Over 150 employers, policy makers and people working in public health visited the University of Northampton on 15th September for a one day conference, hosted by PHAST and the IoHW. The event highlighted the work that organisations across the county are undertaking in order to make the working-age population of Northamptonshire more resilient, happier and healthier.
The conference showcased the Healthy Workplace programme, a collaboration between the NHS, Northamptonshire County Council, the University, private companies and third sector charities aiming to improve workers’ health and wellbeing throughout Northamptonshire. The programme hopes to lower staff turnover, reduce sickness absence and boost morale across the county’s workforce.
The delegates enjoyed keynote lectures from Duncan Selbie, Chief Executive, Public Heath England and Dame Carol Black, Senior Policy Advisor, Work and Health, HM Government, as well as 25 unique sessions.
