List of topical issues

At our next research webinar at the Finnish Centre for Pensions, we will discuss how working life appears in recent research. Is the future and development of working life as unstable as claimed? Join our research webinar on Monday 13 September.

Fragmented and unstable working life continues to be the topic of public debate in Finland and elsewhere in the world. Globalisation, digitalisation, economic crises and labour market deregulation are believed to shake up the traditional model of working lives. Should we worry about working lives?

In light of research, unstable working lives appear to be a myth. In our upcoming webinar, researchers present fresh research results on the stability of working lives. At the same time, we examine how working life stability affects pensions. We also look at whether social security and the pension systems should balance working life instability – and if yes, how?

The webinar is in English.
