Becoming an employer of choice in the Middle East: Focus on health and wellness
The Middle East has a high rate of stress related illnesses, diabetes and hyper tension and one in four deaths in the region is attributed to heart attacks (Middle East Insurance Review) *. As people spend most of their time at work, it is important for employers to address issues that affect employee wellness and encourage preventative measures.
Tailored for HR practitioners, the HR Stream will help you improve your wellness programs through interactive dialogue, sharing of ideas and best practice.
