Sustainable working life

onsdag 10 oktober 2018

To create a better working day every day, it is the purpose of the new working work area Sustainable working life. Through innovative thinking, simple and confidence-building services, the goal is to create healthy and committed work in the central government sector.

There are many factors that affect the development of modern working life and, with this as a starting point the Social Partners’ Council has initiated, the new working area Sustainable working life. The working area should create the conditions for a well-functioning working life and counteract ill health. This will be done by the Social Partners’ Council offering local parties relief, prevention, promotion and development efforts at the authorities.

The goal is to contribute to both healthy and committed workplaces through a wide range of reactive and proactive services. The services have different approaches.

  • Remedial efforts for return to work – Concrete efforts for effective return to work after sick leave
  • Preventive action against illness – Proactive efforts to prevent and deal with problems
  • Promoting efforts to create commitment – Stimulating efforts that contribute to an active and well-functioning organization, for example through working solidarity and job satisfaction
  • Developing efforts for learning and career – Focused efforts to enable continuous development at the workplace.
