Increasingly digitalised workplaces and the ability to work anytime, anywhere create both opportunities and risks for the well-being of workers.

The EMPL (European Committee on Employment and Social Affairs) held a workshop on 2 December 2021 on Mental health and well-being in the digital world of work post COVID.

The workshop had four presentations, each followed by a Q&A session.

The presentations touched upon:

  • the cost of poor mental health and the cost of inaction;
  • digitalisation in the world of work;
  • innovative and practical ways to create a resilient workplace;
  • the role of legislation at national and EU level.
