Is wellbeing the solution to recruitment headache?

3 years ago

Recruitment has been named as one of the most difficult challenges faced by growing businesses, as the continuous battle for talent exceeds far beyond paying large bonuses and higher salaries.

Reports suggest that companies investing in improving the health and wellbeing of their staff are reaping the rewards, as candidates are being swayed by flexible working and forward-thinking employers.

On Tuesday 25th September BusinessCloud is holding their ‘Wellbeing: Unlock your business potential’ event, where you’ll hear from some of the biggest names in sports and business.

They will share their insights on how investing in health and wellbeing can transform your company’s culture and ultimately, your bottom-line. The panelists will also be discussing the value of corporate social responsibility and how a healthier workforce can improve productivity.

Cummins Mellor Managing Director, Michelle Mellor has been asked to speak at the event, informing employers how to achieve workplace well-being from a recruitment and employment perspective.

Michelle commented “It’s refreshing to see this focus around attracting and retaining talent for the future. As recruiters, we see on a daily basis the actions that need to be taken to engage and attract the very best talent in every sector. Candidates are in the driving seat and can now pick and choose what the best options are for their career and work. The employers that have worked this out are the ones who will win talent in the end. If people are at the centre of your enterprise, you are nothing without them, this event will prove to be a couple of hours well spent if you are leading your company to the future”

Olympic cyclist Joanna Rowsell Shand, Commonwealth boxing champion Stacey Copeland and Sports Tours International chief executive Chris Bird, will talk about including sport into a company culture. From boardroom yoga to gym membership packages; sporting competitions to breakfast clubs; white-water rafting to adventure holidays abroad; these are just some of the innovative initiatives being taken up by employers to improve the wellbeing of workers.

The breakfast event is being held in partnership with sponsor Sports Tours International, one of Europe’s largest specialist sports travel companies. Spaces are limited but there’s still a chance to register for this free event. Click here to book your place.
