The WORK2030 programme started in 2020 as a part of Finnish Prime Minister Sanna Marin’s government platform. Led by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, the program was guided by the vision that by 2030 Finland will become a leading working life innovator, and the country will rank number one in global occupational well-being.
“No single operator can achieve the grand-scale change that modern working life needs. Digitalisation is changing working file, baby boomers are exiting the labor pool, workforce is decreasing, and at the same time new jobs are being introduced while old ones are becoming obsolete. Constant change requires a shared vision of the future and a new way to think about working life,” WORK2030’s Program Director Sanna Kulmala says.
The WORK2030 programme’s goal was to produce innovations and concrete tools for improving working life and provide them for free for everyone to use. To enable versatile and fruitful dialogue, involving a wealth of stakeholders was key.
