We are Jaap and Maaike Wichgers, we started our business in 2018 in the Netherlands: The Well-being at work experts. We belief it’s important to be well at work since you spend a great part of your life at work. To be well at work, you have to be well yourself. We help you to find “bliss” in your work, promote well-being and a healthy lifestyle. We also prevent burnout and sickness.
I (Maaike) was told by the people in my doctors’ room and at the workshops I gave that what I tell, everybody should know. This was told to me so often, that the idea of founding a new company arose. Together with Jaap, being an experience expert with different kinds of jobs, the well-being at work experts was born.
We use the definition of the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding health. Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Even when you’re sick it doesn’t always mean you can’t work. Your work should be made suitable to your possibilities, this is a collective responsibility of both employer and employee. Maybe, you even should change the work-environment to your own needs.

Perhaps you have the feeling you are underperforming in life and in your work. Possibly you have troubles in your life, your relationships and even in your work (communication problems, misfunctioning). And maybe you have the feeling you can do more, but it doesn’t work out the way you want it.
