Webinar on Happiness and engagement in the workplace for quality services

Online 13 November - 10.30 to 12.00

Motivation, engagement and happiness of the staff can lead to improved services that can more effectively promote social inclusion of end users. For this reason, it is important that organisations active in the field of care have the opportunity to learn new methods and apply new tools to support and measure happiness in the workplace.

This webinar discussed initiatives to address well-being in the workplace, including the findings of the 2018 mini study on staff engagement and motivation based on good practices, found here.


  • Increased understanding of the concept of happiness and wellbeing in the workplace among staff;
  • Understanding of good practices to promote staff wellbeing and engagement

The program included a quick overview given by EPR about its Compendium of Good practices in staff engagement, motivation and retention to then move towards EPR members’ practices related to the webinar’s topic. CEDAR Foundation presented their work on well-being at the workplace, Fundacion INTRAS and SIVA also shared some of their practice with the other participants.

Natalie Schurmann, expert psychologist and coach, joined the webinar to present her work on building resilience and well being at work. EPR presented the Economy of Wellbeing recommendations issued at European level by the Finnish presidency of the Council.
