EFS Wales Annual Conference: Conversation 4 : Organisational and Business Integrity
23 November 2020 |12:00 pm - 1:00 pm GMT
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?
Contributors: Derek Walker (CEO of Wales Cooperative Centre) in conversation with Richard Selby (IoD Wales National Chair, Chair of Torfaen Strategic Economic Forum, Board Member of Cardiff Capital Region Economic Growth Partnership and Patron and Advisory Committee Member of The Prince’s Trust Cymru) and Professor Rachel Ashworth (Dean and Head of Cardiff Business School).
Sponsors: Engage for Success Wales wishes to thank Wales Cooperative Centre for sponsoring this conversation.
Cost: There is no cost; but we welcome donations to Daring to Dream, our charity partner. Daring to Dream is a charity (No 1190590) working to support the emotional health and wellbeing of patients in Wales.
