Recent research from over 20,000 workplaces across Europe shows that organisations in which employees enjoy a high degree of autonomy and responsibility, regular opportunities for learning and development, direct participation in decision making, and ‘employee voice’ achieve significantly higher business performance as well as enhanced workforce health and wellbeing. Yet only around one-fifth of companies have these beneficial bundles of workplace practices in place.

What practical lessons can business leaders and decision-makers take from these findings? The webinar will discuss the specific workplace practices that can help businesses achieve these win-win outcomes, the evidence behind them, and how to make change happen in practice.
