HEY Workforce! Helping Your People Flourish.

About this event

Your people are your most important asset. If they are healthy, motivated and adequately skilled the chances are you’re a productive and successful organisation. The benefits of nurturing your people cannot be underestimated.

Good health and wellbeing are essential to successful, sustainable workplaces. From a business perspective, greater health and wellbeing among the workforce results in higher productivity due to fewer days lost because of sickness, illness, lower absenteeism, presenteeism and reduced costs. For the wider economy, health and wellbeing can increase production capacity through greater economic activity rates. The economic cost of ill health on the UK’s economy is estimated at £100 billion each year and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities have estimated that the cost for the HEY region is around £872 million per annum.

Join the HEY LEP and partners to learn more, hear about local initiatives and support for your business and be part of the launch of our exciting new HEY Workforce project.
