Councillor Martin Towler, Portfolio Holder for Health, Public Health and Wellbeing, passionately emphasises,
“We firmly believe that every business, regardless of its size or sector, should prioritise the health and wellbeing of its workforce. The Healthy Workplace Standards serve as a framework to enhance practices and foster an environment where employees can truly flourish. Happy and healthy individuals are more productive, take fewer sick days, and significantly contribute to the overall success of their organisations.”
Investing in the health and wellbeing of employees reaps long-term rewards, including increased recruitment, enhanced productivity, and improved staff retention. At the Workplace Health and Wellbeing event, employers will have the unique opportunity to connect with a diverse range of Health and Wellbeing service providers who are wholly dedicated to supporting workplace health. The event will feature insightful presentations on inclusive employment, providing attendees with valuable knowledge and networking opportunities.
Moreover, this event serves as an exclusive gateway for employers to explore the Healthy Workplace Awards. These awards, designed for small, medium, and large organisations, play a pivotal role in cultivating a positive working environment, boosting morale, improving motivation, and driving growth.

The Workplace Health and Wellbeing event primarily targets employers, HR leads, Health and Wellbeing leads, and managers based in Bedford Borough, Central Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes. Attendees will gain valuable insights into the benefits of implementing the Healthy Workplace Standards, as well as the opportunity to interact with industry experts and learn from their experiences.
