement & Well-being Event - Meet the Speakers!

Hr Operations Recruitment Event

Employee Engagement & Well-being Event: Meet the Speakers!

We are delighted to be partnering with yulife to be hosting our 'Employee Engagement & Well-being' event.

As the recruitment sector continues to develop & mature, there is a greater emphasis across the industry on retaining & developing talent. Research has found that company culture, work-life balance & purpose are ever-increasingly important factors in workplace satisfaction and this trend will only continue, particularly as Gen Z enters the workplace & Millennials continue to move up the career ladder.

Why have we partnered with yulife? yulife is the well-being insurer which offers life insurance cover to business teams so that employees can protect their loved ones financially. By engaging in healthy activities like walking or meditation, yulife users can earn virtual yucoins - the "currency of well-being" via an app - which can be exchanged for real-life rewards like Amazon or ASOS vouchers. yulife clients include leading recruitment companies including Brighter Box, Communicate RS, Stott & May as well as ourselves! So, who better to partner with for this event?!

We have some brilliant and insightful speakers lined up to speak at the event, and here they are:
