Given the amount of time people spend at work each week it can have a significant influence on their overall health and well-being. The pace of change within services has escalated considerably (as a result of new policies directions, the commencement of the HIQA registration and inspection process, etc.) and staff well-being has become an increasingly relevant and necessary consideration for employers. The role of management in promoting well-being is increasingly recognised and the fostering and protection of staff well-being needs to be embedded in management methods and systems. A manager can greatly influence the immediate working environment for staff – so whether you're a CEO, HR Manager, Senior Manager, Front Line Manager you need tools and resources to foster a positive work environment and to promote the health and well-being of those you support and your colleagues.
Workplace health and well-being initiatives focus on supporting employee’s to reach and maintain their full potential in the workplace through the promotion of their mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Resilient employees are an essential element of a resilient organisation and enhancing employee’s health and well-being is crucial to organisational success and directly contributes to the provision of quality services.
This 1-day conference will provide an opportunity for those working in the disability / social care sector to network, share information and hear from a range of experts on the following themes:

Meet with a range of experts on the theme of employee health and well-being and identify ways of promoting employee’s health and well-being.
