Delegates can choose to attend one workshop from each of the three time slots – in this series of 40-minute Symposiums/Workshops, dealing with critical aspects of Employee Health, Wellbeing and Productivity, which will be held during the day, at:

A1: Healthy Office: the secret weapon for a strong employer brand (Presented by CBRE)

Companies are in a constant battle to recruit and keep talented individuals. How do you outsmart your competition and leave them biting the dust in this war for talent? Of course, HR programs, management methods and the workload are key ingredients in this battle. Believing the working environment should also be at the heart of this heated struggle, CBRE joined forces with the University of Twente for a unique study on employee health. This multidisciplinary research focused on the effects of the working environment on employee potential. The outcome exceeded all expectations. Participants in the study said they were not only happier, more energetic and healthier, but they were also more productive. But what do we mean by a Healthy Office? And how can this be the secret weapon for a strong employer brand.

A2: E-health stress-prevention: measuring, monitoring & coaching by smartphone & servicing (Presented by Fitvitaal)

The science of stress and its impact on human performance has enormously evolved in the last decade. By combining the knowledge of the fields of neurophysiology, psychology and exercise physiology we were able to validate a stress-score for white collar workers. The effect of stress on different physiological systems is explained and the possibilities to measure relevant changes. The StressCoach App incorporates this knowledge and provides a validated and personalised value for stress.

Dr Victor Kallen - Senior Scientist: TNO

A3: Corporate health care: how to establish an effective provider network (Presented by CZ)

There are numerous providers in the work-related healthcare market, but in practice, many organisations fail to put serious thought into choosing a provider. The choice is often made only when an employee actually falls ill. However, it’s worth taking a more conscious approach to choosing a provider- often at an earlier stage- and activating a different kind of healthcare. CZ will outline both at employer and employee level when certain choices are available, and explain which kind of healthcare is most effective at each stage. This will ensure you have the right healthcare provider at the right moment, ultimately getting the best care for your employees. And with a number of objective criteria, you can get started yourself!

A4: The business travel employee-experience: How can HR turn it from negative to positive? (Presented by Airbnb) People travel more than ever for work, and while doing so they sacrifice their personal lives affecting both retention, recruiting and motivation. There is plenty of technology to make things easier, and yet many travelers are dissatisfied with the status quo. Since Airbnb entered the business travel space in 2014 we have done qualitative and quantitative research on the modern business traveler which we will present in this session where you will learn: What do they really want; How can you provide it to them: Can you do so without any budget (Hint: the answer is yes). Ultimately, you will leave with some concrete ideas of how you can greatly improve traveler satisfaction, engagement and wellbeing. Business travel can be transformative, there is no reason why it should not be.

B4: HR-use of workplace gamification to improve employee behaviour and happiness (Presented by AtHand)

How can professional development and wellbeing be combined with accountability? And how does ‘play’ fit in this surprising liaison? The answer: Gamification! Continuous learning is an obvious demand in an ever faster changing business environment. Agile, blended, adaptive and personalized learning journeys have become mandatory. But how can we make these more business focussed, relevant and fun at the same time? In this workshop, we will share surprising insights and learnings of gamified learning and development projects for clients like Ahold, PwC, Vodafone-Ziggo and Essent.

C3: Active Light - Connecting with nature (Presented by Zumtobel)

Wellbeing in office spaces is enhanced by holistic lighting ecosystems. Active Light is linked to daylight dynamics, actively supporting the natural biorhythm and ensuring maximum visual comfort for tasks. These lighting solutions bring people together to promote creativity. Wellbeing is one of the ingredients important in building future proof offices. But we need also to think about the total cost of ownership of an office building and see how the lighting solutions can influence them.
