Workplace Health Conference & Awards 2017

Date: 28 Feb 2017

On Monday 27th February 2017, we held our 9th Workplace Health Conference & Award Ceremony at the Royal Cornwall Showground. We celebrated with the efforts of 361 businesses from a variety of sectors across the county.

Workplace Health awards bronze, silver and gold level awards based on the achievements of the businesses throughout the year. Workplace health is recognised as a big factor in tackling levels of sickness absence, particularly with workplace related stress. Some of the businesses have taken a focus on men’s health, given that they are less likely to admit that they need to seek help.

We were super pleased that Dame Carol Black was able to support the day and was our Keynote speaker. Please see her presentation here.

St. Austell Brewery won a gold award on their first year of taking part in the programme. Chrissie Knight, Occupational Health Manager for the brewery, commented, “Caring for and investing in the workforce has always been a priority at the Brewery and it is wonderful to gain recognition for the work that takes place at all levels to ensure that we remain an employer of choice for people in the South West, which is not only because of the opportunities that exist at many levels within the organisation, but also because of the support and benefits that exist for all employees”
