The Helsinki Graduate School of Economics (Helsinki GSE) has established a situation room to support ministries and other public authorities in economic policy-making during the coronavirus crisis. The Helsinki GSE situation room aims to provide decision-makers with a close to real-time view on developments in the corporate sector, the labor market, and society in general.

The Situation Room will publish its second report on Thursday 23 April 2020 at 8 am, and a webinar on the topic will also start at this same time in the Zoom app (link below). This second report utilises graphs to illustrate how lay-offs and redundancies caused by the corona crisis have hit different employee groups. Employees are monitored by region, income category and level of education.

The weekly webinars will be held in Finnish; they are open to everyone and free of charge.

More information on the Situation Room and its latest public reports can be found on the Helsinki GSE website.
