Creating a Global Agenda for Workplace Health in 2021
This has been a year to remember like none other and the wretched covid-19 pandemic is on course to continue upsetting work patterns for the foreseeable future. If there has been a silver lining in an otherwise depressing period it is the recognition of the vital role workplace health plays in delivering sustainable economic performance. Further, there has been the understanding that no single country has all the answers; a multi-sector, global response is needed, if we are to progress.
We concluded a difficult year with a successful virtual Summit and an enlightening roundtable of the Global Alliance. The core message to emerge from these was the need for us to champion the cause of putting wellbeing at the heart of economic and societal recovery. We aim to do this by raising awareness of the WHO framework for Healthy Workplaces, sharing best practice between employing organisations and undertaking new research initiatives. We hope you will continue to share your ideas, insights and experience in 2021.
Thank you for your support.
