Agenda:17.00 – 19.00

Is workplace wellbeing a trend, or the future? We at the Chamber vote FUTURE!
Theresa May said it herself,

“Many employers are already creating healthy, inclusive workplaces, but more needs to be done so
that employers provide the support needed for employees with mental health conditions.” Prime Minister Theresa May, January 2017.

Did you know that the cost of poor mental health to the economy is between £74 billion and £99 billion per year? According to the Thriving at Work Report by Stevenson and Farmer. Which means, well-being does affect business. Therefore, we would like to invite you, and friends to our wellbeing get-together. On the 17th May, we are hosting an exciting morning, featuring networking, knowledge and activities.

During the day you can look forward to talking science of the mind with Alan Dovey, hear the five ways of wellbeing from north Staffs MIND, get moving with an interactive activity from Plum Happy and welcome discussion during our panel session.

We will demonstrate the services available with an exhibition of Staffordshire’s wellbeing suppliers.

Book your places fast, as this is due to be a popular event!
