The “Chronic Diseases and Employment” work package of the CHRODIS PLUS project in collaboration with EU Health Policy Platform invites you to a webinar on “Employment and Chronic Conditions in Europe – Facing the challenge” on 19 September 2019 from 14.00 to 15.00 p.m. (CET).
This webinar will present the answers provided by Chrodis Plus to the European challenge on chronic conditions in the work sector. It provides information about the birth of the CHRODIS PLUS Training Tool, which has been developed to help employers understand the benefits of the workplace inclusion, integration and reintegration of people suffering from chronic diseases. Managers are encouraged to implement the Training Tool to evaluate inclusiveness and work ability of their teams so as to create facilitating environments for reaching desirable organizational outcomes: productivity, job satisfaction of all employees, and organizational commitment. Thus, it gives a general heads up on the importance and impact of these themes in the society of today.
The webinar will demonstrate the importance of informing managers, HR departments and employers regarding the capacities of people with chronic conditions to continue working, return to work, maintenance of work, fighting stigma and inappropriate behaviors when there is disclosure of a chronic condition.
