Dangerous Waters: Strategies for Improving Wellbeing at Work
This book is a guide through "dangerous waters". It is written to help you understand the real commercial benefits of improving employee wellbeing and how, if this area is neglected it can, despite all the information systems, all the forecasting skills and all the business acumen, sink the organisation. In addition, the authors assert that it is companies who recognise and proactively manage these very real threats in order to improve employee health and wellbeing, who will unleash the enormous potential for increased productivity, profitability and creativity that lies within each one of their employees. Dangerous Waters provides:
* A practical guide for managers in gaining an understanding the extent and true cost of current employee ill health
* Clear guidelines on building towards a strategy for corporate health and therefore corporate wealth improvement
* An integrated approach to the management of attendance, quality, innovation and customer service
No manager, be they Chief Executive, Human Resources, Senior or Line can afford to miss the message of this book.
