“We want people to live the fullest possible lives, with the means to do so - whether before or during retirement. It means that we must do more to enable longer working lives than previously expected. That is why the notion of workplaces that promote health, support employees who are not wholly fit, and encourage early and appropriate intervention to restore fitness in the wake of illness and injury is central to answering today's needs. There is also now convincing evidence that success in achieving these aims depends greatly on fostering employee engagement in the pursuit of wellbeing. Effective Management and self-management of employee health, especially in relation to common mental health problems and long term physical conditions, rests very much on the trust and commitment that characterise real engagement. I urge colleagues whose responsibilities and actions have a part in influencing workplace health, and strengthening manager-employee engagement, to attend and contribute to this established annual conference.”
Professor Dame Carol Black
