The Third Wellbeing at Work conference in Copenhagen 2014: Promoting healthy and sustainable work-lives
Wellbeing at Work is an increasingly salient topic on the scientific and political agendas in many Western countries. In the scientific world the concept of wellbeing at work is typically addressed from the vantage point of organizational psychology, but to meet the challenges of ageing working populations that increasingly may be characterized by chronic diseases or disabilities, the inquiry into the concept of wellbeing at work needs to widen its scope.
Bring together state of the art knowledge from different scientific fields
The Third conference about Wellbeing at Work will be held in Copenhagen, from 26th to 28th May 2014 and are arranged by The National Research Center for the Working Environment, NRCWE. The conference aims to bring together state of the art knowledge from psychology, epidemiology, physiology, and occupational and social medicine to articulate a coherent research agenda on wellbeing at work that is able to capture the challenges at the labor market facing many Western countries. Earlier conferences have been held in Manchester (2012) and in Helsinki (2010).
