PERSONNEL TODAY invites you to their event

CPD: Understanding occupational health career pathways

About this event

Since the onset of Covid-19, employers have become increasingly aware of the need for, and value of, occupational health support and expertise.

Not only is good health and wellbeing at work of paramount importance to society, helping employees remain mentally and physically well is key to improving staff retention and performance.

The occupational health workforce is central to the good health of working-age people, organisations and the economy, and there is currently huge demand for practitioners at all levels.

How, however, as a potential or current occupational health practitioner do you choose the right career pathway for you? And how can employers or HR professionals select and develop the right practitioner for their organisation? 

This webinar, presented by Janet O’Neill of iOH and PAM Group and chaired by Professor Anne Harriss, will discuss:

  • the career pathways available to OH professionals, from both a clinical and an employer perspective
  • how health professionals from other specialties can move into the world of OH
  • the core backgrounds, transferable skills, development and educational needs of occupational health professionals
  • the opportunities for both occupational health practitioners and the HR professionals and employers engaging them
  • what employers and HR professionals should consider when employing and/or developing OH practitioners.

Those who attend the live webinar will have an opportunity to ask questions after Janet’ presentation.

Please note: Only people who watch the live event will receive confirmation of their attendance.
