A podcast to support you in building a thriving workplace

While providing fresh fruit and the odd yoga class for staff are important contributors to a well workforce, employers are beginning to realise that these one-off initiatives are only a small part of the wellbeing picture.
Thriving workplaces occur when mentally healthy practices are embedded into the DNA of an organisation – from policy and practice to the way people greet each other in the hallway.

Our ‘More than a Fruitbowl’ podcast series will provide short, sharp episodes for you to download information quickly and on the go! Episodes will provide quick take-aways that people leaders and anyone responsible for the wellbeing of employees can easily apply in their own organisation
