Due to the expertize of the organizers in the field of human health and wellbeing it was identified that the topic is very important not only locally, but EU wide, even globally.


Prim. VLASTA BROZIČEVIĆ, MD. Spec., Polyclinic TERME Selce  & Rijeka
Initiator Terme Selce Congress


Congress Partner

The need to extend the event to the EU capital – Brussels is just reasonable step forward to involve relevant institutions and upgrade the dialogue.
That will facilitate new perspective for employers and employees.  

To increase wellbeing in companies the leadership should be absolutely on board. You need to balance in any organization the stress of the activities with wellbeing. The 3rd Congress invites and motivates for change, that should be a bit more creative and faster these days.

Earn trust.
Make Change.

Congress is a platform to develop discussion how to improve the culture of health and wellbeing in companies through best practices, education, re-education, preventive health and wellness programs including digital tools, with a goal to increase efficiency and productivity, work-life balance, and most of all „Joy of Life and Work“ as said by congress initiator Primarius Vlasta Brozičević, MD., specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, rheumatology.


TERME – SELCE, Organizer

Local community support



Every local community should emphasize the importance of extended care for the health and well-being of employees, so that our cities can become pioneers of a new lifestyle and work style, and thus serve as a model of good practice within the European community. 

Investing in employee well-being is not only morally right, but also brings measurable benefits to businesses, such as reducing workforce turnover and higher employee engagement. The city of Crikvenica has been successfully implementing the ‘Healthy City’ project for years. Through the diverse activities of the project partners, including Terme Selce, we encourage the entire local community to take greater care of mental and physical health, as well as nutrition. We also motivate young people to stay and contribute to the further development of all forms of health tourism. I would particularly like to highlight the full membership of the City of Crikvenica in the Croatian Network of Healthy Cities. Many companies have recognized the benefits of our beautiful Crikvenica Riviera and its more than 130 years of tradition in the field of health and well-being, choosing our health riviera and Terme Selce for well-being programs intended for their employees. I am therefore very pleased that the City of Crikvenica has all the necessary prerequisites to be recognized as a healthy and smart city, ideal for healthy companies. My special thanks go to the entire Terme Selce team and the Brozičević family, whose immense commitment and excellence have contributed significantly to the development of Crikvenica as a renowned health destination. Their long-standing cooperation, tireless work, and dedication have enabled our Riviera to shine on the world stage and promote the beauty and quality of life we offer here.

As a destination with an excellent health and well-being offer, we believe that along with supporting corporate well-being, it is important to provide a well-deserved break and ensure a balance between work, play and recovery.
A combination of supporting a healthy work atmosphere and the opportunity to rest and relax are of utmost importance.
Health Tourism may also be used as a corporate incentive to regain the necessary well-being for employees before returning to the workplace.
We are also happy that Selce, Croatia was host to the first 2 congresses and look forward to Brussels.

Initiating and continuing initiatives on this topic in an organizational context is not always easy, but it is important, necessary, and achievable – step by step.


The mental health of workers is closely related on the one hand to many physical benefits such as lower incidence of cardiovascular diseases, stroke and sleep problems, and on the other hand to greater productivity and creativity at work and in private life.
Therefore, it is necessary to continuously improve the quality of life in mental, emotional, physical and professional aspects.
In this context, I support the organization of this 3rd Congress on the topic of well-being.


European Innovation Council has powerful programs to support visionary scientists and entrepreneurs along the whole innovation development path. Pathfinder for low TRL, Transition for preparing the commercialization, and Accelerator to execute it properly. 
Quality of life and well-being is very high on our priority list. We have Programme Managers covering very relevant sectors: Health, Med-tech and Food and Agri-tech. But we are fully aware that holistic and lifecycle approach is needed to achieve the full potential that lies ahead of us. 
3rd International Congress Corporate Wellbeing Life Quality & Joy of Work is an excellent opportunity to learn from people with very different careers. 
Looking forward to meet you in Brussels and explore possible cooperation.


