Title: The Business Action on Health Breakfast
Location: Westin Hotel, Dublin
Description: The Business Action on Health initiative was launched by Business in the Community Ireland (BITCI) in February 2011 and supported by the Chief Medical Officer, Dr Tony Holohan, and a Corporate Leaders’ group drawn from leading member companies. The group committed to take action to improve the health of their employees in the workplace and thereby have a positive effect on their business, their employees, employees’ families and society in general.

We will be joined on the morning by Valarie O’ Riordan of Diageo Ireland and Aengus McClean of AOL who will discuss the initiatives that they have implemented in Diageo and AOL aimed at improving the health of their employees. Joan Freeman CEO & Founder of Pieta House, the centre for prevention of self-harm or suicide will also address the group mental health issues in the workplace.

Through a facilitated discussion we will discuss what types of initiatives individual companies can introduce and discuss any issues that may be encountered in implementing changes.
