Over the last 10 years there has been a growing body of evidence showing the financial benefits enjoyed by businesses that implement wellbeing programmes including reduced sickness, improved productivity, reduced staff turnover and generally a happier place to work - ultimately leading to business growth. In addition being a good employer and caring for your staff enhances your businesses reputation and image making your business attractive to work for.
This event will show case the good workplace health practice that has been taking place in South Yorkshire and will include some case studies from a number of local businesses. You will hear about the successes of introducing a health and wellbeing programme and the business benefits that have been achieved. It will give you ideas on workplace interventions and initiatives that you could introduce into your business.
This event will also include presentations on how employers can be pro-active in preventing musculoskeletal injuries and mental health issues -the two most common reasons for long term sickness absence in the workplace.
