Matching individuals to jobs, balancing work and family lives, maintaining our functional capacities over the years… There is a real need – and a job market – for experts on contemporary problems like these.
Why this programme?
This programme focuses on health and wellbeing throughout employees’ entire careers. You look at positivehealth – wellbeing, engagement and productivity – and at preventing problems – burnout, health complaints, sickness absence, non-participation, the burden of extended working lives. How can we ensure that people enjoy their work? That they are challenged, but not over-burdened? That they can develop both personally and professionally? That the workplace is a positive environment, also for people with a handicap? In the Work, Health and Career programme, you learn what you can do to promote all these things. The programme consists of six courses followed by your thesis research.
Reputable companies need experts who can formulate and implement policies on employee health and productivity. You could look for work in: large companies and institutions that employ their own workplace health experts, consultancies and other agencies specialising in human resources, employee health or occupational health and safety, regional health services (GGDs), employers’ organisations, government institutions from local to federal level, research institutions.verbergen
