The Wellbeing in Construction Summit was launched in 2018 to support the industry's much needed awareness to the health and wellbeing of its construction workforce, to move away from the stereotype of the macho construction workers and to recognise that mental health is just as important as health and safety within this sector. The construction industry has the highest suicide rate over any other profession, with the national statistics showing a shocking 1,419 suicides which took place between 2011 and 2015.
This one day thought-provoking conference provides a platform for business leaders, HR and wellbeing professionals to come together to learn, network and share the necessary strategies on tackling suicide prevention and ways to improve physical wellbeing, personal and mental ill-health within the workplace and amongst their construction employees.
'Employees are the most important asset of every company'
The summit will highlight the importance of investing in your employee’s wellbeing and the benefits in doing so. Discover first-hand techniques on how to implement the right strategies in order to reduce mental ill-health, staff absence, turnover and management intervention, boost productivity, morale and retention and increase profits and the effectiveness of your business.
Value your workforce and join other like-minded construction organisations at the 2019 summit. Learn from the industry’s leading speakers who will share their knowledge and experiences through a variety of seminars, best practice case studies and the opportunity to participate in live wellbeing experiences. Leave with a clear understanding of the key business benefits (financial and people) and the right knowledge required to implement and strengthen a wellbeing strategy right away into your own infrastructure.
