to make sure you are physically and mentally fit, but also
‘fit for the job’ and ‘fit for the future’
The last week of September is approaching which means a week of vitality and happiness at work. This will be the 7th edition with the theme from #COVID-19 to #GOFIT-21. It has been a tradition for the past couple years to increase awareness of working people in the Netherlands about their vitality.
The aim of the week is not only to remind people about their mental and physical health but provide them with an opportunity to connect with new people, gain information, inspiration, and knowledge regarding mental health. We hope to make the working force of the Netherlands aware of the importance of its own vitality.
