Health and wellbeing have become an important strategic consideration for businesses. Increasingly organisations need to focus on both what they do now and how they do it. According to the IOSH report The Health Profit, sickness absence due to mental ill health alone costs the UK economy more than £8bn per year. An organisation that is healthy and well is more likely to be productive, innovative and competitive.
IOSH Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing offers a fresh approach to health training and is designed to provide delegates with the tools and techniques to improve health and wellbeing across their organisation.
This one day course provides essential information for managers and supervisors working in any sector, and for any organisation.
The course will be broken down into the following modules:
A healthy company
