In today’s global and competitive economy where talents are scared, attracting, retaining and motivating employees is becoming more challenging. More and more companies are thinking outside the box when it comes to their employer branding.

However, there is one area that has neglected when developing employer branding, that is, health and safety. Having good health and safety culture and practices in a company will translate to a healthy and productive workforce, improve quality of work-life, d better employee engagement and retention, reduced absenteeism and medical costs, and better business performance.

Hence, HR professionals need to equipped themselves with the knowledge and skills to develop and better manage the health and safety program at their workplace.
