Offices with good health and wellbeing are essential to motivate people and increase their energy levels. These are all essential factors that underpin productivity. The statistics on absenteeism, presenteeism and staff retention rates show we can do much better, but to do so we need to be aware of the facts that are relevant to the design and management of offices.

This seminar discusses the medical and other evidence which the industry needs to be aware of. The BCO has put Health and Wellbeing at the core of its research this year and we would like to invite you to the first of many seminars to be organised.

Join us for an enlightening evening and to enjoy drinks and networking with your fellow BCO members and industry peers.
