Mercure HotelRigaLatvia

This event aims to improve communication measures on Occupational Safety and Health at work and explains how to target different generations of employees.

The event kicks off with a presentation on the communication channels currently used in Latvia, giving practical examples from Latvian companies. The data from 3 surveys on working conditions and risks shows the development of communication between employers and employees in 2006, 2010 and 2013.

Speakers illustrate how to raise awareness on workplace accidents internally by using photos, posters, e-tools and games. They also present how companies in other countries use different communication measures to increase employee engagement and highlight how these companies address different age groups, for example by choosing the right channel.

The event concludes with a hands-on session to create internal communication plans fitting to the age composition of different companies.
