Donders Challenge: Toolkit on sensitivity at the workplace

Developing a toolkit on sensitivity to the environment at the workplace

An estimated 20–30% of working people are highly environmentally sensitive. This often comes with empathy, creativity and giftedness, but at the same time with a more quiet, reflective or thoughtful personality, and a higher risk of overstimulation. Awareness of high sensitivity in the workforce is low, which can result in stress and burnout and the lack of nurturing the qualities that come with it. 

We aim to develop a free toolkit that raises awareness, provides a tool to recognise environmental sensitivity, give practical handles to prevent overstimulation, and to raise inclusiveness.
