Lessons Learned and Development of Research Agenda

Convenors: All 5 Investigators;

Location: Church House, Dean’s Yard, Westminster, London, SW1P 3NZ

Date: 29th June, 2017, 10.15am to 4pm


This final seminar will involve presentations and debates in the first half followed by discussion in small groups to develop ideas for future research. It will draw together the findings from the seminar series (with opening address by Dame Carol Black) and explore the extent to which Big Data on digital working practices can indicate employee wellbeing, how it complements and extends beyond other indicators of organisational health, how it might help to extend knowledge on health and wellbeing and how it might be used to inform interventions to prevent ill-health. Delegates will include policy makers, organisational representatives and academics. We will invite delegates at this final seminar to be part of a steering group to take the ideas forward and shape future research. We will share the findings of the seminar series with the wider network via our website.
