The Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) will hold a virtual event on the 28th of October 2021, 14:00-17:00 CEST on pain and workplace integration and adaptation.
Influencing employment-related policies is one of SIP’s priorities for 2021, and in June SIP published its position paper on Workplace Integration and Adaptation. This paper highlights the need for action by European Institutions, national governments, and employers to take action to support a healthy and productive European workforce and society.
The online event will be hosted by MEP Alex AGIUS SALIBA (S&D, Malta) and MEP Radka MAXOVÁ (S&D, Czech Republic) to discuss the paper’s recommendations in more detail.
SIP is organising this event in response to the European Institutions’ commitment to the implementation of the European Pillar of Social Rights' Action Plan, the EU Health and Safety Strategic Framework 2021-2027, and the EU Strategy for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2021-2030.
