Long-term effects of the work well-being project in a municipal health care unit

The Finnish Work Environment Fund has granted 10,000 € for the project. Work well-being affects, for example, sick leave and the productivity of work. A lot of work well-being projects are carried out in the workplace, but research data on long-term effects are limited. This project examines work well-being variables (KivaQ) in municipal health care with 1000 persons, 47 units at baseline  and two and four years after the development workshops that involve personnel from 8 units. The results are compared with control units and national reference data.
