  • Episode 34 | Fostering Wellbeing Beyond the Workplace

    Our lives don’t start at 8am when work begins, and they don’t end at 5pm when work is over.

This is important because fostering wellbeing on the city and regional level undoubtedly trickles down to the workplace level. In this episode Dr. Chandra leads us as we explore how companies can actively facilitate wellness beyond the working hours and how it can positively impact the workplace.
