Do you know the impact of stress on your company and its effects on your turnover? Speaker Elke Geraerts has conducted extensive research into workplace stress and mental resilience. She is therefore highly sought after as an expert speaker on these topics. As doctor of psychology Elke has worked at the universities of Harvard, St. Andrews, Maastricht and Rotterdam. She is co-founder of "Better minds at work" and inspires various organisations to generate the full human potential.

Invest in the well-being of your employees with a keynote on stress and resilience

  • In her research-based keynotes Elke Geraerts shows how insourcing strengthens resilience and empowers your brain and sets out the most important components of mental resilience.
  • Her scientific research on stress and mental resilience is internationally recognized.
  • Elke’s keynotes are interactive and include various evidence-based techniques your employees can start using straight away!

In these busy times, many employees experience uncontrollable stress that causes them to underperform or even fall out. Recent figures show that sick leave costs 250 Euro per day per employee. When an employee fails, a domino effect is created. There is more burden on the rest of the employees, who subsequently also experience more stress. More and more companies are actively taking an interest in the health of their staff, in response to the rapidly growing costs of psychological absenteeism. There is also a growing awareness in the boardrooms that intervention is necessary to ensure the long-term employability of staff.

Elke Geraerts takes a proactive approach that is founded in both theory and practical experience. You can see this approach in the company ‘Better Minds at Work’ that she founded together with Pia Buysse. With an enthusiastic team of trainers and coaches, Better Minds at Work ensures that employees are (re) finding mental resilience and are more resilient to stress and burnout. In this way they strengthen the commitment and mental well-being at work.

In her talks, speaker Elke Geraerts discusses work stress and burnout – specifically what we can do to nip them in the bud. She advises on preventive measures, which you can use proactively for yourself and for your company. She also discusses the different effects of stress on the different generations.

Throughout her keynotes Elke examines how we can show more mental resilience and how we can make ourselves and our company “burn-out proof”.

In her keynotes on mental resilience, speaker Elke Geraerts discusses how you can gain more control over your brain and your (negative stressful) thoughts, how you can exercise more conscious control and go through life in a more efficient and conscious way and how you can can be interwoven in your DNA, but also in the DNA of your company. With examples from the business world, and recent scientific studies she convinces her audience to take immediate action and to have a more optimistic and active mindset before the end of her talk.
