Organisations struggle to attract and retain talent and ensure their workforce and workplace perform to their potential. Leaders are struggling to know how best to organise and deliver work in a post-pandemic environment consistent with the requirements of a new generational workforce.

Make Work Healthy is a why-to/how-to book that charts the course for leaders who want to create resilient, sustainable, and high performing workplaces that will attract talent and engage workers. We share our views on the future of work and the workplace. We believe that the key to success will be an absolute obsession with workforce health. Moving away from tactical, ad-hoc, event-based, HR led wellbeing programs focused on building awareness and driving down sick days to a more strategic approach that is data-driven, evidence-based, and C-suite led. Using a ‘Salutogenic’ approach and a holistic definition, we aim to share an inspirational book and offer many examples of workplace practices to deliver proven steps to success.

Is your organisation known for its people-centered culture?

If the answer is yes, and you are the CEO, or senior executive, we would love to interview you as part of our book research and the possible inclusion in the Make Work Healthy book.

As with any of our research projects, our intent is always to focus on what makes these organisations special and unique and represent both the companies and their people positively.
