Flexible employees in changing work life (2019–2022)
Varma is involved in the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health’s study (In Finnish: Kimmoisat työntekijät muuttuvassa työelämässä) that looks into how management that empowers and values employees supports self-management and promotes the proactive development of work and employees’ competence, as well as their work engagement. As part of the study, a new tool to help workplaces and occupational health care identify burnout is validated. Several of Varma’s client organisations are taking part in the project.
