This is our little spot for collecting new and interesting items of note in the areas of workplace wellness, including health and safety, employee engagement, and workplace interaction (conflict management, team-building, etc.). We'll also be tracking business issues that impact on employee morale and their general mental health and well-being.

Please note: We have begun to compile the current HR & wellness-related event listings on a separate Events page.
