WorkLab 2018

7th EAWOP Practitioner Skills Workshop


Positive Interventions to Increase Employee Work Engagement

8th to 10th November, 2018
Budapest, Hungary

EAWOP invites European practitioners working in the field of Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) to join the 7th EAWOP Practitioner Skills WorkLab to be held 8-10 November, 2018.  This year’s programme is focused on positive interventions to increase employee work engagement.  Delegates will be introduced to job crafting, strengths use, and playful work design in order to maximise employee engagement. As always the programme will balance presentations of the latest research findings in an area and practical approaches to effective organisational interventions.
The workshop format will be similar to previous years; on Thursday evening we will set the stage for the workshop, followed by one and a half days with our speakers. There will be dedicated interactive sessions to facilitate the application of knowledge, tools and techniques provided in the WorkLab to delegates’ own contexts and challenges.  Delegates are encouraged to bring their own case studies to develop during the programme. 
We are proud to announce that our speakers are Professor Arnold Bakker, the influential scientist of positive organisational psychology from the Netherlands and Kristin  Dille from Norway who has been leading organisational interventions for many years. 

This year WorkLab delegates will be enjoying the historic city of Budapest and sampling its culture and heritage.
