Employee Health and wellbeing is among the Top 2 Priorities of every Business Leader today and has become an absolute ‘Must Do,’ and not just ‘Good to Do’ for every individual and Corporate.

The Great Place to Work® Workplace Wellness IndexTM is a benchmark for India Inc. that enables organisations to build a culture that fosters health and inspires high performance. The framework also encourages the employee to take ownership of their own wellbeing – (#PassiveToActive)

The Health and Wellness Summit is specially curated to bring learning from global experts and industry leaders committed to building emotionally and psychologically healthy workplaces.

Last year Great Place to Work® partnered with MediBuddy to launch the only public study in the space of workplace wellness. The summit will also feature key highlights of this pioneering research on workplace and honour the inaugural list of ‘India’s Best Workplaces in Health and Wellness 2020.’

We are delighted and proud to announce our Keynote Speaker Guy Winch, a globally renowned licensed Psychologist, and expert on emotional health. Guy advocates for integrating the science of emotional health into our daily lives and brings the latest research findings in emotional health to organizations, companies, and events worldwide.

His areas of expertise include managing the psychological challenges of daily life, building emotional resilience, increasing productivity and functionality, improving workplace and personal relationships.

This summit will see the presence of leaders and senior professionals across 22+ industries to learn from the best, and network with like minded people to exchange knowledge and experience.
