Professor Dame Carol Black FRCP FMedSci, Principal of Newnham College and high-level policy adviser on health and work for the government will be the guest speaker at an event in Norwich hosted by Price Bailey Legal Services entitled “Better Workplaces = Better Financial Results”.
The event, on Thursday November 17th at Dunston Hall, Norwich, is designed to offer HR representatives and those involved with managing people the opportunity to discover how improving workplace wellbeing can ultimately improve the bottom line of any business by reducing sickness and staff turnover for example, whilst also boosting productivity.
Anna Harvey, Partner of Price Bailey Legal Services said: “The evidence that having a healthy workforce can reduce sickness absence, lower staff turnover and boost productivity is now irrefutable. Dame Carol is a renowned expert on the subject of workplace wellbeing so we were very privileged that she agreed to join our event.”
“At Price Bailey we are passionate about workplace wellbeing and the benefits it can bring to businesses. We believe that developing clear and tailored strategies to empower individuals to improve their wellbeing will benefit an organisation’s wellbeing, such as profitability,” said Partner of Price Bailey Legal Services, Vikki Pratley. “This is no longer a ‘soft and fluffy’ concept and is fundamental to the ongoing prosperity of organisations.”
Professor Dame Carol Black has held top positions in medicine and now holds high-level policy advisory positions on health and work for the government and is an expert on how the strategic and practical elements of implementing wellbeing programmes can build resilience and tackle stress amongst employees.
The event will also include a case study from a local business who will share how their company has implemented wellbeing initiatives for its employees and the results it has seen.
