Fluctuating conditions, fluctuating support: Launch of the second Health at Work Policy Unit Paper
Thursday, 22 January 2015
14:30 - 16:30
The Work Foundation’s Health at Work Policy Unit (HWPU) launched its second policy paper on fluctuating conditions.
The paper looks at the role of policy in improving organisational resilience to fluctuating conditions in the workforce. It considers the challenges faced by employers in managing a workforce where the prevalence of chronic and fluctuating conditions is set to rise. It explores the kinds of support which employers will need from doctors and other healthcare professionals, from the welfare and benefits system and from other agencies such as the Fit for Work Service, Access to Work, Occupational Health services and patient advocacy groups. It also assesses whether policy-makers have scope to do more to create a system of incentives and support for the many employers who wish to do more but lack access to advice, resources or support.
The event included a presentation on the findings of the report by Professor Stephen Bevan, followed by keynote speeches, and a roundtable discussion.
Attendees included policy makers, employers, charities and clinicians.
