“Sustainable productivity is more than investing in processes and strategies… it’s about meeting your people’s core needs so they feel confident, comfortable and inspired to work productively, for the long term.”

Emily Perry, Head of Commercial Development, Purple Cubed

If you have an interest in engaging your people and promoting and sustaining productivity, this event is for you.

Following the success of our Reading HR Conference in June, you are invited to join Boyes Turner's Employment Group and its guest speakers to hear how employers can achieve sustainable workforce productivity. We will discuss the factors which influence sustainable productivity and show how HR can help to create workplace cultures and people strategies which energise, engage and focus its people to create a stronger sense of purpose and passion. In particular, we will look at:

  • How we can unite teams to create and develop a long-term positive work culture
  • How we can create a "fairer" workplace
  • The impact sleep has on productivity
  • The impact employees' health and wellness has on sustainable productivity

Speakers announced

  • Gary Impett, Head of Corporate Sales at Vitality Health, who will discuss the UK's largest health and wellness survey: Vitality Health's "Britain's Healthiest Workplace" and the Business Case for Workplace Wellness.
  • Geraldine Joaquim DSFH HPD of Mind Your Business, who will be asking "Why do we need to sleep?". Geraldine will be exploring how organisations can recognise sleep as a foundation for wellbeing and support their employees in getting a good night's sleep - for their better business.
  • Professor Karina Nielsen is the Chair of Work Psychology and the Director of the Institute for Work Psychology at the University of Sheffield. Her key research interests are interventions to improve employee health and wellbeing and how we can support workers thriving at work. She has published widely in internationally recognised journals, presented her research in invited keynotes and won multiple awards. Her research has been funded by national and international funding bodies. Professor Nielsen is also a member of the Productivity Insights Group focusing on workplace and people productivity. Professor Nielsen will present her research and discuss “Returning and thriving at work after long-term absence”.

This discussion-led HR conference is a must for HR VPs and Directors, senior HR professionals, talent and recruitment managers and people leaders of all levels. If you have an interest in engaging your people and promoting and sustaining productivity, this event is for you.