In today’s fast-paced and demanding corporate world, the pursuit of profit often takes precedence over the well-being of employees. However, there is a growing recognition that fostering a culture of corporate well-being can have a profound impact on both individual happiness and organizational success. At the heart of this movement lies the concept of the “joy of work.” Mental health is another critical component of corporate well-being. High-stress levels, anxiety, and depression can be detrimental to both employees and the organization. Forward-thinking companies are implementing mental health programs, offering access to counseling services, and promoting open dialogues about mental health challenges. When employees feel supported in their mental well-being, they are more likely to bring their best selves to work. The joy of work is a multifaceted concept that encompasses physical, mental, and emotional well-being in the corporate setting. It is a mindset that values employees as individuals and recognizes their holistic needs. Companies that prioritize corporate well-being are not only more likely to attract and retain top talent but also to foster a culture of innovation and resilience. Ultimately, the joy of work is not just a lofty ideal; it is a pragmatic approach to building healthier, happier, and more successful organization.


Human capital is made up of the people who contribute to the Group’s activities every day through their know-how, expertise, loyalty and commitment to creating a collaborative atmosphere that optimizes organizational processes. To be contributors, people need to maintain their mental health.
Mental health is a human right – and therefore, it must be available to everyone, everywhere.
Mental health is an integral part of a person’s general health and is much more than the absence of mental disorders and difficulties. A person with good mental health is satisfied, optimistic, able to start a family and be happy in it, accepts other people, can create and maintain friendships, is productive in the workplace and copes well with life’s problems. These are all reasons why improving mental health is crucial, not only for individuals but also for the family and community in which they live.

Learn how to manage your own health and wellbeing.

We will help you on this path.


The wellbeing is not only a slogan or a conference. It should be spread into the mindset so the companies can sustain in the long run helping their employees.
We believe that a lot of the European high officials will join and they will also spread all information to the whole world, and definitely European countries should be priority target.


Raising general awareness about the significance of employee health can only be achieved by providing top-notch education and making systematic investments in our employees’ well-being. At dm, we recognize that nurturing our employees means investing also in our most invaluable asset: our people.


Prioritizing physical and mental well-being, including proper nutrition, often gets overlooked when we’re in good health. Our objective is to promote employees’ well-being and create awareness about the significance of physical and mental health. We do this through activities such as regular exercise, mental health education, massages, physical therapy, and promoting a healthy diet.

Corporations have a larger responsibility and impact on our societies. 
Corporate wellbeing goes beyond the 15 min meditation. It’s about awareness of overall human wellbeing and how it impacts our work.
By focusing on that, we are able to go beyond the physical health, tapping into sense of belonging, creativity and innovation.
Where financial results are a logical outcome in a sustainable and connecting way.
Happy to contribute to this Congress with our EWA ecosystem and personal experience and passion for the topic.


Development takes place at the regional and local level, with numerous projects implemented by various stakeholders. Caring for the health and well-being of every member of society should become the standard of the development project. Through various forms of dialogue, it is necessary to improve communication in planning local and regional development and contribute to a happier, healthier and more inclusive society.
Regional coordinator of Sisak – Moslavina County is looking forward to the 3rd Congress organized by Terme Selce as an important opportunity to exchange views, practices and contribute to our common goals.


Thank you for inviting me; it is a real honor to participate in this congress which covers such a vast array of topics and facets in the area of wellbeing.
I believe wellbeing in all its aspects is the greatest concern in the workplace at the moment and I am happy to see it is not a peripheral or corollary topic, but it has become the protagonist, as it should be.
I will be delighted to talk about my experience and observations in this area working for the past twenty years as a psychologist, trainer and facilitator.

#EuropeanSpas objective is also to improve the mental, physical, emotional health of our citizens and we are happy that the congress focus on employees, to be successful.

In today’s fast-paced and demanding corporate world, it’s crucial to address the wellbeing of employees.
The “Joy of Work” initiative presents a unique opportunity for Congress to engage in meaningful discussions about how to improve workplace conditions, support mental and physical health, and ultimately enhance the overall job satisfaction of workers across various industries.
Fostering a positive and healthy work environment is not only beneficial for employees, but it also contributes to a stronger economy and a more vibrant society as a whole.

