Modified work for your needs – utilise the services of people with partial work ability

Do you need help with grocery shopping, does your business have materials in need of archiving, should someone wash your couch or water your lawn, or do you have other jobs that need doing?

In Work Activity Services we have workers for a wide variety of tasks. By utilising our services, you also provide people with disabilities and partial work ability the experience of salaried work. A support person will accompany the worker if necessary.

How to order workers

Jobs can be ordered by a business, an association, an organisation, a private person or an operator of the City. As the client, you will pay €14.50/hour (+ VAT) per worker for the jobs. The workers are paid €10/hour.

Depending on the job, we may deploy one or several workers. Repeating jobs can also be arranged.

As the client, you will not be an employer. All employer obligations and insurance matters will be taken care of by Work Activity Services.

As the client, you will have to take care of the following matters:

  • Providing a description of and familiarisation with the job
  • Announcing the time of the job and the number of working hours
  • Providing tools and equipment for the job if necessary
  • Accepting the order terms and conditions
  • Selecting a suitable invoicing option and paying the invoice

We support work ability together

The Jobcenter model that facilitates modified work is being developed and piloted as part of the Työkykyisempi Stadi (‘More Able-Bodied Stadi’) project. The model enables people with disabilities and partial work ability to try salaried work with a low threshold without losing their right to participate in work activities according to their own abilities and resources.

The project is part of the national Work Ability Programme.
