Women's Health at Work: Breaking the Silence

Women’s Health at Work: Breaking the Silence

On Tuesday 18th October at 12pm BST, Hanson Search will host a panel event to discuss Women’s Health in the Workplace.

For many years, health concerns specific to women have been overlooked by employers. However as attracting and retaining female talent becomes a priority for employers, it’s time for companies to understand and support key issues that affect women at work.

In this webinar, chaired by Amy Hayer, Global Head of Healthcare Communications at Hanson Search, our panel of experts will discuss the challenges women face within the workforce, the government’s developing Women’s Health Strategy and how companies can support women in the workplace.
