Diabetes is a hidden epidemic, leaving all companies exposed to increased absenteeism, increased risk of accidents and rapidly increasing risk of legal liability.

With over 700 new diagnoses of type 2 diabetes per day and an estimated 1.1 million people in the UK still undiagnosed, diabetes is a critical issue facing every employer over the next few years.

All companies now must face the question; What are we doing to protect our staff and our organisation from the impact of the inexorable rise in diabetes cases.

The Diabetes in the Workplace Conference explores how best to keep your staff in work, productive and safe from the risks of diabetes whilst at the same time mitigating the legal risks to your organisation.
