Retire Vitally – a narrative
An ageing population means an ageing workforce. This brings specific challenges for health organizations and their professionals. Our fast growing segment has a large share in problems related to vitality and employability, as well as sick leave and incapacitation. This has a personal impact first of all, but brings also a substantial and multiple societal burden. Due to the same factor ageing, especially for the healthcare sector this is an increasing burden.
For professionals, employers, the health care system and also for pension funds or insurers, this comes with increasing costs. There is a rationale to prevent this negative trend as much as we can. All stakeholders above have a common interest and the consequences of inaction for all of them – in fact all of us – are huge.
AEIP, Tela, PFZW and PGGM are convinced that combining forces is crucial for improvement. In our view, this starts with insight and sharing good practices. To find each other and collaborate for solutions will then be the next step. This is the reason why we organized Retire Vitally.
The objective of this conference was to learn about the current situation and near future, the social and economic consequences of inaction, but also about proven solutions, best practices and to connect this to the EU-policy context. Therefor we put eight international great examples as the core of our conference! Examples from Denmark, EU, Finland, France, Italy and The Netherlands.
