Employee wellbeing – corporate responsibility or business imperative
Businesses often believe that if they implement a mental health programme in the workplace, they’ve addressed employee wellbeing.
That’s not true. Why? Well, two reasons.
I’ll share with you what best practise looks like and the myriad of benefits to the business when wellbeing is a real and authentic element of your business culture. We’ll also look at the emerging conversation about the costs and the legal implications of getting it wrong.
During the session we’ll discuss how this impacts and possibly changes the role of a leader who now needs to carefully balance empathy, ego and emotional intelligence in both themselves and their teams.

Eileen’s 20-year career has focused on supporting companies to build purpose-driven business strategies and workplace cultures, by responding to, and investing in, the most relevant issues, from climate change to mental health. She understands a diverse range of issues across many sectors and is now focused on the growing recognition of a company’s responsibility to maintain and improve wellbeing in the workplace.
She believes that investing in employee’s resilience and positive mental health is critical to successfully achieving bottom-line productivity. It is a company’s investment in its human capital that ensures an effective bridge between strategy development and strategy implementation.
Eileen currently works with organisations who want to proactively build healthy, productive and motivated workforces through a holistic approach to developing wellbeing programmes, with an emphasis on mental health. As well as developing bespoke mental health awareness courses, she is a licensed instructor for Mental Health First Aid. Through her programmes Eileen reduces the stigma of mental health by increasing awareness and training employees to be a critical point of intervention for those experiencing poor mental health in the workplace. The result is an open, supportive work environment where employees can bring their whole self to work, thereby creating a healthier and happier workforce.
With strong influencing skills Eileen has worked successfully with people from all levels within an organisation and has experience working alongside management board, C-suite and board committees.
Eileen has highly tuned interpersonal skills, an ability to adapt to different organisational cultures and a natural ability to create strong and trusted relationships.
