Catch-up on the full session:

The third instalment in the Collaboration for Healthier Lives (CHL) Employee Experts Conversation Series, in partnership with Ahold Delhaize, took place on 25 March 2021. Hellen de Leeuw – Jansen, Program Director Benefits at Ahold Delhaize, took a deep dive into the company’s global framework used to drive associate health and wellbeing across each of their brands, and how the brands collaborate and focus on common wellbeing goals. She unpacked associate wellbeing from different angles, highlighting its importance and why it is worth placing at the top of business agendas, while addressing how COVID has shaped the workforce of the future.

Hellen shared practical tips and tools for attendees to take away and implement in their own companies, on ways that wellbeing can be driven across organisations to reach different types of workers, as well as how to deal with decentralised structures and multi-site environments. In addition, she delved into various ways to make wellbeing programmes truly effective within companies, and how to make employees health and wellbeing ambassadors.
