Bringing you practical insights and innovative strategies for improving mental health and wellbeing in the workplace

Auckland | 27 - 28 April 2017

Having a mentally healthy, happy and engaged workforce is good for business. Every year, untreated mental health problems can cost employers up to billions through absenteeism, reduced productivity and compensation claims. With New Zealand’s health and safety laws revised to include coverage of mental health, it is now a necessary imperative for employers to start taking mental wellbeing seriously.
Do you want to find out what the best workplaces in the country are doing to help their people be healthier, fitter and in turn more productive? 
Are you interested to hear directly from programme leaders on what has been effective in helping employees to recognise, manage and respond to situations of mental and emotional distress?
Is it important to you that resources are available to support line and case managers with their work in managing employees experiencing ill health or undergoing rehabilitation? 
The Workplace Health & Wellbeing New Zealand is the second edition of our health and wellbeing series. Building on the success of the 2016 event (see our testimonials page to find out what our past attendees are saying), this year’s programme will provide you with insights into tackling the stigma of mental ill-health and practical how-to tips from successful case studies on how leading organisations have implemented their health and wellbeing programs to great effect. We will take a look at the challenges these organisations faced in their journey, strategies to overcome and the lessons they have learnt in the process. 
This two-day event inclusive of panels, roundtables, networking and live on-site polling is an all-rounded platform giving you the opportunity to benchmark your initiatives, challenge pre-conceptions and enhance your ability to deliver effective change and better outcomes.
As a delegate, you will also get free subscription to the Employment Law Matters online platform featuring exclusive interviews, case studies, law firm articles and the latest industry news on topics including workplace health and safety, workplace relations, industrial relations, employee relations, legislations and rulings, dismissals, and discrimination, amongst many others.
