Solutions for creating healthy workplaces – from individuals to the organizational level
A healthy workplace is not created by chance, but through planning. Increased workload from professional and personal life manifests as sick leaves. Although treating the symptoms may resolve acute issues, a healthier work environment is built on a more sustainable foundation by focusing on the sources of the workload. To achieve the most effective results, we must proactively solve these root causes that threaten the workplace. As a partner in the workplace, we help prioritize what is most important.
Anticipation through the most important
Our working life solutions tackle the factors that burden your work community, from individuals to the organizational level, where it has the most impact.
Services for mental well-being
The challenges of our time can be seen as growing mental health symptoms. Acute care is the most important thing for those who need it, and the easier help is available, the earlier problems can be tackled and work ability supported without even the first sick leave.
Physical work ability
According to the Finnish Centre of Pensions, musculoskeletal disorders are the most common reason for being on a disability pension. Maintaining physical ability to work as the working-age population ages requires a planned and proactive approach.
Work ability coaching
Extending working careers is an essential goal in terms of individual well-being, organizational performance and society. Changed work requires new skills, and when an employee's strengths and skills are identified, it is possible to create a more sustainable career path for them. Our work ability coaches also support the company's HR functions by helping to identify work ability risks.
Management and work community development
Mental health challenges are a growing risk of work ability, but when the acute situation is under control, it is necessary to look at the bigger picture, from the reformulation of work to the management of the work ability, humanity and culture of the organization, which achieve the most far-reaching and preventive solutions.
Consultation for work ability management
Only with knowledge you increase health. The most effective work ability management needs a plan based on information to support it, so that measures can be targeted where they have the most impact.
An organization works efficiently when it takes into account both operational and human efficiency in its operations. As professionals in organizational psychology, we release the human potential of your organization for the growth of your business.
