The Finnish working life development strategy challenges workplaces to develop working life from their own starting points. The aim is that all workplaces will achieve at least a good basic level, before moving on to the developer level and thereafter forerunner.
The development levels help to evaluate the level of a workplace. A workplace can be at
good basic level, which means that all the basics are in order and everyday work and attending to duties run smoothly.
developer level, which means that development efforts are initially carried out through separate projects and later through a versatile, systematic approach.
forerunner level, which means that the workplace boasts excellent or world-class products, services, operational concepts, workplace communities and their continuous development.
