Essex Business Podcast: Health in the workplace – The employer’s responsibility?

by Kim Aaronricks

The latest episode of the Essex Business Podcast has now been released, featuring practical tips and specialist advice from sought-after experts and professional advisers across the county, to help companies thrive post-lockdown.

The issue of health, particularly mental health, in the workplace is increasingly a headline-maker. To what degree should employers be held responsible for their employees’ health and wellbeing, other than fundamental health and safety at work issues and how have attitudes to employee health and wellbeing changed?

In this episode of The Essex Business Podcast we talk to Rob Whitaker, Executive Partner and Head of Employment at Tees Law about the legal responsibilities of employers; Anna Trudgian from Open Road gives an overview of what that organisation can do to support both businesses and their staff if someone is experiencing addiction-related problems; and Rickard Luckin Director, Kate Bell talks about the wellbeing initiatives that have been put in place within the firm.

Listen to the episode online at   or find it on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Amazon Music by searching ‘Essex Business Podcast’.

The Essex Business Podcast is devised, developed, and delivered by Essex accountancy firm Rickard Luckin, which has over 150 staff, and offices in Basildon, Chelmsford, and Southend.

Episode 17 will be released later this month, so to make sure you don’t miss it please visit  , or subscribe directly from your usual podcast content provider.
