Global perspective on holistic workplace wellbeing programs

Posted by mediac0rp

Breckon Jones, Former Head of Total Reward & Global Head of Wellbeing at American Express and Andrew Barrett, Chief Connector of Safety on Tap, had a chat on “Global perspective on holistic workplace wellbeing programs”

The conversation took the audience through a few key points of today’s workplace wellbeing programs:

  • Why effective wellbeing is more than physical, mental and emotional health promotion.
  • The cultural nuances of health and wellbeing in the workplace and how to address this with a compelling strategy.
  • Why ROI is the wrong metric for evaluating wellbeing at work.

Global HR leader, currently heading total rewards for Australia and NZ, and managing the global employee health COE strategy. The innovative initiatives I’ve led have enriched multi-billion dollar companies’ missions to attract top talent, engage, motivate and reward high performance, and deliver excellent customer service within a culture of wellbeing. I have broad geographical HR experience and deep subject matter expertise in all facets of reward. Strengths lie in change management, People leadership and complex problem solving.

I love solving challenges with people. I also love sharing. There are so many challenges to work on, and many being solved every day – let’s share it around, share some stories and learn. Part of my sharing is by hosting the newest and freshest podcast around – Safety on Tap: for leaders wanting to grow themselves and drastically improve health and safety along the way
