Mental health and wellbeing in the workplace - office, home and flexible working, women’s health, employer strategies and implementation, and policy priorities

Morning, Monday, 19th September 2022

This conference will examine priorities for supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.

Stakeholders and policymakers will discuss key issues moving forward, with the Government consulting on a new 10-year mental health and wellbeing plan for England.

The conference will also be a timely opportunity to examine the future for flexible working following Government’s consultation on making it the default from day one of employment. We expect discussion on issues for organisations and their staff, what is needed to support employees working from home, and the impact of flexible working on work satisfaction and productivity.

Sessions in the agenda include:

  • mental health and wellbeing at work - evidence - key issues - developing strategies for improvement - priorities going forward
  • workplace provision - tackling stress and burnout at all levels - reducing stigma - encouraging open conversations - employee rights - the role of leadership in creating healthy working conditions
  • flexible working - support for employees working from home - tackling isolation - person-centred strategies - setting optimal home-workplace balances for individuals and organisations
  • women’s wellbeing - whole-life support for reproductive health - assistance with outside-work pressures and commitments - implementing specific women’s health strategies
  • implementation - best practice - the impact of employee benefits and care on positive mental health and productivity
  • policy priorities - next steps for mental health and wellbeing in the workplace


We are pleased to be able to include a keynote address from Peter Kelly, Senior Psychologist, Health and Safety Executive.

The conference will be an opportunity for stakeholders to consider the issues alongside key policy officials who are due to attend from the DWP; Home Office; and HMRC.
