There are now over 22 nations around the world that have new measures of wellbeing that go beyond traditional Gross Domestic Product Measures. But interestingly, over thousands of years Indigenous Nations have developed a myriad of wellbeing concepts and principles that could inform on new approaches to wellbeing measures, practices and indexes. 

Our webinar will explain why ‘wellbeing’ is such a fundamental principle for your Indigenous Strategy. Indigenous concepts of wellbeing can deeply inform how workplaces can best be designed and structured and be of benefit to your entire workforce. 

In the post-Covid era, there have been major structural changes to workforce practices including remote, hybrid and blended models. Today employers are under increasingly higher levels of scrutiny to explain how they are looking out for their employees’ wellbeing while addressing labour force productivity and shortages. 

We will provide some background on wellbeing and how this concept is taking root in different ways with Indigenous concepts of wellbeing in your workplace. We will examine not only cultural dimensions but fundamental values and principles such as social cohesion and social capital. Prosperity, governance, community health and healing and the interconnectedness to suitable and affordable housing, food security, societal confidence levels and trust will be examined thru and Indigenous wellbeing lens.
