Please join us for the inaugural Wellbeing at Work Conference which takes place on the 11th May. The event includes a keynote speech by renowned workplace psychotherapist Glenn D Rolfsen, a morning of stimulating discussions and breakout sessions.
The conference is part of GibSams’s established Wellbeing at Work initiatives. Research by the World Health Organisation found that a negative working environment can lead to mental health concerns. Many of us spend much of our lives at work; creating positive working environments is at the heart of the charity’s mission as it works to reduce suicides in Gibraltar.
By attending this event, you will gain insights into contemporary occupational wellbeing practices and have an opportunity to delve into topics relevant to your organisation through expertly moderated Breakout Sessions.
