Employee Wellbeing for SMEs - The Untapped Potential of Your Workforce

17th April 2018

How can I improve productivity and therefore the profitability of my business? Is it possible to reduce absence and increase performance? Poor productivity is seen as one of the biggest challenges facing the UK, with productivity currently at its lowest for over 20 years and falling behind many of our European counterparts.

Staff absence and presenteeism (working whilst ill) impacts a business' productivity, income and performance. This negative impact can be felt harder in SMEs, as a smaller workforce magnifies the impact of poor performance or an unexpected absence on remaining staff. This event, run by the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre at SHU, will provide insight into what wellbeing actually means and why improving employee wellbeing can help your business to flourish. In addition, during lunch you will be given the opportunity to share examples of good practice with likeminded colleagues and discuss current wellbeing challenges and how you can overcome barriers to their implementation within your business. We will also explore the tools you need to ensure that your programme is both efficient and effective, by highlighting the importance of conducting an appropriate needs analysis and evaluation of your current practices. Book your place at the lunch online here.
