Changing the game on business language and wellness

Presented by Sarah Bulkeley and Julie O’Brien,

OD Advisor and OD Manager at Simpson Grierson

 At Simpson Grierson are very mindful of the high rates of depression, anxiety and mental health issues that exist in the legal profession (3.6 times more likely to suffer than other professions).  They have a robust wellbeing programme that has been running for 10 years, but for all the nutrition, financial, fitness and onsite wellness expos - they knew people were still stressed and suffering.  So, they got really serious, and put mental health at the top of our priority list.  

In this webinar Sarah Bulkeley will present how Simpson Grierson changed the game with their approach to wellness.

Game Changer of the Year 2018 Julie O’Brien will present on the other area that the OD team worked to transform - the language used by everyone in the business. You’ll hear the challenges and the successes and how this has impacted on the whole company culture.
