It is becoming widely accepted that wellbeing at work is essential to overall wellbeing and can have a profound impact on individuals, organisations and societies. Emerging research indicates that a healthier workforce is a more productive one, with fewer sick days taken and higher productivity when at work. As a result of this, more and more organisations are introducing initiatives to help protect and promote staff health and wellbeing. But does anyone measure if it’s really improving health and if so, how do organisations go about it?

This presentation will discuss some of the findings from RAND Europe’s latest publication commissioned by Public Health England (PHE): Promising practices for health and wellbeing at work: A review of the evidence landscape.
