Arti Kashyap-Aynsley started her career by qualifying as a Chartered Accountant, whilst also embarking on a 15-year journey in the Professional Services Sector. She has worked between all of the audits, tax and advisory services, spending the largest chunk of her time in the world of Management Consulting, where she focused on large scale Finance Transformation programmes that had her looking at strategy, learning and development, stakeholder and change management, technology implementations, process improvement, executive coaching and other things alike.
Working and travelling the globe opened Arti's eyes up to the impacts of what our working lives can have on our overall wellbeing, along with the truth behind not being able to easily compartmentalise the lives we live between home and work. With the experience she gained in her career, she decided to pivot a few years ago into the world of wellbeing, where she first worked with Deloitte in Consulting in the UK, to design, develop and deliver on a comprehensive wellbeing strategy that was linked to the overall business focus. By being able to create positive shifts and change in the business, Arti was inspired to continue to grow in this area and is now leading the Ocado Group Globally from a wellbeing standpoint. Outside of her day to day working life Arti continues to emulate a life committed to the wellbeing agenda as she is also a qualified life coach and personal trainer, as well as an Advisor to organisations such as Mind and the Allbright on topics surrounding the Responsible Business Agenda.
2020 was a year that will and has gone down in history for so many reasons. One of which has been the impact it has had on the wellbeing agenda in organisations. You could argue that wellbeing was always on the agenda of organisations, but what 2020 did was elevate it, move the conversations years ahead and increase the accountability that lays at the heart of businesses. What all of this in turn did was to increase the need for roles such as the "Wellbeing Leader." And whilst this is something very exciting, it is also something quite challenging. There is no roadmap for roles such as this and one would likely classify it as a "trailblazing role". So how then do we obtain success? How do we create impact, and not just be seen as a leader that is there simply to address a tick box exercise? In this session join Arti Kashyap-Aynsley, Award-winning global wellbeing leader, as she breaks down the environment we are in currently, the challenges we face and most importantly some key strategies to help navigate this highly visible and impactful role.
