The congress will be held between June 29th and July the 2nd, 2023 in Casa de Campo, the exclusive and world-renowned resort area of the Dominican Republic.
"We will bring together close to 500 Hispanic professionals, business owners, senior executives, human resources leaders, coaches, general and mental health professionals from Latin America, the United States and Europe, to discuss the tools to combine business productivity and personal well-being," explained Maria Mendez, president and founder of Vacation Is a Human Right Foundation (VIAHR), the event's organizer, in an official statement.
The organizers of this congress consider that "conscious breaks" should be established as a daily and life habit, to result in less exhausted and stressed employees, resulting in more friendly and humanized environments.
This event is relevant, since in January 2022, the latest revision of the International Classification of Diseases, of the World Health Organization, came into force, where it is established that burnout syndrome or Burnout is a work-related problem.
"This disorder has repercussions and alters people's work capacity. It affects the quality of work, job satisfaction, motivation, commitment, teamwork and cohesion, said Dr. Ramón Tallaj, ambassador of VIAHR and president of Somos Community Care, a health entity in New York.
Méndez said that following the congress, "VIAHR will benefit 50 low-income, burnout-affected, Latina, Asian and Afro-descendant health and education workers from Latin America and the Caribbean.
Guest speakers at the event include: Carl Honoré, writer and spokesperson for the Slow Down Movement (UK); Alejandra Vallejo-Nágera, psychologist and wellness expert (Spain); Dr. Néstor Braidot, neuroscientist (Spain), Ismael Cala, strategist and communicator (USA); Aldo Cívico, coach and leadership expert (Italy); and Michael Leiter, psychologist and burnout expert (USA).
