In major cities across Europe, considerable investment is being made in corporate health & wellbeing as an essential element of achieving competitive advantage and employee-productivity improvement.

As the financial and business capital of the Netherlands (and home to more than 2,700 international-enterprises) the need to support positive health and wellbeing among Amsterdam’s highly-skilled and diverse workforce is of critical importance to the national economy.

The Citywork Amsterdam congress will examine the business case for increased workforce-investment and the productivity benefits this will bring to this multi-employer business community.

Through keynote presentations and themed workshops, Citywork Amsterdam will educate and inform leaders - from across the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area - drawn from HR, Personnel, Talent Management, Benefits, Renumeration, Health & Wellbeing.
