Implementing a Health & Wellbeing Strategy (Room Location: GREEN HALL)
Creating a true culture of health in your organisation can help drive greater employee engagement and wellbeing. But building this healthy culture requires a successful employee wellbeing strategy. The Virgin Pulse workshop will explore our best practices in implementing a health & wellbeing strategy, as well as techniques to overcome the main challenges our clients have faced.
Mental Health Promotion (Room Location: PURPLE HALL)
Mental Health & Wellbeing is perhaps the number one issue impacting upon employee happiness and productivity. What steps can be taken to promote mental wellbeing in the workplace and how can you help employees deal with issues that may arise? This session aims to provide an insight into positive steps you can take within your organisation.
Resolving Workplace Conflict (Room Location: RED HALL)
Conflict within the workplace can have a catastrophic effect upon morale, productivity, absenteeism and the expensive business of staff turnover. This session examines how procedures and mediation can resolve conflict in a timely manner to avoid the damage it creates.

WORKSHOPS SESSIONS 2 AND ROOM LOCATIONS
Utilising Mindfulness for High Calibre Team Performance. (Room Location: PURPLE HALL)
The creation of productive, energised and engaged teams is central to an effective and motivated business. Mindfulness, when integrated into the teambuilding process, can truly enable this. How this can be achieved is examined in this workshop.
Smoking is still seriously impacting your business performance! (Room Location: RED HALL)
Smoking is having a serious and expensive impact upon your business. Not simply in extra time required by smokers to feed their habit. You may have a non-smoking campus but smokers will still need to exit the area to smoke. Older employees will begin to suffer the morbidities created by smoking and this will impact absenteeism and productivity. Demonstrably effective methods can be employed to help the smokers on your staff and there is a clear business case for this which will be demonstrated at this session.
The Role of Recognition in delivering First Class Customer Service.(Room Location: GOLD HALL)
The key to a successful business is excellent customer service and the key to that is recognition for the individuals in the customer facing areas of your business. How does this recognition impact upon moral, absenteeism and recruitment and what methods can be employed to ensure first class customer service and motivated, engaged employees?
MASTERCLASS SESSIONS AND ROOM LOCATIONS
Understanding How to Deliver High Quality Health to your Employees. (Room Location: GOLD HALL)
The ‘Gold Standard’ benefit you can give to employees is comprehensive health insurance for themselves and their families with immediate access to high quality treatment. Purchasing such a benefit is not such an easy task. What should this benefit look like, what are the key areas of cover and what looks good but should be avoided? These points will be explored for you by a major private hospital who are fully aware of just how effective a health insurance policy is.
