15:30-16:00 – Technology for workable work

Presented by Raf Vrancken (Flanders Make) & Ezra Dessers (HIVA)

Workable work promotes healthy, enjoyable employment with opportunities for growth and work-life balance, benefiting both employees and companies. It enhances motivation, well-being, and openness to new experiences while reducing illness. Our Living Lab explores how technology can enhance workability. Robots can handle strenuous tasks, smart glasses aid production, yet innovation also reshapes job organization. In Flanders, achieving workable work remains a challenge, leading to sick leave and burnouts. Join us to explore how new technologies and smarter work practices can address these challenges and foster workability.
