Meet the Good work goals

What are the Good work goals?

The Good work goals aspire to a working environment that is safer, healthier, more resilient, more inclusive, happier, more balanced, more sustainable, more supportive, more meaningful and more responsible.

The Good work goals do this by suggesting a series of actions in each of those 10 domains that employers can take to guarantee a good working environment for their employees.

In collaboration with Antwerp Management School , B-Tonic defined the Good work goals to put emphasis ont he fact that good working conditions are an important responsibilty, not only in times of stability and prosperity, but also – and even more so – in times of crisis and restoration.
