Employee Health & Wellbeing – Whose Responsibility Is It?

19 November 2014

Trinity House, Trinity Square, Tower Hill, London, EC3N 4DH

Wellbeing of employees has always been a concern for enlightened employers. Certain practices became the minimum standard and as society becomes more health aware, employers are again re-visiting the question of the healthy workforce. This event will deal with a number of major and seemingly discrete challenges faced by organisations including stress, diet, ageing, drink and drugs, sleeplessness and workplace safety.

Who is it for?

HR Directors and managers interested in the importance of an holistic approach to the employment, development and wellbeing of employees as an essential contribution to successful business outcomes.

Overview

Wellbeing of employees has always been a concern for enlightened employers. The paternalism of the Quakers in the early parts of the 20th century was based on a need to provide a basic cover as the state provided little. Certain practices became the minimum standard and as society becomes more health aware, employers are again re-visiting the question of the healthy workforce.

What we are particularly interested in are those employers who take the view that health and wellbeing is a major component in developing a positive ‘employer brand’. Like development, leadership and communication, wellbeing is one of the dimensions that distinguish progressive employers.
Given concerns over state provision of some services (health), some organisations are providing more complete cover for some or all of their employees. ‘Looking after’ important assets is sound business sense.

Certain foods are under media attack for being ‘potentially’ unhealthy. Providers of these very popular products are responding by justifying their positive attributes and taking steps to provide a ‘more healthy’ alternative. Moreover they are demonstrating how lifestyles have to be viewed ‘in total’.

This event will deal with a number of major and seemingly discrete challenges faced by organisations including stress, diet, ageing, drink and drugs, sleeplessness and workplace safety. It will look to illustrate how providing a total wellbeing approach can help create an environment conducive to high performance.

A short report will be produced.
