IE Business School Challenge: A Spotlight on Well-being
Join us for this session!
We’re excited to invite you to take part in IE Business School’s latest challenge: “A Spotlight on Well-being.” This is your opportunity to get in the shoes of workplace decision-makers to answer the vital question, “How do we improve employee well-being?”.
Participate in the challenge and apply to our Master in Talent Development & Human Resources Fall 2023 intake, and you could win one of three scholarships.
The industry needs your help. According to the Future Workplace 2021 HR Sentiment Survey, 68% of senior HR leaders rated employee well-being and mental health as a top priority. Your challenge is to place “A Spotlight on Well-being,” by designing a sustainable plan that considers the blend of physical, emotional, social and career factors that comprise holistic well-being in the workplace.

- Develop a strategy on how to improve workplace well-being if you were the CEO of an international company.
You must submit either a video recording of yourself or a written essay explaining your strategy.
Your video must be between two to three minutes long, or if the format is written, a maximum of three pages.
