Lincolnshire workplace health and wellbeing conference is back this year with an online version, we will be covering a range of topics reflective of the current global situation and the changing face of the workplace.
About This Years Conference
In response to the global pandemic, we’ve made the decision to run an online conference this year. We want to continue the conversation around workplace (or working from home) health and wellbeing.
As the events of this year have highlighted the health and wellbeing of individuals is key in sustaining a strong organisation.
With the changes in the way we now all live and work, ensuring your employees are healthy and happy is key.
This year’s conference will cover topics that reflect the current situation and how best to navigate through these unprecedented times when it comes to workplace health and wellbeing.
As employers, we have a responsibility to keep our staff well under The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and from extensive research completed, we know that good work is good health.
We believe that healthy people = happy people = productive people!
We are bringing together a range of experts in the field to give you ideas to take away and implement into your business straight away.
