Recruitment has been identified as the number one challenge facing business and the race for talent goes far beyond paying higher salaries and bigger bonuses.

In a competitive marketplace the best candidates can pick and choose where they work and they’re increasingly being swayed by flexible working and forward-thinking employers.

"To lead you have to be physically and mentally in shape to make great decisions, inspire those around you and create outstanding teams. Wellbeing should be a topic high on any executive's priority list." – Phil Jones MBE, MD, Brother UK

There's growing evidence that companies which invest in improving the health and wellbeing of their staff are reaping the rewards through improved productivity and greater staff retention.

From boardroom yoga to gym membership packages; sporting competitions to breakfast clubs; white-water rafting to adventure holidays abroad; these are just some of the innovative initiatives being taken up by employers to improve the wellbeing of workers.

BusinessCloud has joined forces with Sports Tours International to bring together some of the biggest names in sports and business to share insights into how investing in your staff’s health can be transformational.

 We’ll be discussing...

  • Why sport is a fantastic team builder
  • What graduates now expect from their first jobs
  • What employers need to do to keep up the pace
  • How a healthier workforce has improved productivity 
  • Value of corporate social responsibility
  • How a healthier approach has helped staff recruitment and retention 
  • A step-by-step guide on embedding sport into a company culture
