When does an organisation make the decision to invest in an employee? And when do employees make use of schemes such as leave or training? Professor Tanja van der Lippe organised a large-scale European research in which these kinds of questions were central. She has now been nominated for the Huibregtsen Prize of the KNAW.
Van der Lippe is very happy with the nomination, although the competition for the final prize is fierce. “I see it as a big compliment, it shows that achieving a sustainable workforce is recognised as an important issue. A reward for our hard work! Of the other nominees, many come from the life sciences, I don't know what that says about our chances ... But it is very honorable to be nominated and I already receive congratulations. to a recent research project that is scientifically innovative with a clear societal relevance.
