Feedback

Professor Dame Carol Black is Expert Adviser on Health and Work to NHS England and Public Health England presented the awards. She said at the 2017 Workplace Health Conference and Awards“It always gives me great pleasure to return to Cornwall to present the Workplace Health Awards, which go from strength to strength each year. These awards show the commitment of organisations, public and private, large and small, to employees' health and wellbeing. They also acknowledge the relationship between health and wellbeing, engagement and productivity"
