Virtual Event: What can be done to support a healthy and productive European workforce and society?

28 October 2021

The Societal Impact of Pain (SIP) held 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 was hosted by MEP Alex AGIUS SALIBA (S&D, Malta) and MEP Radka MAXOVÁ (S&D, Czechia) to discuss the paper’s recommendations in more detail.

SIP organised 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.
