Wednesday, 28 February, 2018 - 18:30 to 21:00

The BTN is delighted to bring you the latest event in partnership with Bob, the people HR platform.

In this digital age of constant distractions, it's gotten more difficult to stay focused and productive. Seriously, how can we expect to get anything done while being relentlessly bombarded by push notifications? On top of this, many growing companies now encourage employees to work longer hours and multitask. However, recent studies have found that overwork and multitasking ultimately wear us out physically and deplete us emotionally.

Is there a way for companies to prevent burnout by cultivating employee well being? 

Dana Zelicha, a world-renowned mindfulness lecturer, and Hope Bastine, a mindfulness & lifestyle psychology expert, will explain how practising mindfulness in the workplace can combat mental health issues, boost productivity and make employees happier.
