Healthy Workplace

We are very proud to introduce our new minor Healthy Workplace. As of September 2019 you can participate in this international five-month program built around a challenging practice-based project.

Worldwide, organizations are starting to take the health and wellbeing of their knowledge workers seriously. This is increasingly important for optimizing productivity, sustaining employability, and attracting and retaining talent. With regard to physical activity, relaxation, nutrition and indoor climate, both problems and solutions can be found within the daily workplace. An innovative, interdisciplinary approach is needed to create the healthy workplace of the future.

Participate in a challenging practice-based project

The Minor Healthy Workplace brings students from different educational backgrounds and countries together. Real Estate Management, Human Resources Management, and Facilities Management are fundamental disciplines, but the minor is open for students following other relevant courses as well. The international five-month program is built around a challenging practice-based project. You will learn to prepare a solid business case for implementing health-promoting workplace interventions. This particular skill is very much wanted by employers hiring internal and external workplace consultants and managers.
