ENWHP partner in the H-WORK project on promoting mental health in SMEs and public sector
ENWHP is one of the fourteen partners involved in the H-WORK project coordinated by Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna (Italy). This project, that has received funding from European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and innovation program, has the purpose of promoting effective interventions on mental health at work by designing, implementing and validating multilevel assessment and intervention toolkits, evaluating individual and organizational outcomes of the adopted measures and providing further innovative products and services. The Kick of Meeting took place in Bologna on 16th and 17th January in the presence of 45 representatives of the different partners. It was a great opportunity to meet, work on team building, collect ideas and plan future work.
Be attentive to @ENWHP twitter account and Newsletter, we will come soon with more information.
New EU Worklife balance Directive in force today
The Council adopted in June a Directive on work-life balance for parents and carers which aims to increase the participation of women in the labour market and the take-up of family-related leave and flexible working arrangements. This Directive is in force since 2 August 2019 and EU Member states shall bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with it by 2 August 2022. This Directive also repeals the Council Directive 2010/18/EU with effect of 2 August 2022.
All organisations or persons, being personally or professionally interested or involved in the field of health at work, can become a member of ENWHP.
Since 1996 ENWHP has addressed the objectives of the Ottawa Charter and has been at the leading edge of the developments in European workplace health promotion. By means of various joint initiatives, it developed good practice criteria and established infrastructures for WHP in the Member States. Through these national forums, ENWHP facilitates the cross - border exchange of information and the dissemination of good workplace health practice in Europe.
