The recent disruption in our world has caused a reshuffling in the parameters that define a great place to work. Mental wellbeing has taken the centre stage and as we evolve into the new world of work, businesses and humans that will thrive are those that are sensitive enough to nurture the mental wellbeing of their most valuable assets- the humans at work.
This development is what informed the theme of the 8th edition of Corporate Wellness Conference, In Good Company: Good Humans, Good Business, a week-long event that is scheduled to hold from the 22nd to the 27th of November, 2021 with virtual activities all week and the on-site grand finale on Saturday, 27th at 3b Thompson Avenue, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Fola explained that the conversation has moved from wellness in the workplace being a nice to have to being a must to have and creating immersive experiences around wellness makes it measurable, impactful and sustainable in terms of Returns on Investment.
