Posturite at the Health and Wellbeing @ Work 2018 exhibition

We recently exhibited at the Health and Wellbeing @ Work 2018 event at the NEC in Birmingham.

Taking place over two days (6-7 March), Health and Wellbeing @ Work is, as you might expect from the name, all about inspiring employers to improve the health and wellbeing of their staff.

We hired out a stand to showcase some of our newest and most popular products, including:

Our stall offered passersby a good chance to try ergonomic products out first-hand, and ask our experts any questions they might have had about the benefits of going ergonomic.

It was fascinating to walk around the exhibition hall to get a flavour for current industry trends. Stalls offered everything from massage gadgets and relaxtion treatments, to wellbeing services, mental health information and drug/alcohol addiction support.

Everybody we spoke to agreed that health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly important to UK employers as the link with productivity and output becomes clearer.

Peppered about the room were keynote speakers from various organisations offering snippets of advice and research into health and wellbeing.

One talk by Sidekick Health, a 'gamified lifestyle change service', claimed that 60% of us are health illiterate. In other words, we don't know what to do with the data we collect from our wearables, which is why so many people use them for a while and then ultimately get bored. What's important in any workplace health and wellbeing strategy is that data is not only collected, but also used intelligently to personalise ongoing solutions.

The Health and Wellbeing @ Work event was a great chance for us to chat to people about what we're passionate about - which is, ultimately, improving the health, wellbeing and productivity of the nation's workers.
