This programme focuses on health and well-being throughout employees' careers. It covers positive aspects of work (e.g.: engagement) and the prevention of negative aspects of work (e.g.: burnout).
Governments and companies need employees to remain healthy and productive throughout their working lives. So how do we make it happen? 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. 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? In this programme, you learn what you can do to foster and promote all these things. You focus in a very practical sense on an organisational or company setting, making policies and recommendations for the health, well-being and productivity of individual employees, and for the company as a whole. You also learn to develop your analytical skills. Your solutions are not just behavioural, but also organisational, technical. Thus, you gain a multidisciplinary education with a theoretical and practical focus.
