Firms keen to improve the health of their workforce can learn more at an event organised by Norfolk County Council.

Stress, depression and anxiety, and physical conditions such as back pain are among the biggest causes of absence from work.

The session on February 2 aims to cut the number of working days lost, improve productivity and boost staff retention rates.

Speakers include Doug Field, the chairman of New Anglia LEP, and representatives from Public Health England and Business in the Community.

Dr Louise Smith, the council's director of public health, said: 'To be the best they can, businesses need to see health and wellbeing as an essential part of their workplace provision.'

The Work and Health Event is being held at The King's Centre in Norwich, and includes lunch and networking opportunities. Book at www.norfolk.gov.uk/workandhealthevent
