Short description

Learning is often highlighted in the form of continuous improvement work required in health care in order to be able to handle changing demands in innovative ways. In this context, many care workplaces want support in applying more sustainable and practical ways of conducting development work that integrates health and work environment issues. The purpose of the project is to gain an in-depth understanding of the importance of learning at different organizational levels during ongoing business development for the promotion of employees' well-being and commitment. Within the framework of the project, longitudinal connections and interactions between learning at different organizational levels and employee well-being and commitment will be analyzed. In addition, in-depth qualitative case studies will be conducted.
