National Health and Welbeing at Work Conference

Date: 7 Mar 2018

Rachel Faulkner from Healthy Workplace Cornwall was asked to present at the National Health and Wellbeing at Work conference last week at the NEC Birmingham. 

Now in its 12th successful year, Health and Wellbeing at Work is all about improving the health and wellbeing of work-aged people. The conference and exhibition provides exciting new ideas and resources to ensure your employees are engaged and motivated, healthy, return to work quickly following absence and stay in work. Profiling national developments, service innovations, examples of best practice and the latest research, it provides an unrivalled learning platform that will energise and inspire.

 

Rachel's seminar was on:

'Tackling Workplace MSDs in SMEs - Challenges and Solutions' which featured some local Cornish case-studies. Please click here  to read the presentation.

Employee Feedback

"As a company BT puts the Health and Wellbeing of its employees extremely high on its list of priorities and at the Consumer Sales Call Centre in Truro we’re very pleased that our work in this area has been recognised by a gold award.  Initiatives that we’ve spearheaded as a result of our involvement in the scheme have included workshops to encourage healthy eating and stopping smoking as well as promoting the use of our on-site gym.   Working towards and achieving the Healthy Workplace Gold Award has been an extremely rewarding process.  The assessment process has provided us with a framework to recognise the actions and activities that are already in place as well as to identify areas in which additional activity could take place"- Tracey Camps, BT Consumer Sales Truro.

Cost of Absence

Average [annual] cost of absence per employee was £666 [CIPD 2008].
