Workplace Wellness Ireland Values

1. Share without expecting anything in return

2. Have fun and respect everyone

3. Make friends, not contacts


As well as the wonderful speakers, the event will be a fantastic opportunity to meet new people that are passionate about wellness in Irish workplaces. There will be a chance to share experiences, to ask questions and to brainstorm future ideas. With this in mind please arrive early to allow plenty of time for chatting and making new friends on the evening.

It won't be possible to answer every single question at the event but don't worry. You can join the Workplace Wellness Ireland group on LinkedIn so you can engage and interact with the community there as well as staying updated on this event and our future meet ups.

The importance of investing in the health of our workforce is slowly being understood. I believe that by working together we can build on the momentum and share this message with many more people while at the same time improving the quality of the services that we offer.

Thanks to our partner sponsor Spectrum.Life for supporting the nationwide growth of the community this year. 

Yours in health,
