Allianz announces wellbeing conference

Allianz Insurance is holding a wellbeing conference to discuss what wellbeing encompasses, why it is important and how businesses can tackle it effectively.

The conference, on September 18, will bring together experts from the fields of wellbeing management, behavioural safety, stress management and rehabilitation.

Allianz says the ability of employees to carry out their duties has been increasingly affected by external pressures and general poor health which has encouraged businesses to review what is meant by wellbeing.

Health and safety manager Michelle Juchau says companies now have to consider the whole wellbeing of the employee as part of their fitness to work.

She says: “This broader consideration of fitness to work brings into scope issues such as absenteeism due to illness or injury which are not work-related and individuals who, whilst at work, are not working at their full potential due to ill health of some form.

“Promotion of wellbeing focuses on this wider definition and ensures not only the safety of the employee at work but strives to improve the overall physical and mental health of the individual in order for them to perform at their best.”
