Improve vitality, work engagement and performance

A large proportion of employees worldwide indicate that they get little energy from their work. The causes are generally twofold:

  1. Fatigue due to stress, work pressure and difficulty setting priorities
  2. Low involvement of employees because the job does not fit well enough

Investing in the future of the company means investing in employees, most employers agree. The question is how? How can you encourage employees in such a way that they get energy from their job and are happy to continue working for the company? You want to prevent employees from going to the competitor in this tight labor market. You can prevent this by helping them to clarify what they need from you as an employer in order to flourish.


What do they really want?


"The path to the top" is getting replaced by "the path to the heart". Success in work is increasingly described as work that fits the life you want to lead. This is consistent with the trend we are seeing of quiet quitting. The career takes on a different meaning and a different value. Terms such as bore-out and post-pandemic stress dominate the tight labor market. Many companies also struggle with poor loyalty during or after a reorganization. Nowadays it is a struggle to find and keep new employees, while employees strive for autonomy, happiness and meaningful work.

Let their path lead to your success

The employees’ perspective

Sometimes employees feel disengaged at work and look for opportunities to develop. This does not necessarily mean that they are in the wrong job. More often, they feel they are stuck and lack meaning. In addition, they are looking for the right balance to feel fit and vital.


What you can do as an employer

Offer inspirational sessions, workshops and programs that inspire employees to arrange their work and life in such a way that they experience more energy and happiness at work.


How to get engaged employees

Everyone in the company has their own development path. These are the paths that can lead to personal success and thus to better results for the company. Sandra Klijn's lectures, workshops and programs guide and steer on that path:

  • The lectures give employees inspiration for what they really want and which first steps they can take for more energy at work
  • The half- or full-day workshops give employees insight into how to manage their personal energy and they go home with their personal energy management plan.
  • The long-term programs tailor-made for the company focus on behavioral change for sustainable employability of employees.


For employees, these sessions result in an increase in vitality, work engagement and productivity. For the company, this means an improvement in the numbers of absenteeism, employee turnover and business outcomes.

Added value

Sandra provided a masterclass for us in the field of Energy Management / Energetic Teaching and this was received very positively by the participants. Sandra provides a lot of variety and energy during her training. Her practical examples, group assignments and moments for personal reflection made it a valuable day for the participants!

I recommend Sandra to everyone who is looking for an impactful speaker

Sandra is an inspiring, fun and good speaker. She processes her research and work experience in such a way that it is clear and concrete personal tools emerge. She gives examples of how young professionals are now in their work and what they find important. This gave the group real insight and recognition, and they realized a sense of shared experiences. She gives room for questions and goes deeper into specific topics if necessary. You can clearly see that Sandra feels comfortable and familiar with what she presents. It is close to her, and she knows how to convey this very well to the public. She speaks clearly and enthusiastically, which is catching for the audience. I would recommend Sandra to anyone looking for an inspiring speaker, who knows what she is talking about and who can take the audience on board and give insights into topics that are current and that affect many people.

Mindset-shifting experience

Sandra is an enthusiastic trainer that inspired me to reflect on how I spend my energy and provided insights on different levels of energy existing. She guided me through the journey of understanding importance of rituals addressing various energy dimensions and defining them for myself. The training also offered practical tips and tricks that helped me feel structurally better. Now, a couple of years after the training, I still benefit from those learnings. Thank you for the mindset-shifting experience!

Humor and energy, definitely worth repeating 

Sandra introduced our Koppert colleagues to energy management during the workshop "Boost your energy" in one day. Our employees learned how they can organize their work and private life in such a way they live their best life. Sandra is full of energy, has a lot of experience and uses a lot of humor in her workshop. We really enjoyed working with Sandra and are already looking forward to working together again!
