Wellbeing works

Safiya Waley

The University of East Anglia is delighted to host the inaugural one-day conference on Work, Learning and Wellbeing in January. The event will look at what government, business, communities and individuals can do to improve wellbeing.

Improving wellbeing is increasingly seen as an alternative to increasing gross national product as a measure of a nation’s progress goal, and this event provides the opportunity to hear from leading policy makers, senior practitioners and academic experts to learn about new areas of research, and discuss how to identify and implement good practice.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Kim Burton OBE, PhD, Hon FFOM, Director Spine Research UK
  • Dr Paul Litchfield OBE OStJ FRCP FFOM, Chief Medical Officer and Director Health, Safety and Wellbeing BT Group plc and Chair of the What Works Centre for Wellbeing
  • Mark O’Hagan MA FCIPD, Joint Chief Executive East of England Co-op
  • Peter Kelly, Health and Safety Executive and Practitioner Chair of the European Academy of Occupational Health Psychology.

The conference takes place on Thursday 12 January 2017 from 10am-5pm at the Thomas Paine Study Centre, UEA. Tickets are £30. More  information and bookings here
