Episode #7: Is workplace wellness the next royal commission in Australia?

Too often, professional services firms view staff wellbeing as “something extra” rather than a matter that is inextricably linked to the function and success of that firm.

In this episode of The Wellness Daily Show, Jerome Doraisamy is joined by R U OK? non-executive director Graeme Cowan to discuss the mistakes that workplaces make when it comes to looking after staff wellbeing, the fiscal cost of not creating collegiate, hospitable environments, and the responsibility of boards to not only avoid health issues but proactively promote optimal wellness.

Plus, in case you missed them, check out these recent episodes of The Wellness Daily Show:
