Our work

Network collaboration across borders

In addition to coaching, the project develops the services that families are offered locally, and raises awareness on different channels of support for parents. Together with our collaborators (such as state administration, NGO's and family centres), we brainstorm and develop even better ways to provide services and support to families.


Our passion is to find ways to create a more family-friendly working life in Finland!

A guide for employers about family leave

The From Family leave to working life -project offers a guide about family leave matters and family leave reform (2022) to support employers. The guide is made in cooperation with various governmental actors, labor market organizations, employers and organizations representing parents. The guide will be published in September 2022, when the family leave reform has entered into force.

The guide brings together key issues for the employer to consider before, during, and when the employee returns to work from family leave. The guide also shares information about the family leave reform.  With the help of the guide, the project supports smooth cooperation between those on family leave and the employer when transitioning to and returning from the family leave, and thus aims to contribute to a more family-friendly working life in Finland.

The guide is coordinated by the From family leave to working life project and produced by Era Content Oy.
