We have explored with the Works Council and the trade unions how to keep employees healthy, safe and motivated through to their retirement. The various training programs we offer as an employer include the module Fit for Boskalis, which aims to provide employees with information on a healthy lifestyle and encourage them to put these into practice. Because lifestyle involves more than just physical fitness, in 2015 attention was also paid to mental health and for the first time we offered a course on effectiveness and mindfulness at work.
Furthermore, we give our employees ample opportunities to shape their own career. This is a fixed item in performance reviews, in which employees can say whether they would like to retrain, for example for a different, less physically demanding job. We are open to this approach and offer our staff ample development opportunities. In addition, we try to accommodate them as much as possible in the various life phases, for example enabling them to work on projects in the Netherlands for a number of years if that is more appropriate to their phase in life.
