A workplace environment that supports good employee health and wellbeing is proven to improve productivity, reduce absenteeism and presenteeism and produces well-motivated employees.
With most people spending the majority of their waking hours at work, providing opportunities for staff to be fit and healthy in the workplace is more important than ever.
This event will touch on a number of areas where businesses can explore how to support employees with their health and wellbeing, particularly in relation to supporting good mental health, how to support an ageing workforce and how to ensure that you comply with current legislation.
Agenda (details to be finalised)
- Welcome from the Chamber and our host
How to develop strategies to ensure that those employees most in need of support are catered for
Managing executive stress - Unlimited Wellbeing Ltd, Dave Leverton
Understanding that stress amongst leaders is not a weakness, recognising what it looks like, the wider impacts it has beyond the individual and how to adopt effective preventative techniques and intervention initiatives.
The technical bit: the importance and legalities of managing mental health-related conditions in the workplace and practical advice as to the correct procedures to follow when dealing with these situations – Giles Betts and Ewan Carr, Buckles Solicitors
Dealing with employees who are on long term sickness due to mental health-related conditions are situations which many business either have faced, or will face in the future. It’s therefore important to ensure that mental health conditions are recognised and addressed correctly. The law surrounding this delicate subject is complex and these situations often need to be handled with care both in order to ensure the employee is looked after and, hopefully, can make a successful return to work, and to ensure that the employer does not fall foul of discrimination legislation.
We will hear about the importance of managing mental health-related conditions in the workplace, the legal framework, the steps employers can take to reduce mental health issues in the workplace and how to ensure that employee sickness and long term absence is managed correctly.
