Duration: 1 day course

Most people in full employment spend the bulk of their waking hours in work. The workplace, both from an environmental and interpersonal context, can have a powerful effect on the health of employees. How healthy a person feels impacts on their productivity, and how satisfied they are with their job in turn
affects their own physical and psychological wellbeing. Sickness absence costs UK employers around £12.2 billion each year. The cost of making reasonable
adjustments to keep an employee who develops a health condition or disability will almost certainly be far lower than the cost of recruiting and training a new
employee.

“This course will assist managers to create a healthy and productive work environment.”
