Staying safe and sane in the events industry

Raphaela Stadler, Trudie Walters, Allan Jepson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This case applies the Five Ways to Wellbeing in an events context and discusses their wider value as a tool for sustainable HRM. As such, the case is suitable for events, tourism, management or HRM students. The application of the case following a lecture on HRM in events would result in a more in-depth understanding of the stressful event work environment and its impact upon employees’ mental health and wellbeing. If there is no opportunity to deliver a lecture before delving into the case study, as a bare minimum, students should be encouraged to read the suggested article in advance.

The case is designed for 20 – 25 students at second or third year undergraduate level (but could equally be given to postgraduate students); it requires them to be divided into five groups. For larger groups, several teams can do the same wellbeing activity, then compare and discuss their experiences. The optional assessment task can be used as either a group or an individual assessment.
