Managing Workplace Health: Fit for Purpose

This event is organised by The Workplace Health Leadership Group NI

 

By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees’ work‐life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.

 

Yet many organisations find this a major challenge. There is a myriad of reasons for this including –

a lack of understanding of the benefits of tackling this issue;

 - a failure to see employee health as a priority against other operational demands;

 - a reactive approach to implementing health policies rather than focusing on prevention;

 - a poor evidence base to measure the return on investment of any programmes;

 - and a lack of best practice examples to promote improvements.

This Conference aims to provide attendees with solutions to these five obstacles.
