How Companies are Creating Places of Work to Solve 21st Century Business Challenges

Lawrence Mitchell spoke at the Ikabo breakfast event aimed at leaders who want to improve workplace wellbeing.

He spoke about his experience of creating the Reed Business Information LivingWell programme which increased employee engagement by 10%, reduced absenteeism by 40% and motivated 82% of the 3,000 globally distributed employees to make changes to their personal health. This programme went on to win the 2016 CIPD Award for “Best Health & Wellbeing Initiative” in just 2 years.

Other speakers included Alex Lynch from Google Australia, Brett Fifield from NSW Department of Primary Industries, Cindy Lenferna de la Motte from Ikabo and Natalie Yan-Chatonsky from Full Time Lives.
