In a world where burnout rates continue to rise, and where people are retiring later than ever, ensuring the sustainable employability of your employees is paramount. This is especially true now, and we have good news: until November 30th, all Dutch companies have the opportunity to apply for a subsidy to enhance the sustainable employability of their team. This opportunity falls under the temporary Customized Scheme for Sustainable Employability and Earlier Retirement (in Dutch: Maatwerkregeling Duurzame Inzetbaarheid en Eerder Uittreden, or MDIEU in short), which runs until 2025.

What Does the MDIEU Subsidy Entail?
With the MDIEU, the government aims to encourage companies to invest in the sustainable employability of their employees. Therefore, the existing subsidy scheme has been temporarily expanded. Every company is unique, and the government understands that programs need to be tailored to the company's culture. That's why companies that conduct an analysis and create an activity plan that aligns with their specific needs can receive up to 50% of the program's costs subsidized.
