Jane Abraham works for The Inclusivity Project as policy adviser, drawing on her work with DWP, as well as Flourish – her own workplace wellness consultancy. She explains why workplace inclusivity is high priority for government:
As the population ages, policy makers recognise the benefits of keeping everybody of working age productive, well, and in work. This supports the economy, reduces health inequalities, and improves quality of life for all. ‘Good work’ benefits everyone but we know work can have both positive and negative effects on health and wellbeing.
