About Workwell Leaders
Started in May 2018 as an action-oriented community of leaders, WorkWell Leaders became a company limited by guarantee in August 2021 as Singapore’s only non-profit collective of CEOs and leaders singularly focused on championing workplace mental health and wellbeing as a strategic priority and board agenda, beyond merely a HR responsibility. Our mission is to build mentally healthy and thriving workplaces across Singapore as a community of leadership practices and cross sector collaboration so that employee mental wellbeing becomes a foremost urgency for employers. CEOs and their organisations join WorkWell Leaders as members to learn from, and with each other, through closed door, invitation-only quarterly learning lunches and half yearly CEO breakfast dialogues as well as other leadership programmes and implementation and benchmarking resources.

Our Chairperson's Message
Mental wellbeing is a human condition and therefore uniquely personal. Our state of mind is often not visible to others, sometimes not even to ourselves. We spend most of our waking hours at work but how aware are we of the mental health challenges that we and our co-workers may be facing? What about the entrenched stigma (social, self and structural) that still exists against mental health at the workplace that prevents help-seeking and compromises on the wellbeing of so many to live meaningful lives?
I had my personal brush with depression at the height of my professional career in 2006 as a leader and entrepreneur, and know how debilitating this can be. Focusing on C-suite leaders, not only to make them be aware of the issue of mental health as a strategic challenge, but also for them to recognise their own vulnerability by providing them access to resources to support them and their people - these first intents lay the foundation of WorkWell Leaders.
I am grateful and proud of how WorkWell Leaders has evolved. We started as a group of like-minded leaders and believers coming together to support each other in championing for mentally healthy workplaces through culture change. This action-oriented leaders community has since become an incorporated organisation with a team of hired professionals and a robust pipeline of upcoming programmes, in addition to our quarterly learning lunches and signature CEO breakfast dialogues.
I welcome you to join us. Let's be well and lead well, together.
Collective Commitment At The 1St WWL CEO Dialogue
On 17 October 2019, WWL’s first CEO Breakfast Dialogue was launched and hosted by member PwC Singapore as a unique closed-door, by invitation-only forum for CEOs to learn from, and with each other about leadership behaviours and practices for themselves personally as well as their roles as leaders to change workplace culture to building mentally healthy and thriving workplaces. Each CEO also nominated a "plus one" from their organisation to attend with them. Business Luminary Hsieh Fu Hua was the guest speaker who shared his personal mental health journey. As a show of commitment, 17 CEOs and Leaders collectively committed, as a WorkWell Leaders Community, to champion mental wellbeing as a leadership priority.
