As the city returns to its former fast-paced glory and Londoners return to the office, workplace wellbeing and mental health are at the forefront of our minds.

Despite the purpose that millions of us find in our work, this week a study by Glassdoor revealed that talk of burnout has increased 128 per cent since April, while two-thirds of people say they feel the need for a better work-life balance. Meanwhile, work-related stress, depression and anxiety is rising, with an estimated 17.9 million working days last year lost for these reasons alone.

Accordiong to recent research, work-life balance is now the number-one driving force when choosing an employer, overtaking salary for the first time in seven years. Workplace wellbeing is much more than meditation apps. While Google teaches teams the Charleston, and Deloitte might drop off doughnuts on employees’ doorsteps, what’s really needed is a holistic approach, not just a stylish sticking plaster.

That’s why this paper is partnering with The Watercooler for an event on February 23 and 24: the largest expert-led celebration of workplace wellbeing in the UK with more than 120 speakers. Plus, we’ll be having our own little chat round the watercooler in this column about what will make a real difference. After all, what’s the point of benefits like a free gym if you’ve no time to use them? A happier workplace is more productive, and prevention is better than cure, so we’ll be exploring solutions that cover the foundations of wellness, from nutrition, sleep and fitness, to mental resilience and your working environment, as well as personal growth and finance. See you by “The Watercooler”.

The Watercooler will include 5,000 workplace wellbeing professionals, 120+ speakers and 120 hours of free learning.
