Over the past 10 years, a lot of attention has been paid to stress and burn-out — an important step forward. Yet, stress reduction is not enough to sustainably address our greatest challenges within organizations. As soon as symptoms appear, we look for an effective way to combat and alleviate these symptoms. We will respond as soon as the crisis has arrived, for example in the form of burnout or other types of (psychological) absenteeism. That is why it’s important to shift our focus from curative to prevention. With a worldwide conference, we are taking a first serious step toward more vitality by making the preeminent knowledge about vitality available to a large audience so that prevention can become the new standard.
Who are we
The Dutch Expertise Centre for Vitality (NEV) serves leading companies and organizations that want to invest preventively in the sustainable employability and vitality of their personnel and management. We do so by using structural solutions in the form of high-end diagnostics, scientific and measurable interventions that result in a return (efficiency) on human and financial capital.
Our interventions are based on scientific frameworks that have not previously been made practically accessible to the Dutch market. Our integral combination and application of positive psychology, neurobiology and systems science is unique. Thus, NEV brings together scientific research, years of practical experience and digital solutions to make vitality accessible to everyone who has an interest.
NEV consists of a Learning & Development department that, together with customers, develops integrated solutions for sustainable absenteeism reduction and employability and a Health Innovation department that continuously improves the quality of our services and products in terms of quality and impact through technology and scientific research.
We have one mission: to make health and vitality available to everyone.
