Being fit and well for the workplace

Organised by NRG4LIFE as part of Huddersfield Business Week.

Absenteeism in the workplace… Did you know that sickness absence costs UK businesses an estimated £30 billion each year?! The average worker takes nearly 7 days off each year due to sickness and/or poor health. The most common causes for long term absence last year were stress, acute medical conditions, mental ill health and musculoskeletal injuries. The most common causes for short-term absence were minor illness, stress, musculoskeletal injuries and mental ill health.

What to do about it:

Invest in workplace health and wellness initiatives to help minimise absenteeism and poor productivity. This will help you to create a healthy physical and mental workplace culture.

More than half of UK companies now say that they have a wellness strategy in place, designed to keep employees fit, happy and productive. Are you one of those? Have you got good intentions to implement this, but don’t know where to start?

This session will provide you with:

  • The facts around employee absenteeism, caused by unhealthy habits and what to do to combat this.

  • How you as an employer can address these issues, tackle them head on and provide employee support to create a happier, healthier and more productive workforce.

Join Adam Batchelor, founder of NRG4LIFE, for a one hour session to learn about how he can help you, and more importantly how you can help your employees!
