Per January first 2018 University of Twente collaborates with Arbo Unie. The Arbo Unie team consist of psychologists, corporate psysicians and employability coaches. Below a short introduction of the staff members of the UT Arbo Unie team:
My name is Johan de Jong, 56 years, occupational health and radiation physician. Important aspects of my work, both in relation to employee / client and work together with employer, are professional expertise and independence, trust and transparency. Within these conditions, I would like to show my commitment, advise when it is needed and asked for and I would like to take a closer look at the different themes on work and health.
Disease, absenteeism, disability and sustainable employability. Just some of the terms you hear from time to time, but it is what I daily do. As an employability coach I advise organizations and employees in terms of disability and employability. I use my experience as a staff advisor and a nurse. Important aspects for me in a lasting relationship with customers are equivalence, honesty and clarity. From my consultancy role at Thales, I am familiar with the target group of highly trained technical staff. I keep fit by doing a lot of sports (running, cycling and skating) I look forward to a pleasant cooperation with you.
My name is Sarah van Keulen MSc., 31 years old. I work as a psychologist at Arbo Unie. As a psychologist I support people with different complaints, for instance anxiety- and mooddisorders, burnout, and neurodevelopmental disorders as (ASD) Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder). In some cases people can’t go to work as a result of their complaints, in other cases it’s a goal to prevent this from happening.
Because I’ve studied (Workpsychology and Clinical psychology) and worked as a teacher in the subject Communication Skills at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, I can relate to how it’s like to work in an university. During my work I think it’s important to look for the strength and possibilities of a person.
I am Riejanne van Woerkom and work as a psychologist at Arbo Unie. As a psychologist, I treat people who suffer from burn out, depression, anxiety or people who, for other reasons, feel that they can no longer handle their work (mentally). People who would like to prevent falling out can come to me as well. I guide people with different backgrounds and from various organizations. These include educational institutions such as Saxion college and various primary schools, as well as healthcare institutions, municipalities and companies in the commercial sector.
