Senior figures from the UK banking industry will meet in London next month to discuss the future of employee well-being in the sector.
Executives from Santander, Lloyds and HSBC will present their approaches in supporting their employees and will lead debate on the lives of modern bank workers and the pressures that they face.
The Good Day at Work Conference - organised by well-being experts Robertson Cooper, in conjunction with the Bank Workers Charity – will explore pioneering new work in the banking sector as well as featuring input from high profile mental health campaigner Paul Farmer, CEO of charity, Mind.
The event comes after the recent release of new research from the Bank Workers Charity, in partnership with Robertson Cooper and The Work Foundation. This in-depth research looked into the work and non-work pressures faced by bank workers. Their Bank on your People report sampled over 500 employees and identified four specific groups defined by their work-life balance and levels of engagement at work.
Professor Cary Cooper CBE, Founder of Robertson Cooper and recently voted the second most influential HR thinker, says that sharing learning throughout the banking sector is vital: 'Banks share common HR challenges but rarely have the opportunity to collaborate and share their approaches – the foresight of the Bank Workers Charity and events such as the Good Day at Work Conference will inform the provision of better integrated stress and mental health support'.
The Good Day Work Conference is taking place on November 13th, to discuss well-being strategy with a specific stream focused on the banking sector.
