EXCLUSIVE: Gareth Davies, head of health, safety and environment at Nokia will lead a discussion about understanding the role of HR in wellbeing, and what businesses can do to support their staff in the future, particularly by altering the traditional working day at Employee Benefits Connect 2020.
In the session, titled ‘Understanding the role of HR in the digital tomorrow: Supporting flexible working to meet shifting employee demands’, Davies will outline the role of HR in managing employee wellbeing and flexible working.
Drawing from his own professional background in safety and risk, Davies believes that businesses can do more to encourage team members to look after their wellbeing, positively impacting productivity and engagement.
