Sustainable participation of all health professionals is the most direct contribution to dealing with potential workforce related issues.
HOSPEEM therefore warmly supports the 2016-2017 EU-OSHA Campaign promoting Healthy workplaces for all ages, thereby identifying the need for continuing focus and priority on sustainable participation over the entire professional career, from internship until retirement.
Together with its counterpart EPSU (the European Federation of Public Service Unions), HOSPEEM will continue to promote the creation and maintenance of the safest possible workplaces and to promote active participation in continuing professional development (CPD) and life-long learning (LLL) for all health professionals irrespective of age, profession or employment contract.
A joint declaration on this topic, that HOSPEEM and EPSU intend to agree on before the summer of 2016, will give a strong impulse to the promotion of CPD and LLL both at European and national level.
I am convinced that these initiatives will lead to a more sustainable participation of health professionals of all ages.
Mission Statement: 
The European Hospital and Healthcare Employers’ Association (HOSPEEM) represents national employers’ organisations at the European level that operate in the hospital and healthcare sectors. As a European social partner organisation, HOSPEEM promotes the views of healthcare employers on workforce and industrial relations issues within the Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee for the Hospital Sector.
Formed in 2005, HOSPEEM currently has 18 members across the European Union both in the state or regionally controlled hospital sector and in the private health sector.
Our campaign pledge: 
HOSPEEM will give visibility to the EU-OSHA campaign mainly through its website and its newsletter as well as by disseminating information on the campaign and raise awareness on the issue among its member organisations.
HOSPEEM will support and contribute to the EU-OSHA campaign together with EPSU in the context of relevant activities of their Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee and in the framework of their upcoming joint project focusing on recruitment and retention of health workforce and foreseeing a seminar dedicated to the campaign topic.
