British Safety Council to hold free workplace wellbeing conference

The importance of wellbeing in the workplace has increased dramatically over the past year as organisations of all sectors and sizes look to adapt to completely new ways of working.

To address this, British Safety Council is to hold a conference exploring the ways in which employers can develop effective wellbeing solutions for their employees whilst highlighting how this can improve their overall performance.

  • The Wellbeing in the Workplace Conference is free to attend for all organisations interested in developing and implementing a wellbeing strategy and will take place remotely on the 20th January 2021
  • The agenda for the conference includes insight from expert speakers, such as Professor Sir Cary Cooper, speaking on the business benefits of managing wellbeing for organisations and Professor Dame Carol Black covering the topic of wellbeing in the workplace
  • In order to ensure the protection of employee wellbeing throughout the pandemic, British Safety Council also launched Live Online in 2020, offering a range of remote courses from mental health workshops to nationally recognised health and safety qualifications

As the number of COVID-19 cases continues to be on the rise, resulting in a third national lockdown, it is more important than ever that employers look to safeguard their employees’ physical and mental wellbeing.

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council said: “This pandemic has challenged all of us like never before, whether its facing the blurred work-life balance of remote working or the need to take increased safety precautions in the workplace, our daily lives continue to be defined and disrupted by the new reality. As a result, employees are looking to their employers for guidance like never before and are expecting to see established principles in place to protect their physical and mental wellbeing.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we feel organisations should be given the tools to address wellbeing in their workplace. We are offering this free conference to help others navigate their way through workplace wellbeing during these challenging times.”

The conference will take place on 20th January 2021 and is free to attend. Spaces on the event are limited and those interested can sign up here:
