Middle East Employee Wellbeing Summit’24

The Middle East Employee Wellbeing Summit is poised to become the region’s foremost platform for exploring and advancing employee well-being initiatives. Scheduled for May 28th – 29th, 2024 in Metropolitan Hotel Dubai, this summit is set to revolutionize organizational approaches to employee welfare, addressing critical issues affecting the workforce in the Middle East.

In today’s corporate landscape, the well-being of employees is paramount, recognized as a cornerstone of organizational success. The global workforce faces escalating challenges, from chronic illnesses to mental health concerns, placing a significant strain on both employers and the economy at large. According to recent studies, workforce unwellness could be costing the global economy up to 15 percent of its annual output.

The Middle East is not exempt from these challenges. A survey conducted by the McKinsey Health Institutes in 2022, encompassing four thousand employees across the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, revealed alarming rates of poor mental health and well-being among two-thirds of respondents. Anxiety, depression, and distress symptoms were prevalent, mirroring a global trend.

The Middle East Employee Wellbeing Summit emerges as a response to these pressing issues. With a focus on the latest initiatives and strategies, the summit aims to empower organizations to transform their well-being strategies effectively. From tackling chronic diseases to mitigating rising healthcare costs, this summit provides a comprehensive roadmap for fostering a healthier and more engaged workforce.
