Occupational Health

February 27 - 28, 2019


  Why should we even talk about occupational health?
  The economic burden of mental illnesses in Pakistan was PKR 250,483 million in 20161. Medical care costs and productivity losses contributed 37% and 58.97% of the economic burden respectively.
  Furthermore, one in three Pakistani struggle with anxiety and depressive disorders and suicide rates have increased, with an estimated 13,377 suicides in 2012.
  Despite these shocking numbers mental (occupational?) health is still a taboo topic many people don’t want to talk about. Why?
  This interactive 2 day workshop will help managers to learn how to spot the signs of a well-being imbalance in their subordinates and more importantly, what to do about it.
