WEBINAR: How to Relieve Work Stress during the Corona Crisis

The corona crisis has forced 37% of workers in the EU to work from home, with Finland reaching 60%. Organizations quickly formulated new rules, at best supplemented with ergonomic and lifestyle advice.

In this webinar, professor Angelique de Rijk presents knowledge on the worsening of our psychosocial working conditions, and how you can improve these for yourself and – if you are a manager – your staff members. She will address the issue of effective leadership when working remotely, which is key to psychosocial working conditions.
