Horizonworks partners with wellbeing consultancy
Staff wellbeing will be the focus of a pioneering free event this month, to be held at the Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Headquarters in Washington.
The inaugural Wellbeing at Work Forum on April 19, will be delivered by workplace wellbeing, performance and engagement consultancy Wellbeing Works/Drummond HR, in conjunction with Horizonworks.
Held in partnership with South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue, the forum will provide a platform for discussion around the challenges and actions in relation to staff wellbeing in a time of rapid change.
Newcastle-based DrummondHR/Wellbeing Works has been working alongside South Tyneside NHS Foundation Trust and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service to evaluate staff wellbeing. The event, which will draw on this experience, will examine the challenge for engagement, productivity and job satisfaction; how the challenge can be measured, and look at practical, innovative approaches to changing the work environment.
Horizonworks is responsible for the promotion and organisation of the forum, and is undertaking activities including PR, digital marketing and event management to support Wellbeing Works/Drummond HR.
According to a the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) Absence Management Report 2015, just eight per cent of organisations had a stand-alone wellbeing strategy which was directly linked to productivity, performance and attendance.
Samantha Davidson managing director of Horizonworks, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Wellbeing Works/Drummond HR on this event, and to be applying our full service marketing capabilities to help raise awareness of the importance of wellbeing, and its benefits to staff and employers.
“Wellbeing Works/Drummond HR is a leader in its field and a company which is helping to bring about positive change in both public and private sector organisations in the North East.”

“By investing in employee wellbeing you can create a workforce that performs well, is engaged and therefore improve your organisation’s reputation, financial performance and reduce staff turnover.
“The forum will be of real benefit to senior leaders and managers and directors from across the public and private sectors in the region, and provide valuable practical insight and guidance on how staff wellbeing can improve productivity, performance, engagement and attendance.”
