"The Significance of Health in Human Capital Management"

Presented by:


Hosted by:


Employees can be the best-trained, most highly skilled and motivated, best-equipped workers in the world, but if they are not healthy, they will not be fully productive and their employer will suffer competitively. 

Although employers have failed to see health as a critical component of their human capital in the past, a growing number of companies in Europe are developing health and productivity management programs. 

The 4th European Health and Productivity Congress will highlight some of the best practices in the field and present the latest research as well as useful measurement tools to determine program success.
