Operating in a highly competitive business environment and with increasing pressure on the labour market, many employers in Europe are becoming aware that they need to implement measures to improve productivity and efficiency while at the same time enhancing the working environment and company culture. 

Workplace health promotion has been shown to play a major role in achieving these outcomes. The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) promotes good practice in workplace health promotion and advocates the adoption of such practice in all European workplaces. 

The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion and its initiatives have received funding from the European Union in the framework of the Health Programme (2008-2013).

Healthy workplaces manage stress!

On Monday, 7 April 2014, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) launched a two-year European campaign: "Healthy Workplaces Manage Stress (2014-2015)". The prevalence of work-related stress in Europe is startling. EU-OSHA's latest pan-European opinion poll revealed that 51 % of workers find work-related stress to be common in their workplace and 4 in 10 workers think that stress is not handled well in their organisation. However, together employers and workers can successfully manage and prevent work-related stress and psychosocial risks; the Healthy Workplaces Campaign aims to help companies do just that.

The European Network for Workplace Health Promotion (ENWHP) has joined the new EU-OSHA campaign as official campaign partner, because as a network we believe that the mental health and well-being of the employees is crucial to the success of an organisation. The 8th ENWHP initiative "Work. In tune with life. Move Europe" focused on mental health (promotion) at the workplace and developed tools for employers and employees.
