Mela’s occupational wellbeing activities aim to enhance the occupational safety and wellbeing of our customers by providing services that support occupational wellbeing. We also fund research that promotes the occupational safety and wellbeing of recipients of grants and scholarships.
Mela organises annual wellbeing days for recipients of grants and scholarships with different themes each year. The programme includes a wide range of lectures concerning occupational wellbeing, as well as practical exercises and activities. Further information about our wellbeing days is available on the Mela website in finnish, on the Facebook page for recipients of grants and scholarships, and by e-mail: tyhy (at) mela.fi
Wellbeing days are held in Finnish.
