It’s a mark of how far we have come in the wellbeing space that the fear of losing one’s life or a limb doesn’t concern the majority of us at work and that when you ask modern managers about wellbeing in the Workplace, their thoughts often start with mental health issues.So in this chapter, we aren’t going to discuss health and safety because, thankfully, it is well covered elsewhere, and workplaces are safer than ever. So instead, we cover some other areas of physical wellbeing that our guests have discussed.This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:Danny Clarke, Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health and Founder of Simply People | An overview of Occupational Health and how it fits with wellbeing in the WorkplaceAshley Cope, Head of People Partners, EMEA at We Work | How We Work, priorities employee wellbeing Kevin McAlister, Founder of Lift Your Wellbeing | The role of exercise in workplace wellbeingThe Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, ShopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai
This is an area where the responsibility of the employer can be debated. However, the impact is huge.  We have discussed the impact on productivity at work and the impact on the individuals concerned. A lot of effort is going into the subject, and it is an area that we believe pays huge dividends for employers that support their staff.This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:Darren Laverty of Foster Denovo | “Make their money count”Ben Smith, Head of Product, fastP.A.Y.E and Jake Bates, Workplace Wellbeing Specialist, fastP.A.Y.E | The On-Demand Pay space and how the sector is evolving to improve its approach to wellbeingManuel Peleteiro, Founder & CEO of Inbest | How Inbest can open the benefits landscape to thousand of employeesYou might also be interested in these podcasts:Ian Hogg, Chairman, fastP.A.Y.E | How open banking and the NHS are about to revolutionise financial wellbeingNicola Anderson, CEO of Fintech Scotland | How Fintech’s can improve the lot of employee’s financial well-beingLaura Conning, Founder, Citygate Mortgages | Business models that have a profit motive but invest a large amount of their time in doing social good, especially in the area of employee wellbeingThe Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, SHopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai
This is a subject which has become increasingly recognized as an area of employer responsibility.  This is a problem that was often swept under the carpet in the past but is now benefiting from a much more open debate as in recent years the full scale of the problem has become clear.

Chapter 6: Roles and Responsibility.  We were constantly surprised by the link between what you could call standard business practice and wellbeing. This is covered in this chapter which looks at how you select your team, the roles you give them, their responsibilities and other working practices. Tools such as an organization chart and a job description which must be part of management 101 really can have an effect on wellbeing if done properly and this came up time and again.This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:Carolyn Illman, Hiring Coach and Owner, Hire Possibilities | How a great hiring process improves wellbeing at work.Dr Nicole Tschierske, Coach/ Mentor for Women in Science, Tech and Engineering | Improving the working day so that it is less energy-draining and more energy-givingDr Benjamin Ritter, Founder of Live for Yourself Consulting | Putting a square peg in a square hole – job crafting and wellbeingLouise Deverell Smith, Founder of Daisy Chain | Flexible working and its impact on wellbeingYou might also be interested in these podcasts:André Delafontaine, Founder of the Genius Life Academy | Maximizing time spent in your 'Genius ZoneDr Marcus Fila, Professor of Management, Hope College, Michigan | Stress in the workplace and what to do about itSimon Hedaux, Co-Founder, ReThink Productivity | Impact of productivity on wellbeing and how approaching productivity in the wrong way can negatively impact wellbeingTerry McDougall, Author, Executive and Career Coach| Career Happiness and Success on Your Own Terms“The Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, SHopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai” 
Chapter 5: Management System and Process.

Why have a wellbeing strategy –  employer Responsibility and return on investment. It was pretty easy to establish that physical wellbeing is covered by health and safety regulations in most countries around the world. But what about more personal issues such as financial wellbeing, personal fitness and mental wellbeing. What is the responsibility of an employer in these areas?It probably won’t surprise you to hear, but our guests had a strong view that employers did have a responsibility to act – especially in mental health issues because work is contributing to a lot of the issues that cause mental illness. They also believed that even where the responsibility was not with the employer, helping colleagues solve their financial or mental health issues had a clear return on investment for employers as well as being morally the right thing to do.This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:Sue Jauncey, Founder, Appellon | The next-generation workforce, how to increase wellbeing whilst at the same time achieving a company’s goalsSheila Lord, Founder and Director, BMR Health and Wellbeing | Using systematic mental health programs to deliver measurable resultsDr Bob Nelson, President of Nelson Motivation & Mario Tamayo, Principal at Tamayo Group inc. | How to make work funListen to the full book nowThe Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, ShopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai
Chapter 3:  Discovery and establishing a wellbeing strategy. Two themes emerged over the course of our podcast on strategy. They were:Companies didn’t have a strategy. They had free fruit and yoga The need to do some investigation work during a discovery phase before you settle on a strategy. Several of our guests discussed the steps needed to establish a strategy which always started with asking colleagues their point of view and finding out what the wellbeing issues were. Once you know what the issues were, coming up with strategies to improve them was relatively easy. This was called the discovery phase and often involved surveys and workshops.  This chapter includes clips from the following podcasts:Davina Ramkissoon, Health & Wellbeing Director at Zevo Health | Where should you start with a wellbeing strategy?Sue Jauncey, Founder, Appellon | The next-generation workforce, how to increase wellbeing whilst at the same time achieving a company’s goalsDarren Laverty, Founding Partner, Foster Denovo | How we can make an impact on our colleagues and the pitfalls employers should be looking forListen to the full book nowThe Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, ShopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai

As the Workplace Wellbeing Podcast reached the 50th episode we were finding that we were starting to cover the same subjects over again and we also believe that we have now uncovered all of the key themes that will help you become a guru of wellbeing at work.So we have decided that this contribution of ours to the knowledge base of Workplace wellbeing is coming to an end and we won’t be making any more episodes. However,  we wanted to do something to make the 50 episodes more accessible and usable and pull them together as a single resource.  So here we are, The Workplace wellbeing book, although it's not a book, it’s a podcast.We have arranged our book as two podcasts. Part 1 is called “Strategy – setting up your organisation for wellbeing” and covers strategic issues that you should consider as part of your wellbeing strategy. Part 2 is called “Tactics – implementing a wellbeing strategy”. It contains chapters that cover the key areas of wellbeing such as mental and financial wellbeing but also lots of tips to support implementing a wellbeing strategy.

If you haven't listened to that podcast, we recommend you listen as it was one of our best; it is episode 3 of series 2.However, we didn't think a single 25-minute podcast was long enough to cover some of the globally significant subjects in David's book, so we invited David back for a second episode to explore the content of his book in more detail.    In particular, we discuss a key theme of David's book that leaders should adopt wellbeing as their business model, why David believes that and the implications for business.David and Ian discuss:A strategic approach to wellbeingWhy looking after the planet should be at the start of every wellbeing strategyHow ancient wisdom is at the heart of improving wellbeingWhy we should be aiming to thrive and not just surviveHow far Paul thinks the UK and the world still have to goWhat is Inspiring David?Economic Growth Post Brexit: How the UK Should Take on the World by John MillsHow to get in touch with Davidhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/davidrichardgreen/https://www.improveon.co.uk/Click on the link for a free preview of The Age of WellbeingThe Workplace Wellbeing Podcast is supported by The Worktech Group, which owns, SHopWorks, FastPAYE and Solvedby.ai
