Welcome to Espoo Finland to discuss the new working time policy recommendations, models and solutions. We will present the results of a large 5-year Nordic project WOW on working hours, health, well-being and participation in working life.
The characteristics of working hours are becoming increasingly flexible in all Nordic countries. Every fifth employee, mostly in lower socioeconomic groups, are also working in shifts. Working hours are related to health, work-life balance and welfare, but they are also associated with socioeconomic differences; timing of work is socially constructed and gendered.
The overall aim of an extensive 5-year Norforsk-funded project Working hours, health, well-being and participation in working life (WOW) – creating new working time models and solutions for Nordic countries has been in developing evidence-based models and solutions related to working hours in order to support health, well-being and work participation. The project is approaching its end during 2020 and has provided an extensive amount of new scientific research and working time-related solutions to support well-being.
