Conversation 4 : Organisational and Business Integrity
The conversation will explore the potential of a reframing of the wellbeing goals, by placing a values-based economy as a central well-being goal into which all of the other six feed in. Could such a re-framing be a driver for values-based business and economy in Wales, delivering on the fourth enabler of employee engagement?
