MDI continues to evaluate programmes for the development of work life

MDI evaluates the WORK2030 programme coordinated by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The assessment will be carried out in collaboration with Owal Group and will be conducted between November 2021 and the autumn of 2023.

The goals of the evaluation are 1) to assess the implementation of the programme’s objectives, sub-objectives and measures, 2) to assess the programme’s effectiveness and the scope and sustainability of its activities and 3) to provide an insight into the programme’s long-term social impact. The evaluation seeks to highlight issues arising at different stages of the programme: whether it is doing the right things to attain its objectives (relevance, efficiency and effectiveness).

External evaluation also produces information in cooperation with developmental evaluation to improve the implementation of the programme. As part of the evaluation, MDI will organise workshops to review the findings and to support the programme’s operations with information. The methods used in the evaluation are documentary analysis, interviews, surveys and dialogic workshops. As part of the evaluation, indicator work will also be carried out. The indicators are linked to the proactive evaluation model and its measurement. Information is produced for other indicators, for example through the programme’s own monitoring data, surveys and statistics.

The interim report conveys the main (current) results of the evaluation, especially with a view to the future Government Programme. In addition to the Final Report, the evaluation work will also produce presentation materials in PowerPoint format.
