The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions among European working age population, as well as the implications reflected in individual and societal level, underline the need for a road map towards inclusion, integration and reintegration of employees in the workplace as well as towards the development of strategies to implement workers’ health.

Relevant stakeholders need to be encouraged to implement this road map on employment and chronic conditions at European and national level.

This, also by implementing the Chrodis Plus Toolbox, developed within the EU Joint Action CHRODIS PLUS, which will be presented at the Policy Dialogue. It includes the Training Tool for managers on workplace inclusion and work ability and the Toolkit for workplace adaptation, health promotion and disease prevention. Chrodis Plus TOOLBOX together with the implementation of the Roadmap will support European Countries to develop a genuine prevention culture among employers and workers regarding chronic diseases and on their management in the workplace.
