HRreview is this week taking an in-depth look at how health can be maintained and bettered at work. This issue is currently squarely at the forefront of the HR arena, as more and more companies become aware that health and safety should not be considered a barrier to overcome when making change, but rather it is something that will prompt better and stronger change within an organisation.
Businesses large and small are spending more time and budget on supporting their employees by actively monitoring and improving their health and wellbeing. They understand that this leads to a more engaged and more productive workforce.
But how best to do this? Over the next week we will be considering the latest thinking from a range of experts and experienced practitioners on what we feel are some of the key health at work issues in 2016.
