Work environment

A good work environment, regardless of workplace, as well as balance between requirements and resources, promotes well-being, health, motivation and thus performance.

Balance in life


Employees should be involved in a dialogue about the balance between
expectations and resources, with the possibility to influence their
situation. Employees should know what is prioritised. Recovery
during working hours, in the form of breaks, must be made possible
and encouraged.
The active work with preventive psychosocial health should be clarified
and prioritised. Knowledge of early signs of ill health needs to increase.

Flexible working life

Remote work should be part of the normal situation. The physical as
well as the organisational and social work environment must be
ensured regardless of where the work is performed.
It must be clear what applies to employees without overtime compensation, regarding free placement of working hours.

Hybrid meetings and digital work environment


Knowledge and support in issues such as ergonomics, digital work and
remote collaboration need to increase.
In the new mix of office presence and remote work, the offices must
be adapted to be appropriate, ensure the individual’s efficiency and
well-being, and promote creativity and collaboration. The meeting
culture at hybrid meetings needs to be developed to ensure inclusion.
There should be enough space for creative work and teamwork, conference rooms with the right and well-functioning technical equipment,
quiet rooms and places for recovery and reflection. The employee influence when designing offices needs to increase. Safety inspection tours
for digital work environment should be introduced and applied.
Introduction for new employees and in-house recruits needs to be
strengthened.
