Dame Carol Black will be speaking at a summit in London that will aim to recognise the world's healthiest workplaces.
Cigna will be hosting the Global Healthy Workplace Awards and Summit on the 10 to 12 April and is encouraging both large and SME employers to apply.
Day one of the event will aim to recognise innovative programmes and practices used by employers to impact on the health and well-being of employees.
The second day of the summit will be a schedule of presentations, including a speech from Dame Carol Black, joint chair of the Sickness Absence Review and national director for health and work.
Dave Guilmette, president of Cigna's Global Employer Segment, said: "Communities and workplaces around the world are facing rising chronic disease and escalating healthcare costs.
"The event will bring together global experts to recognise best practices that will make workplaces more productive and competitive and in doing so, improve the state of global health."
Cigna stated that successful workplace programmes were an integral part of addressing growing worldwide epidemics of diabetes, hypertension, smoking, poor diet and lack of exercise.
