Wellness has been around for centuries, but it’s been a more recent arrival in the world of work. It’s grown into a massive global industry, often accelerated by the rise of technology.

Is ‘well working’, as we’ve called it in this special issue, all hype, or really worth the attention (and investment) it’s getting? The latest edition of OBSERVE magazine dives deep to get the answers.


Beyond the FitBit

Wellbeing and health is a serious matter for countries facing diseases such as diabetes and dementia. How will these looming epidemics affect the workplace? What can leaders do about it now? We mount a major investigation and find out what Singapore is doing to prevent disease rather than cure it.

Of course, you can’t tackle wellbeing at work without mentioning mindfulness. It seems to be everywhere. We pay it plenty of attention to uncover whether there’s enough research to take it seriously.

We’ll guide you around the office buildings, companies and countries built for happiness, and take a long, hard look at stress and how to build your personal resilience to cope with tough times and high pressure.

Brain food

If you’re feeling digitally overwhelmed (aren’t we all?), there’s good advice on how to switch off. And, just for good measure, eight ways to make your brain more productive.

Which are the best apps to aid well working? How does your brain work at work? Where are the happiest nations on earth? What’s the best way to enjoy working independently?  Just some of the other questions we ask, and answer, in OBSERVE 14, the well-working issue.

We hope you’ll find plenty to debate in this issue and discover some useful advice and tips along the way. In short, we hope ‘well working’ works for you.
