Health & Well-being Event at the Lauries

  • Thursday, 14th September 2017, 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM
  • The Lauries, 142 Claughton Road, Birkenhead CH41 6EY

Stress at work continues to be a significant cause of sickness absence in the UK. According to a Health and Safety Executive report on sickness absence, stress accounted for 35% of work related health problems and 43% of days lost to sickness. The financial cost of stress related illness is clearly one which will concern any organisation.

The Health & Wellbeing of staff has been proven to have a direct link with an employee’s performance and productivity. Happy employees make businesses more productive. Research has shown that high growth businesses are more likely to recognise the importance of health and well-being in the workplace.

To help provide businesses in the area with all the information required to ensure that their workforce remains healthy and happy, Wirral Chamber of Commerce are hosting a Health & Wellbeing event at the Lauries Centre in Birkenhead on the 14th September.
