Healthy, safe and productive working
If the Netherlands wants to stay competitive in the global economy, a good workforce is essential. How can we ensure that people can work in a healthy, safe and productive way? How can we promote sustainable employability as the population ages, people have to continue working for longer and disruptive technologies demand new skills? At TNO we work on such questions.
Luuk Engbers, Business Developer for Work, Health & Technology: “Safety, vitality and expertise are at the heart of employability and productivity; they make organisations ready for the future.”