Never has been paid more attention to the impact of nutrition on human health and quality of life. It is for this reason that the last chapter of the book Beer as a food product, entitled The nutritional value of beer and its impact on health, is dedicated to the impact of beer on human health.
Given that there is no similar work that could be used in higher education and as a popular scientific work, this topic is relevant and will be of special interest to the scientific community, as well as the wider public. It is suitable for food technologists, but also medical experts, considering that part of it also refers to the influence of beer on health.


Professions in aviation industry carry huge responsibility for millions lives every day around the world.
One among 10 most stressful professions is air traffic controller.
Every day all of them are faced with numerous events at their work places that affect their health and wellbeing.
Therefore we put highest priority to our human factors with various programs including prevention and permanent education.
Our collaboration with Terme Selce started at Sarajevo Team Resource Training for controllers organized by Eurocontrol and BHANSA in 2019, continued in Selce at great workshop in 2022, and continues to Brussels Congress.
Terme Selce Congress is important best practices sharing platform and place for dialogue between employers, employees and local communities officials.
I believe that the 3rd Congress 2024 in Brussels will attract not only HR experts, but also policy makers from our industry and others to create even better strategies of wellbeing for employees.
Wellbeing of air traffic controllers or any other professions brings big benefits to clients and companies.
I invite you to join us.
Let’s talk about this extremely important topic!


All jobs have some aspects that are difficult, but we should hope and expect that the workplace is an environment of joy.
Creating an environment that fosters joy requires open-minded conversations with our team about important values and how to implement them into the workplace. Therefore, we should focus on a culture centered on building relationships and community. Also, we should ensure employees understand the goals of the company and their role in achieving those goals. But most important is to encourage social impact both internally and externally through community action.


Health and well-being is an essence for success and business. We tend to forget sometimes the basics. Such a congress is a great idea to organize, to promote best practices and good examples in raising awareness. Good health means more productive business, more productive business leads to more satisfied customers and happier people.

Thank you very much for the invitation and kudos to the organizer for holding such a Congress that brings together experts from all areas of health and life. Given that life expectancy has been significantly extended, chronic diseases and the consequences of chronic diseases are on the rise. I am glad to be able to say that I deal with the treatment of those consequences, i.e. chronic wounds, which lately, after Covid, have reached pandemic proportions. The most common problems we encounter are diabetic foot, ulcers, decubitus, and other wounds that do not heal within the stipulated time. Caring for a chronic wound is a health, psychological, social and economic problem of society that requires a lot of knowledge, resources, dedicated work and time of a multidisciplinary team. 
I hope that through such congresses we can significantly influence health education about the need for disease prevention, as well as timely treatment to avoid amputation and re-amputation. Also, now among the young population, considering the work load and the increasing deterioration of the quality of life. 
I am looking forward to meeting experts from different fields hoping that at the 3rd Congress, organized by Terme Selce, we will exchange existing knowledge and experience, and gain new ones, thereby improving our future work and thus making it easier for vulnerable groups.

Human well-being is founded on good health, which can only be achieved through a suitable environment, safe food, and healthy animals.

The health and satisfaction of employees are very important for the productivity of any company. As the director of Crikvenica Tourist Board, I am proud that the organizer of this congress is a health institution from the Crikvenica Riviera, a destination that has been dedicated to health and well-being for over 130 years. 
I am confident that this year’s congress will also contribute to positive changes in workplaces and to the long-term health, satisfaction and productivity of employees.
Best-ReMaP recommendations of 24 EU and accessing Member States are clear. Obesogenic environment has to be improved, for the well-being of next generations. We need harmonized regular monitoring of processed foods to understand reformulation potentials, traditional and digital marketing of unhealthy foods to children has to be regulated at EU level, and let’s use full potential of public food procurement by setting quality, health, social and sustainability criteria, among others.
Our goal in Pharmaflight is to help you change „more work” for „work smarter”.

I am happy to support the 3rd Terme Selce Congress on behalf of the European Union of Private Hospitals. This year’s theme, quality of life and wellbeing at work, is particularly timely and relevant, as we face new challenges in the work place due to new skills and competencies required, digitalisation, career shift and mental health issues. I believe the congress will provide a unique platform for discussion and mutual learning at EU level.
