  • A business case for investing in wellbeing - UEA
  • University of East Anglia
  • Prof Sara Connolly

Considering the wellbeing of your staff is key to being a good employer and a successful organisation. Wellbeing contributes to staff engagement, it helps with retention and enhances productivity. Staff wellbeing is perhaps even more important in these challenging times as employees and managers navigate new ways of working, but how can you tell if you are getting the most wellbeing benefit for the cost of the intervention? This webinar introduces you to cost-effectiveness analysis to support investment choices for improving workplace wellbeing.

Content / Takeaway

In this webinar, Sara will cover:

  • Comparing and assessing the cost-effectiveness of wellbeing activities
  • Collecting the right types of data needed to perform a cost-effectiveness analysis
  • Using the cost-effectiveness calculator

When you register for your place, you will be sent a calendar invitation as confirmation of your place. The invite will include a unique link from Zoom for you to join the video call.
