Health and Productivity in the Workplace

Are healthy workers productive workers? And if so, why do companies still struggle to put health and well-being at the centre of good business performance? And how can this be changed?

In this episode, host Bart van Ark is joined by Sir Cary Cooper, Professor of Organisational Psychology and Health at Alliance Manchester Business School. He’s a world leading expert on workers’ health and well-being and also President of the Chartered Institute of Personal Development in the UK.

They discuss the impact of the Covid pandemic on health and productivity, the challenges of new ways of working and why the health and well-being of a workforce should be a more central business imperative.
