PREVIEW: WELLBEING THROUGH WORKING LIFE

For many of us, our satisfaction with life declines from our late teens until our mid-40s and then starts increasing again as we approach our late 60s – a pattern that suggests our lowest wellbeing happens during our working lives. Is this pattern inevitable? A team of researchers at the University of East Anglia together with researchers at the Universities of Essex, Reading and Sheffield have spent the past three years investigating the actions that can protect and enhance wellbeing looking at wellbeing in working age adults. Join us for this talk to find out more, and if you would like to submit a question in advance for Prof Kevin Daniels and Prof Olga Tregaskis, please email business@uea.ac.uk
