Is your company a healthy workplace?
The constantly changing working life demands a lot from supervisors and employees. People need support in the face of new types of work tasks and competence development, and they should be offered help and tools for managing their own work so that the work gives more resources than it takes. At its best, work promotes health, and healthy people help the company prosper. In a healthy workplace, working conditions and organizational culture are well-managed, employees feel well, and managers know how to lead. A healthy workplace brings out the best in its employees and creates the conditions for the best possible result.
