Use data as part of work ability management

Knowledge management is the co-creation of value between stakeholders. The benefits for you and your personnel are seen as improved work ability and longer careers. Your company benefits when disability costs fall and productivity improves. We provide you with knowledge management services and share best practices from different sectors.

Data-driven work ability management enables you to use many types of data: for example your company’s sick leave data, occupational health service statistics, personnel surveys and summaries of how many applications for vocational rehabilitation or disability pension your company has.

You can utilise the data in many ways. For example, you can use it to

  1. Produce situational information on your personnel’s work ability. This provides you with an up-to-date and holistic understanding of your company’s and your personnel’s history and current situation. 
  2. Build near-future forecasts of the impacts of the personnel structure and develop processes based on them. 
  3. Create long-term scenarios of the transition taking place in sectors and work, and thus obtain ideas to support your strategy work.
