SEPTEMBER 4, 8:00 AM - 11:45 AM AT GRAND HOTELS

The challenge: Less work

Improved health - increased results…

Health Protection, Attentus and the Psychologists

The conference will address human resources managers, managers of organizational units and parties involved in administrative and health aspects of employees.

At the conference, lectures were presented focusing on the effects of long working hours on health, but stress and stress-related illnesses are becoming more common and job cooling is a widespread problem. Organizational managers are therefore increasingly considering their employees' health, seeking solutions to reduce stress and improving employee well-being.

With the introduction of new wage agreements, greater emphasis is placed on flexibility and the shortening of the working week without wage cuts. The standard of living stipulates a 45-minute reduction in working hours per week from 1 January 2020. The implementation of the statute is in the hands of each workplace.

Shortening working hours may reduce the effects of long working hours on employees' health, promote work-life balance, and thereby improve the quality of life.
These are managerial and challenging challenges that call for resourcefulness and management skills.

The tools and devices. What solutions and methods can be used for such an implementation? What do measurements and surveys mean when looking at sick leave, overtime, efficiency and results? What are the positive effects and what are the benefits of mental well-being and job satisfaction?
