InterSME Breakfast Seminar: Corporate Wellness - Creating engaging, High-performing Work Environments
InterSME Breakfast Seminar: Corporate Wellness – Creating engaging, High-performing Work Environments

The Italian Chamber of Commerce is delighted to invite you to the second InterSme seminar of the year.

The wellbeing and mental health of employees is critical for maintaining sustainable levels of employee engagement, flexibility in the face of organizational changes, motivation, and innovation. By integrating a corporate wellness approach in the workplace, employers can benefit through a positive impact on productivity and business performance.

The majority of an employee’s time is spent at the workplace, and as stress levels and the need for multitasking increases, the need for a wellness program grows. Creating on-site wellness goals, and acting upon them becomes the key to tackle employee illness and stress.

During this breakfast seminar, our panelists will discuss corporate wellness based on their professional and personal experiences and give valuable insights into how SMEs can build wellness programs and create prosperous, high-performing working environments.
