Labor Challenges - Is Worker Wellbeing the Missing Link?

Dive into a conversation that’s both urgent and overdue. As part of GBL Venture's “Bridge to Action” series, we’re inviting you to explore and discuss everyday labor challenges across various industries, and more importantly, the power of potential solutions.

Event Details:

Date: September 21st

Time: 5 to 6 pm IST

Our focus will be on burning questions that both workers and businesses grapple with:

  • What hurdles do blue-collar workers face today?
  • How do poor working conditions impact both workers and the bottom line?
  • Can we pivot to prioritize worker wellbeing, and how?
  • What's in it for everyone when we get this right?
