James’ Top Topics for 2023:

The future of workplace wellbeing: Are we tackling underlying problems when we design workplace wellbeing programs or simply offering a ‘sticking plaster’? Find out how to apply the latest scientific research and new technology to uncover root causes and solutions to support wellbeing in the workplace.

The new ‘worth-it’ equation: What people want from work and what they’re willing to give in return has changed. In particular, wellbeing plays a greater role. 71% of employees feel that companies need to play a greater role in their overall welfare, wellbeing and happiness. How can organisations address this expectation while supporting high productivity levels?

Marking remote work work: The work-from-home revolution has brought many benefits – some studies indicate that home-working led to a 13% performance increase. However, there can also be unexpected downsides, such as social isolation and an increased likelihood that people work while sick. How can we use an evidence-based approach to enable employers and employees to make the most of remote and hybrid work?

Managing stress and switching off when we need to do: 70% of employees say they struggle to switch off from work. This trend is driving up stress and burnout across workplaces. Find out how we can improve our ability to recover during the workday and at home to support wellbeing and performance.

Sleep, wellbeing, and performance: As demands on workers continue to grow, time for sleep is often reduced. And even if you can go to bed when you want to, many people struggle to fall and stay asleep. More than 1 in 3 people don’t sleep enough, meaning they don’t sleep for at least 7 hours per night. Find out how to take a scientific evidence-based approach to address these challenges and make sleep the ‘superpower’ for your employees.

Supporting high performance and wellbeing: In an increasingly competitive economic climate, high performance and wellbeing can seem like they are in conflict. However, this is not the case. We can learn from top performers in sport and business to transform stress and challenge into an opportunity for growth and peak performance.

Building a healthy high, performing body and brain: We are becoming increasingly aware of the links between physical health and cognitive performance, but our high-stress, sedentary working lives often block us from enjoying the benefits of this association. Find out how exercise, nutrition, and sleep improve stress management and support peak cognitive performance in your teams.
