Northern growth

Ella Rhodes reports.

An occupational psychologist recently led a roundtable discussion at the first Northern Growth Forum. The event aimed to bring together business leaders to discuss how to improve business and partnerships in the north of the country.

Dr Sheena Johnson (Alliance Manchester Business School), who has expertise in health, stress and the ageing workforce, chaired a discussion on Health and Wellbeing. The event was organised by publishing and events company Prolific North along with Alliance Manchester Business School.

Johnson told Prolific North that health and wellbeing could affect performance and attitudes at work. ‘Businesses and leaders can play a key role in protecting or damaging, the health and wellbeing of individuals. In light of this companies increasingly recognise the value to their business of paying attention to employee health and wellbeing. The Forum will offer businesses and leaders a valuable opportunity to share and discuss the different approaches and challenges of health and wellbeing initiatives.’
