Business & Finance, in partnership with Ibec, the group that represents Irish business, is proud to announce the Top 100 Companies Leading in Wellbeing Index 2023
This is the third such iteration of the Index, with it having been first established in 2021.
“We are honoured to be working with our partners Ibec to recognise the companies that place employee wellbeing at the top of their priority list. It is imperative for businesses that the wellness of the entire team plays a core part of their business strategy to cultivate a healthy and rewarding working environment which is crucial for business and employee development,” said Ian Hyland, Publisher, Business & Finance.
In recent years, employee wellbeing has continued to rise further up the agenda for employers. Public awareness of the importance of good workplace mental health and wellbeing is also growing. To move beyond good intention and to realise a true culture of wellbeing, employers must make positive health and wellbeing a core business priority.
