IOSH Occupational Health & Wellbeing

Health and wellbeing have become a strategic consideration for businesses. Increasingly organisations need to focus on both what they do and how they do it. According to the IOSH report The Healthy 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.

Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing offers a fresh approach to health training. You’ll find a practical programme, full of step-by-step guidance, and a sharp business focus. But you’ll also find that the content engages and inspires your staff – critical to getting the message embedded across the whole organisation.

Why Managing Occupational Health and Wellbeing?

It’s designed to provide them with the tools and techniques to improve health and wellbeing across their organisation.
