Welcome to Helsinki in October! International Staff Matters! Conference aims to explore current and future dynamics in social care workforce. How social care and support workforce can enable human rights in their daily work? What kind of competences, skills and qualifications are needed to provide quality support to persons with disabilities? How to develop leadership skills to manage your services and human resources in an effective way? How to create a community culture that enables great employee experiences that in turn lead to great user experiences?
The conference will focus on the topics of recruitment, retention and training of social care & support workforce in the context of the growing demand for service delivery in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UN CRPD). Conference participants will discuss and share best practices on how to manage human resources to facilitate the implementation of the UN CRPD.
In this conference we discover interesting points of view on these and many other workforce related topics from Finnish and European experts. The conference languages are English and Finnish.
The conference is organized in cooperation with EASPD, KVPS and a group of dedicated Finnish partners. EASPD is the European association of service providers for persons with disabilities.
Please notice that the conference fee is lower for the EASPD members.
