Back to Work Sessions – How do we build a more socially Sustainable Future of Work
As many of us are now beginning the process of transitioning back to work and finding our new normal, we decided to ask experts their opinion on how we can do this in a more socially sustainable way. Each month beginning in September 2021 and ending in January 2022, Head of Research Hertta Vuorenmaa will interview different experts to get their views on the future of work, how we can build individual, organizational and societal resilience.
The experts interviewed come from a variety of backgrounds, including an ordained pastor and science journalist, a philosopher, a health coach and a neurologist.
The events will be recorded and uploaded to Aalto University’s YouTube channel. The links to each interview will be published on the event site.
The series of interviews kick off with pastor and journalist Hilkka Olkinuora on September 21st. Professor Esa Saarinen continues in October, and November's guest is neurologist and professor Kiti Müller. Then we will start the new year off well in January with Senior Performance Coach Heikki Huovinen at Hintsa Performance, who discusses maintaining both physical and mental wellbeing at work. Professor Jari Hakanen will join us in February.
