The Vrije Universiteit Brussel is working on the wellbeing policy of the university for the next five years. By means of this forum on the safety and wellbeing at work, the VUB wants to find ideas and solutions on wellbeing at work in cooperation with its employees.

In the morning, prominent speakers will share their best practices on wellbeing at work. After lunch, we will build on the results of the workshop on sustainable employability of 6 February 2018 and focus on 6 themes in a participatory forum in order to outline our future wellbeing policy.
