Flexible work and health, feat. Dr Ginny Sargent

Tue 27 Oct @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Flexible work has become a reality, this year more than ever before. But what does it mean for our health, and that of workers in different forms of employment?

Ginny will give an outline of findings from research conducted in the ACT on:

  • getting the most out of workplace health promotion
  • flexible work, and how it can negatively impact health.

Ginny will then discuss how these learnings can be applied in our workplaces to mitigate negative, and harness positive effects of flexible work on staff and their families.
