Objective of the project
The objective of the project Voi hyvin! is to support the self-employed and micro-entrepreneurs to take care of their own well-being as part of the every day activity of the business and as part of the development of business.
They will be offered an opportunity to get peer coaching as well. The objective is also to construct and test a model and practices for supporting wellbeing of self-employed and micro-entrepreneurs as part of their everyday activity and as a development of the activity of the enterprises.
The project is divided into four periods. In each period, the new participating entrepreneurs will start with a needs evaluation phase (1. NeedCamp). During NeedCamp, the strengths, needs and challenges related to well-being of entrepreneurs will be evaluated together with the entrepreneurs. The goal is that during the NeedCamp phase the entrepreneurs themselves may define their personal developmental plans to enhance their well-being and develop their enterprise.
Each entrepreneur may then choose one to three functional camps (2. ActCamps) supporting their well-being.
After the ActCamps, the results are evaluated together with the entrepreneur and the next steps planned in order to pursue permanent change in the EvalCamp phase (3. EvalCamp).
As a result, the entrepreneurs participating in the project are better equipped to take care of their well-being at work as part of their overall well-being and as part of their work activities and developmental activities as entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs will also have peer support at their disposal mainly through a digital Camp Channel. The self-efficacy of the entrepreneurs has been strengthened during the project. As a result of the project, an operations model has been produced and the best practices have been tested for supporting self-employed and micro-entrepreneurs in their wellbeing as part of their work activities.
