Link, Wellbeing & Performance?

The question is what has workplace performance got to do with wellbeing?

At Mad for Health we know the answer is “everything”.

There is an overlap, a link, an interdependency between performance and wellbeing.

If you want quality workplace performance you need to invest in enabling wellbeing.

It is why investment in a targeted Corporate Performance-Wellbeing Program is an essential part of a company’s talent management plan.
