UK National Work-Stress Network Annual Conference 2015
Saturday November 28th to Sunday November 29th 2015 at the Hillscourt Conference, Centre, Rednal, Birmingham B45 8RS
This year's theme: "Workplace stress - What cost?"

9 in 10 workers admitted having clocked on despite knowing they were too ill or injured to the do the job properly.
