Lisette shares how she developed her own role as a wellbeing specialist, steaming from the desire to shift from focusing on absenteeism to focusing on improved well-being at work, a feeling of social, psychological, financial, and emotional safety.
Lisette’s role in IKEA is setting the vision and leading the global health & wellbeing portfolio, focusing on building a strong and sustainable health & wellbeing culture through a strategic combination of innovation and evidence-based approaches to accelerate development and achieve short-term and long-term results, aligned with the company strategy, global stakeholders and the outside world trends.
