Edenred dedicates info session to stress management

In its continuing series of live sessions and debates about best corporate policies and practices, Edenred recently hosted an event focusing on the role of companies in stress management and work-life balance of their employees.
Nov 27, 2015

Around 50 participants representing a variety of companies and organisations were on hand in at a morning info session in Brussels on 22 October to hear more about workplace stress, the state of play and possible involvement of stakeholders to reduce it. The event was the eighth info sharing session on corporate policies and practices to be hosted by Official Campaign Partner Edenred.

Speakers included Dr Francisco Jesús Alvarez Hidalgo, Deputy Head of Unit on Health, Safety and Hygiene at Work, European Commission’s DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, and Stephan Atsou, Director Continental Europe from CrossKnowledge. The event was moderated by Nicolas Vincent.

They discussed tools available at the EU level to encourage national action and to disseminate best practices, including the Healthy Workplaces Campaign. They also talked about ways to fight stress at an organisation by offering some key takeaways and good practices for participants. The message that investment into occupational safety and health, including stress management, is cost-effective for an organisation was also underscored. 

Edenred, a world leader in prepaid corporate services, works to design, develop and manage a range of solutions that are continuously adapted to meet the needs of employers and employees and to improve the quality of life and well-being of employees as well as to enhance their performance at work.

An online summary of the event is available.

A video summary of this session plus others is also available.
