Drawing on findings from expert interviews and local workshops in four venues across the country, this report identifies concrete actions various parties can take in promoting work as a health outcome. It aims to help actors at the local level translate national-level policy objectives to encourage those with health conditions back to work, and enable others to remain employed when health problems arise. The report includes recommendations to this end for employers, those working to strengthen employers’ role in health promotion, health services, Health and Wellbeing Boards, public health directors and local authorities.
