For the Cornwall Festival of Business, LifeMOT is offering two sessions of Business Conversations, an opportunity to explore health and wellbeing in a business context with your peers in other businesses.
According to the CIPD 2018 Annual Survey on Health and Wellbeing at work ‘absence is at an all-time low (5.9 days per employee per year), but
- 83% of respondents say people work when unwell
- 63% say people use their holidays to work, or work when off sick
- 37% report an increase in stress-related absence
The three main causes of stress-related absence according to the survey were:
- workloads/volume of work (62%)
- management style (43%)
- relationships at work (30%).
There are aspects that are clearly working in businesses and some areas for improvement.
We will discuss what is already working in your businesses to ensure a healthy workplace and workforce. We will talk about the benefits of physical, mental, cultural and financial health for the business and for those who work within it.
By comparing notes, experiences and positive stories, you will go away with ideas to apply in your business whilst building new connections within local businesses..
Sessions will take place at:
11am – 1pm
We are limited to 12 people in each session.
