Ongoing Research

Get to know about our research project: We All Finland

Social and Economic Sustainability of Future Working Life

The WeAll Consortium brings together a multidiscipliary research team based at the University of Helsinki, Hanken School of Economics, and Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics.

The Project is funded by the Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland. SRC provides funding for long-term and programme-based research aimed at finding solutions to the major challenges facing Finnish society.

In the WeAll project we explore factors that support and, on the other hand, restrict the opportunities of different people and diverse groups in working life. Demographic changes, regional differences, the reconciling of work and private life, as well as organisational and management practices, all affect these opportunities. We address how age, gender, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and location have an impact on working life. Our collaboration and dialogue with stakeholders promotes the co-production of knowledge on equalities and inequalities in working life, and on well-being at work.



  • creates new knowledge for the development of sustainable and equal working life in rural and urban contexts

  • develops information and tools for identifying diversity and promoting equality at work

  • identifies barriers to employment and possibilities for reconciling work and other spheres of  life

  • contributes research-based proposals for policies and practices for the improvement of well-being at work and the lengthening of careers

  • provides knowledge for decision-making processes on the development of working life and the renewal of basic services and benefit schemes.

WeAll combines academic research and societal engagement in new ways. WeAll develops and enhances dialogue between the multidisciplinary research group and stakeholders in working life.
