Well-being at work and results from work ability management
Work ability management advances smooth work activities while also promoting the work ability, health and occupational safety of the employees. Work ability management refers to good, everyday leadership that involves performance management and an ability to proactively raise issues related to work ability and to take full advantage of the expertise provided by partners, such as your occupational health care provider and Elo.
Work ability is at its optimal level when employees succeed in accomplishing the targets set for their own work. Employers should invest in the development of work and working conditions, a functional work community and dynamic supervisory work, which all contribute to ensuring successful work performance.
Work ability management and the development of well-being at work activities are always the responsibility of the organisation’s management. Functional collaboration is ensured by specifying roles and distributing responsibilities within the company. A supervisor, for example, must be aware of what his or her role is in terms of work ability management. Correspondingly, responsibilities can be assigned to the executive management, to HR, to payroll administration, to the occupational health and safety organisation, to personnel representatives, etc.
Successful work ability management improves your company’s result. Good work ability management helps to decrease costs brought about by absences due to illness, disability pensions and occupational accidents of employees. The result is also affected by, among other things, the development of the work community atmosphere and quality of supervisory work, even though these aspects are not as easily reflected in the company’s financial result.
