relations minister Gerry Sutcliffe said: "Good organisations already
recognise the importance of investing in
and many are reaping the rewards. A happy workforce means lower turnover,
reduced sickness rates and higher productivity. But too often these experiences
are not shared, and that means wasted opportunities.

workplaces, but also between them, pulling together the public and private
sectors, employers and employees. I look forward to seeing the project launched
and rolled out."
