Wellbeing in the Workplace

Rockinghorse Children’s Charity and Flexibility Matters are hosting a Wellbeing in the Workplace event in Brighton on the 21 February 2024 with gold-medallist Sally Gunnell OBE.


Presented by Rockinghorse and Flexibility Matters, this event, with panellists S4DWElekta, Float Spa, Stratus Coaching, and Acumen Business Law, and table discussions hosted by Myla Health, Little Jasmine Therapies and Spa, The Agora Clinic, and Sam Rehan – The Wellbeing Motivator, and will include a panel event with experts talking about different facets of wellbeing in the workplace from HR, law, staff engagement, psychology and CSR.

This is a great event for anyone with an interest in, or with responsibility for the wellbeing of their staff team and attendees will have the opportunity to ‘ask the expert’ various aspects of the impact of wellbeing in the workplace.

We are also incredibly excited that Sally Gunnell will be our keynote speaker. Sally won the 1992 Olympic gold medal in the 400 metres hurdles. During a golden 24-month period between 1992 and 1994, Sally won every international event open to her, claiming Olympic Games, World Championship, European Championship, Commonwealth Games, Goodwill Games, IAAF World Cup and European Cup golds in the event, and breaking the British, European and World records in it!

Sally is also a supporter of Rockinghorse Children’s Charity and a wellbeing expert. Sally will share her insights and experiences in how wellbeing impacts performance at the event.

Sally said, “I’m thrilled to be supporting Rockinghorse Children’s Charity as keynote speaker for Wellbeing in The Workplace.  My mission is to provide companies with life-changing solutions, for life-changing health. I work in partnership with organisations to assess the overall health of their employees and then design and implement a program to address these issues.

In this way, I can help make real and lasting change in productivity and performance by sharing the lessons I have learned on the track and provide insights on ways to improve mental and physical resilience.”

Employees wellbeing is playing an increasingly important role in the workplace, with 67% of employees saying they experience moderate to high levels of stress and 72% of staff saying that ensuring wellbeing as the top priority for managers.

While many businesses already have strategies in place, they can always be improved. The event is targeted at CEOs, MDs and HR directors of companies across Sussex with an interest in wellbeing in the workplace and how they can do more for the people that work with them.
