16 June | Cynnal Connect – ‘Health at Work’
A healthy workforce is a sustainable workforce.
This event examines three different approaches to delivering health in the workplace. It is an ideal learning and networking opportunity for professionals working in HR, Health & Safety, NHS, Corporate Responsibility, Occupational Health, Sustainable Development and general public health.
People need to be healthy in order to be active, engaged citizens and employees. Organisations need to ensure the health of their workforce as a core strategic issue. For public organisations, The Well-being of Future Generations Act implies an additional duty. The Act aims to create a prosperous economy in Wales based on care for the environment, individuals and communities.
Health at Work will be an opportunity to consider the importance of health and well-being as an essential aspect of a sustainable, responsible organisation/employer. By extension it will prompt reflection on the importance of personal health as a component of a sustainable society.

Public Health Wales is the public organisation responsible for delivering the Healthy Working Wales programme for the Welsh Government. The fully funded Healthy Working Wales programme supports employers, individuals and a range of health professionals to help working age people in Wales stay fit and healthy so they can remain in employment, or return to work following a period of ill health. Two strands of the programme are Workboost Wales and the Healthy Working Wales workplace health and wellbeing awards.

Our ‘Show & Tell’ events are an opportunity to explore aspects of sustainability in greater depth. They operate on the basis of “three speakers, two hours, one topic.”
Each speaker presents their work/research as a different facet of the whole. Speakers are expected to make their presentations as practical as possible and to provide workshop activities to assist learning and critical reflection.
The audience has ample opportunity to ask questions and discuss the topic as well as network and make new contacts.
The events are informal and designed to share learning and create potential for collaborative projects and ideas.
