The Workcast podcasts are produced by the Finnish Institution of Occupational Health and the programmes and research projects of the Strategic Research that study work and well-being. The main theme of the Workcast podcasts is work. Each Workcast begins with an interview “Arjen ääni” (voice of working days) that leads to the discussion about the research results of the projects.
The first Workcast handles the results of Skills, Education And the Future of Work -research project. Also the challenges of one’s middle career are discussed. Programme leader Salla Toppinen-Tanner from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health and specialist Ida Mielityinen from Akava (trade union confederation of affiliates for highly educated people) are the debaters in the first Workcast “Keskiuran katsaus” (overview on middle career).
Workcast is available on https://www.ttl.fi/workcast/ (in Finnish).
