When a common voice can be heard and people have the opportunity to influence their work, the well-being of personnel increases. In the transportation sector, the personnel’s influencing opportunities are unclear in many ways. Meeting discussions and corridor conversations are not implemented into concrete actions. A straightforward and easy joint development model for work ability promotion was developed within the Young Driver Can! project of the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. The Hitting Home model is a tool providing information on employees’ thoughts and on issues that may require development.
For whom: Transportation companies, occupational health care services, trainers. Participants may come from different companies and work in different positions. Familiarity with the principles of the Work Ability House model is required in leading the exercise. Where: Work ability promotion events, development events, meetings. Duration and number of participants: 2 hours, 10–20 participants. Equipment: Flip chart, flip chart paper, felt-tip pens, the Work Ability House model template (can be made yourself), ordinary sheets of paper, adhesive tape and/or Blu-tack, vacant wall space where flip chart sheets can be attached with adhesive tape or Blu-tack, a camera for taking pictures of the groups’ output.
