Joining us as our guest speaker in March 2019, we are delighted to confirm Dr Judith Grant, Director of Health and Wellbeing at Mace Group.

GUEST SPEAKER PROFILE

As Director for Health and Wellbeing at MACE, Dr Judith Grant is responsible for the strategic delivery of Occupational Health, Occupational Hygiene and Wellbeing for the global workforce. Her focus is on managing health risk to the business as well as creating wellbeing opportunities. 

Improving physical and mental health and wellbeing across the workforce & supply chain

Seeing people struggle to prioritise health and wellbeing in their busy working lives, Judith studied for a Master’s degree in Workplace Health and Wellbeing, and a PhD in Occupational Health Psychology and Management, to gain greater understanding of corporate health issues and the solutions available in new and cutting edge research to combat them.

Her PhD studies focused on socioeconomic and sociodemographic factors and their influence over eating behaviours and work. The research demonstrates significant socioeconomic disparities in health behaviours which presents implications for workplaces in supporting healthy choices and behaviours in the workplace. Workplaces have a major role to play in addressing health inequalities.

Now working for Mace Group, a global construction, consultancy and FM business, Judith has the opportunity to work with a diverse workforce implementing occupational health, hygiene and wellbeing solutions to improve both physical and mental health and wellbeing across the organisation and supply chain.

Judith will demonstrate from her experience how the workplace has a unique opportunity to encourage healthy behaviours and provide support for all employees. For those leading or support workplace initiatives, she will discuss how important it is to consider how accessible, inclusive and engaging the programmes we implement are, in order that they do not further the disparities in health, but give all employees equal opportunity to access support if employees want it.

Judith is also the trustee of two charities: the Mace Foundation and Men’s Health Forum and current Chair of Women in Health and Safety.
