Workplace Wellness Festival is now in its fourth successful year. Launched as a physical conference and exhibition in 2019, the event pivoted to a virtual format during the COVID-19 epidemic. Growth accelerated as the wellbeing of employees became a top item on the corporate agenda. In the post-COVID-19 world, attracting employees back to the workplace and managing remote workers remain big issues that continues to drive attendance.
