Workforce health and wellbeing
The health and wellbeing programme seeks to promote a systemic approach to creating healthy workplaces. Health at work is not just about people being physically well. Our ongoing research confirms that physical, social and psychological wellbeing are closely interlinked, and that sickness absence is often a symptom of work stress and low engagement.
Work organisation, job design and management practices are key to the establishment and sustainment of a healthy work environment and in preventing work-related and non-work related health issues from developing or worsening.
