Prioritising Employee Wellbeing to Retain Top Talent


Prioritising employee wellbeing is crucial for retaining top talent. When employees feel that their wellbeing is a priority, they are likely to be more productive, continue to contribute to the success of the business and ultimately, progress their career in the same workplace.

Anthony Priest, Founder and Global Lead for Workplace Health & Wellbeing at Orka Wellbeing, chatted to Business News Wales about his professional career journey and how he gained a passion for supporting local communities and people in the workplace, why he feels businesses simply need to implement a long-term wellbeing strategy and what his advice would be for those struggling with their mental health.
