Today we’re going to be talking about employee wellness which is predicted to become one of the most important parts of workplace strategy going forward. Millennials and Gen Z are health-conscious employees who are choosing to work at companies that care about their well-being. That’s not going to change after the COVID-19 crisis is over; it will only intensify.
We’re speaking to Khavitha Singh, who is an alumna of the UCT GSB’s MBA programme and is currently Academic Head: Lean Management at Toyota Wessels Institute for Manufacturing Studies.
Thielshad Karriem, is currently an MBA student at the UCT GSB and a member of the committee organising the annual Women in Business conference, which will take place virtually, for the first time in its 21 years of existence, in August.
One of the key objectives of the annual WiB conference is to raise funds for a scholarship to the UCT GSB for candidates who would otherwise be financially excluded.

Dr Solange Rosa, has just been appointed as the new director of the Bertha Centre for Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the UCT GSB. Dr Rosa – an activist, academic, policy and strategy advisor and former public servant – joins the Centre on the eve of its tenth anniversary and at an extraordinary time in human history, when the world is transitioning to a ‘new normal’. “The COVID-19 pandemic and sweeping Black Lives Matter protests across the world are demanding a new response from us,” says Dr Rosa. “And an institution such as the Bertha Centre – that is firmly rooted in research and actively challenging the status quo, connecting different sectors and communities, and promoting innovative responses to achieve social impact – is needed now more than ever to help us to reimagine how the world could work.”LISTEN TO PODCAST
