You can create a healthier, happier workplace
We've lived and worked through challenging times and now we're returning to a different world of work. Organisations face a range of health and wellbeing management issues, including:
- Reassessing risks for a workforce with a blend of home-working, office working and somewhere in between.
- Well-documented mental health issues in this phase of the pandemic include anxieties about the return to the physical workplace.
- More fluid work arrangements in office including hot-desking, which raises ergonomic issues.
- At a strategic level, Boards need strategies for resilience and business continuity. The 'healthy hybrid' will become the norm.
IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing, brought to you by International Workplace, is the management training solution to help you address these issues effectively and ensure your teams remain happy, healthy and productive.
