LionHeart takes part in Wellness 17
LionHeart will be leading a panel discussion on work-life balance at the Wellness 17 conference in London on September 5.
The one-day Wellness Within The Workplace conference takes place at Credit Suisse in Canada Square and will involve more than 150 senior professionals responsible for driving forward wellbeing initiatives in the workplace. Subjects will include new strategies and trends supporting wellness at work, “taming” technology and the stigmatisation of mental health at work.
Parita Mardania, LionHeart’s training and development manager, will lead a panel discussion on ‘Work-Life Integration: How do you get the balance right?’ alongside Kate Taylor FRICS, who delivers LionHeart’s work-life balance workshops, and Nick Martel, chief operating officer from CBRE.
The trio (pictured above) will be talking about how the pressures of long working hours, commutes, job insecurities and demands of personal life can leave people feeling over-stretched and struggling to balance work and home.
Other keynote speakers include Bruce Daisley, VP Europe for Twitter, who will talk about ‘Surviving a working world under stress’; Louise Aston, wellbeing director from Business in the Community, who also addressed LionHeart’s John O’Halloran Symposium; and Adam Spreadbury, co-chair of the Bank of England’s Mental Health Network, who will describe its programme including training for managers and a successful employee-led mental health network.
The conference will also touch on health in the workplace, what the future might look like, and how the design and environment of people’s workplaces can improve wellbeing and, in turn, productivity and resilience.
Parita Mardania said: “The Wellness 17 conference is a great opportunity for LionHeart to take part in the wider discussion about health and wellbeing in the workplace and at home. We’re very flattered to have been asked to share some of the work we have been doing to support RICS professionals and are looking forward to hearing about other people’s experiences.”
