A Shared Ownership for Wellbeing


It is widely accepted that workplace wellbeing is fundamental to establishing a happy, effective, and productive workforce, but who is responsible for owning workplace wellbeing? Achieving a balance of ownership and shared responsibility for wellbeing between an organisation’s leadership team and the workforce that it serves is essential.

Wellbeing should be a shared and celebrated value across any organisation. A diverse group of wellbeing advocates or ‘champions’ can serve as highly motivated custodians for an organisation's wellbeing strategy and the future wellness of its workforce.
