Wellbeing and performance: Which one comes first?

Wellbeing and Performance Research Group: Inaugural Symposium

Recent work trends and academic research has extolled the virtues of wellbeing at work.  However, balancing wellbeing and performance is fraught with diverse understandings of wellbeing, cost and resource trade-offs, and competing interests to name a few.

This symposium explores some of the current issues and tensions that exist when balancing wellbeing and performance at work. Topics include diversity in wellbeing; tensions in managing wellbeing; and the wellbeing-performance nexus.
