Employability in the 21st Century

12-13 September 2018 - Provinciehuis Vlaams Brabant, Leuven, Belgium

Due to the economic and political tendency to raise retirement age, people will have to work longer. A policy of keeping people longer at work can only be successful if their employability is maintained in a sustainable way throughout their entire career.

But how can this employability be made sustainable? With the wealth and experience of others.

The second edition of the International Employability21 Congress offers you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the following themes:

  • Employee motivation and commitment
  • Personalized rewards
  • Absenteeism, chronic illness and return to work
  • Physical workload and musculoskeletal disorders,

And many more...

What to expect?

First Edition

The first International Conference on Sustainable Employability was held in September 2016 and aimed to bring together scientists and practitioners within the fields of Occupational Health & Safety and Human Resources.

The successful first edition and the numerous positive reactions of the participants, showed the need for more dialogue between science and practice and encouraged us to organize a second International Conference on Sustainable Employability: “Employability in the 21st Century”.

The conference is an initiative of Securex and is organized in collaboration with the Ghent University, the University of Liège and the Scientific Committee “Aging and work” of the International Commission on Occupational Health (ICOH).
