Since 2016, the Workplace Wellbeing group has held an annual conference for the Island’s organisations to attend. The group also supports regular networking sessions hosted by Island organisations on a topic of their choice.

These events promote a key objective of the Programme for Government’s ‘Healthy and Safe Island’ theme – focusing on the prevention of issues by encouraging people to take greater responsibility for their own health and make good lifestyle choices.
