Well-being at work – Proactive measures

Work ability management refers to actions that you, as employer, can take to facilitate the well-being of your employees, in other words, to advance and maintain their occupational safety, work ability and health while also supporting their ability to cope within the workplace. In practice, work ability management involves, for example, developing the quality of leadership within your company, promoting the competence of your personnel and improving their mental or physical capacities. You can undertake proactive measures with your employees or in co-operation with your occupational health service and other experts.

As an employee, you, too, manage your well-being and work ability proactively. By taking care of your own resources, maintaining a good attitude and keeping your skills up to date, you will be able to rise to the challenges presented by changes in working life and experience moments of success in your everyday life.

You will know you’ve succeeded with work ability management when health and individual factors are in balance with the demands of the work!

We advise individuals and groups

If you would like to brainstorm your ideas and get tips on how others have initiated similar work ability development projects, we are here to assist and support you. We will review your situation and provide you with our proposal on how to move things forward.

Further expertise and perspective can also be gained from the events we organise. Our training sessions are held both in person and as webinars, so you can choose the method that suits your needs best. Classroom training provides you with useful information as well as the competence and experiences of other participants, while webinars allow you to focus strictly on the matter at hand.

We provide guides and tools

We have created tools that are designed to support work ability management in your company. These tools are at your disposal in our online service. You’ll find guides and forms that are useful, for example, in development discussions, induction processes, early support and work adaptation.

Our networks offer skilful assistance

Our network co-operation allows us to provide you with an even broader range of expertise. We can share the latest research from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health to support work ability management. We develop and assess good practices with occupational health services, as well.

We grant financial support for services provided by third parties

If you undertake to implement a project for the purpose of reducing any proven disability risks in your company and choose to have it implemented by a third party (such as a training company), you can apply to Veritas for well-being at work support. When determining the amount of support, we comply with the guidelines of the Financial Supervisory Authority to calculate the amount of the disability risk management component based on your company’s payroll and assess it with the proven level of disability risk. The majority of the financial investment in the project will, however, be provided by your company.

You can apply for support by filling out the application form in our online service and sending it to us at tyokyky@veritas.fi or by contacting either your own insurance contact or our work ability experts.
