Episode 1: The Business Conversation with Dr Paula Briggs

As a small business and employer, you know that your business has lots of potential and you’re always working hard to find the next opportunity to improve business performance and profitability. 

The UK Government’s Women’s Health Strategy published in 2022 highlighted the importance of supporting women’s reproductive health in the workplace and the impact it has on productivity, health and wellbeing, staff retention and development. 

By taking steps to look after women’s health in the workplace, you will achieve real benefits for your business and your workforce.  

What is the Women’s Workplace Wellness project? 

We are developing resources and information to support small and medium-sized businesses to implement meaningful changes which will provide valuable results for their organisation.  

We have worked with the SME community since 1996, with a particular focus on the challenges and opportunities faced by women in the workplace. This includes understanding the health and social factors that restrict progression and business growth. We are building on in-depth research in these areas to give you the tools to create a workplace where women can reach their true potential, and business can reach new heights as a result.    

Our team of small business professionals is working closely with clinical and legal experts as well as SME owners to develop easily accessible and relevant resources, that will deliver real progress for the small business community and wider UK economy.
