Workplace innovation – Sustainable work

Belgium
Brussels

The aim of the event is for participants to take away fresh insights and new perspectives on the practical actions required to engage and retain Europe’s ageing workforce and make work more sustainable throughout the life course. Sustainable work means achieving living and working conditions that enable people to engage in and thrive in work throughout their lives. Making work sustainable throughout the life course in this way means understanding both the requirements of work and the needs of individuals as both evolve over time.

Sustainable work, as a concept that champions the improvement of working conditions and the adaptation of work to the needs of people is an end in itself but it is also makes economic sense. By making work more sustainable, it is hoped that:

  • More people can be integrated into the labour market;
  • Workers are able and will wish to remain in the labour market until a later age

This seminar will look at what ingredients need to be considered for sustainable work. It will focus the role of actors and policymakers in making work sustainable. It will underline the importance of work organisation in the workplace, through quality of work and workplace innovation, based on employee involvement in improvement and development of work processes and products.
