Make a Commitment

In November 2016, 100 Commitments were made by public and private sector organisations, government departments, trade unions, trade associations and industry partnerships in support of the Helping Great Britain Work Well campaign.

A full update on those Commitments and announcements of new initiatives will be made this November.

Whilst at the conference you can make your own Commitment (or update a previous pledge) in time for November by:

  • Visiting the Commitments stand in the Experience Zone where you will be able to fill in details on line, or;
  • Recording your Commitment in one of the video booths in the Experience Zone, or;
  • Filling in the paper templates you will find on tables in the conference rooms.

If you have a Commitment to make before the conference, you do this can by downloading and completing the form and returning it to the team via email.

Please share any examples you may have - big or small - with HSE and your contemporaries.

If you want to see the existing commitments, visit the Helping Great Britain work well site.

Join the conversation at #HelpGBWorkWell – share your successes
