“The promotion of public health is a complex challenge that must involve many stakeholders. People spend a third of their lives at work and their health and commitment to a healthy lifestyle depend largely on the working conditions they face and the values that are transmitted through corporate culture. The development of corporate programmes for health care and disease prevention is an important part of building a healthy society”, Director of the Research Institute for Healthcare Organization and Medical Management of Moscow Healthcare Department Elena Aksenova said.
Sessions on ‘Corporate health culture at the heart of a healthy society strategy’, ‘Emotional safety’, ‘On-the-job: corporate cancer prevention programs’, and ‘Workplace wellness: a fashion trend or a necessity’ were included in the ‘Occupational health’ and ‘Developing safety culture’ thematic blocks of the event’s main business programme.
