Employment Workshop - Wellbeing in the Workplace
As we enter a new year, our January workshop will focus on the importance of wellbeing in the workplace. Statistics frequently reflect that a supportive workplace environment can have a positive impact on the health of employees which in turn increases productivity, the success of a business and creates a happier workplace environment. Health issues such as noise, dust and chemical hazards remain important however there is a growing acknowledgment that the connection between wellbeing and work includes an understanding of both physical and mental wellbeing in the workplace
The session will focus on the key factors which promote a healthy workplace ranging from the importance of risk assessments to successful employer incentives and the vital role of managers.
We will also consider the emerging acknowledgment of the impact of domestic abuse in the workplace. Whilst all employers understand their duty to provide a safe working environment for their employees, less commonly known is that 75% of victims of domestic abuse are targeted whilst at work. It is estimated that domestic abuse costs businesses in the UK £1.9 billion a year due to decreased productivity, time off work, lost wages and sick pay. Our seminar will explore how employer’s can take proactive measures to help their employees by having a workplace policy on, or which incorporates, the effects of domestic abuse and sends a clear message it is not tolerated in or outside the workplace and that the employer wants to help. Fostering an open and inclusive working environment helps to retain experienced staff, improve employee wellbeing and enhance the organisation’s reputation as an responsible employer.
This session will be of particular interest to directors, business owners, senior managers and HR professionals.
Please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis so please reserve your place early as previous workshops have been over-subscribed.
