Understanding and supporting the digital and green transition as part of well-being at work

In the project, we will examine the opportunities and challenges of the twin (digital & green) transition in work life. The aim is to promote the implementation of the transition in the workplace in an inclusive and fair way that supports well-being at work.

The twin transition in work life refers to the implementation of the green transition by utilising the opportunities of digital information technology in the development of products, services, operating processes and work environments. 

At workplaces, the twin transition can cause many concrete changes to processes, working practices, products and services. The transition may even require a comprehensive overhaul of business models. 

Identifying the opportunities and risks of the twin transition requires researched information. Research data can be used to promote the realization of the transition and to anticipate and monitor its effects on work, competence and well-being at work.

In the project:

  1. We will explore digitalization as an opportunity to promote a sustainable green transition in business and work life.
  2. We will explore the potential of AI solutions to accelerate and support the green transition at work.
  3. We will explore the possibilities and risks related to the development of well-being at work and competence included in the twin transition. 
  4. We will develop research-based, effective ways to promote the twin transition of workplaces, develop the competencies required for the transition, support well-being at work and prevent risks. 

Data and methods

In the project, we will conduct literature reviews on the connections between the green transition, digitalization, artificial intelligence and competence, and we will carry out expert interviews with different parties from work life. 

We will complement the previous employee survey on Climate Change and Work ( with themes related to the twin transition, and develop corresponding data collection for mapping the employer perspective.  

Results and impact

The project produces data on the effects of the twin transition on the work of individuals, the activities of work organizations and, more broadly, on work life. This data can be utilized in research, political decision-making, extensive development programmes, and work organizations' own development work. 

We will organize workshops and seminars for decision-makers and other stakeholders within the project. Discussions with these stakeholders will help us build an image of the effects on work life of the twin transition and provide research data for decision-making bodies.
