This is the first guest post Lawrence wrote for Thrive Global, Arianna Huffington's health & wellbeing website, which is based on people gaining extraordinary health inside the workplace, attaining wellness and avoiding the stress and burnout that often comes with working in an organisation. In this post, Lawrence shares his story on how he came to be passionate about wellbeing in the workplace, and how he developed a nationally-receognised award-winning health & wellbeing initiative in his organisation of 3,000 employees, in just 2 years.
Modern workplaces are changing rapidly driven by disruptive digital technology which has forced whole industries to transform. Behind every great success is a person, and people are under extreme stress and their health is suffering as a consequence. Our goal is to provide environments in which employees can thrive, so producing their best work.
