An old adage informs us that prevention is better than cure. These are wise words indeed. And such sentiments obviously apply within a wide variety of contexts, with working environments being no exception. Recent decades have witnessed growing importance attached to health in the workplace. Given the prevailing compensation culture in many societies, this development is not surprising. Firms naturally want to protect themselves as much as possible from the threat of health-related lawsuits. Complying with necessary regulations and safeguarding the welfare of employees should thus be high on the agenda. It clearly makes sense for organizations to adopt a proactive approach to these matters.
The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.
The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent, information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
