Aims and Objectives 

Following on from the success of last year’s wellbeing summit we are pleased to announce another summit for 2021. 

This year the Business of Wellbeing Summit will look at how small, medium and large sized firms, in Ireland, can ensure authentic and integrated wellbeing in the workplace. It will also offer evidence on how positive workplace culture can lead to thriving employees, and, therefore, a thriving business.

The event is targeted at firms and professionals who want to hear from cutting-edge industries about why wellbeing is critical to business. It will appeal to those who are open to novel ideas, self-reflection, a change of attitudes, and increased knowledge in this area.

In more detail, the Business of Wellbeing Summit will: 

  • Share ideas on how to power your firm’s culture with strong workplace relationships and watch productivity and profitability soar
  • Highlight leadership skills to emerge from this crisis stronger than ever before
  • Examine how employee wellbeing links with diversity and inclusion
  • Offer space for reflection on our humanity in the workplace and how to create work cultures that encourage and support greater connection as we return to the office
  • Explore secondary trauma, anxiety and wellbeing

    James Cahill, President Law Society of Ireland will open the Summit
