About Leeds Wellbeing Week
Leeds Wellbeing Week is about bringing together the wellbeing and corporate worlds around a series of wellbeing events both in the corporate environment and in the public space.
According to a recent Financial Times and Vitality Study, UK companies lose 27 days per employee per year because of absence and presenteeism (employees being physically present but not involved).
There’s a bumper programme of events across the city, more information is available from https://www.leedswellbeingweek.co.uk/
