Idealog's definitive guide to the best workplace wellbeing policies from around the world

In New Zealand, we often pride ourselves for being leaders in workplace happiness and having a cruisy, laid back office culture. For the most part our companies are relaxed, our work days are flexible, and our ties can be casually tossed aside on a Friday. Yet some international big players such as Fit-Bit, Airbnb, Google and Twitter go to extreme lengths to make sure their employees are taken care of. We take a look at some the best examples of wellness policies from around the globe.

Data don't lie

If Friday's attacks on two mosques proved anything, it's that one senseless act can leave a nation in despair. But what does the data tell us about human's ability to feel or commit acts of love, versus acts of hate? AUT professor Mike Hutcheson reflects on a Twitter experiment carried out years ago that measured just this – and says there's hope for us yet.

Community engagement

For our upcoming Design Issue, which is focused on the idea of 'decisions with intent', we’re asking the Idealog community to share some examples of when that intent has led to something great, and when it's failed dismally.

Opinion

The spread of fake news online can have far greater impacts than simply shaping public opinion, says professional speaker, business coach, social strategist and author Sarah Pearce.
