The event:

The Work Foundation, alongside The Bank Workers Charity and Robertson Cooper, are carrying out a crucial piece of research on work and non-work issues affecting employees performance in the UK’s banks.

Professor Cary Cooper, a world leading expert in work-related wellbeing, introduced this ground-breaking research; reminding us of the growing complexity in the roles individuals have inside and outside work and highlighting the urgency in understanding how non-work pressures can affect our wellbeing and performance.

This was followed by a presentation on our early research findings, which outlined:

• The key non-work pressures experienced by bank workers affecting their health, wellbeing, engagement and ability to cope at work
• Key differences in experiences for men, women, levels of income and employment status
• Early insights into support needed by bank workers to remain productive and engaged at work.

Chief Executive of the Bank Workers Charity, Fred Payne, has written a blog about the outcomes from the event so please take a read.
