What do people say?

"Managers will learn what health and wellbeing at work is, and why it makes good business sense… The course clearly articulates the roles and responsibilities for everyone involved and how to resource a health and wellbeing function effectively" - Christina Butterworth, Chair for the Faculty of Occupational Health Nursing Development Group and an Honorary Fellow of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine


“I think it makes good sense for good businesses to actually focus the health, the well-being of their employees, because when they do that, they get much more out of their employees” - Tony Bickerstaff, Costain's Chief Financial Officer - Watch the full interview

“Mental health and stress are far more openly discussed and rather than being perceived as a sign of weakness, they are seen as part of everyday life” - Fee Nunn, Group head of health, safety and facilities at Selwood
