    We are in the midst of a major change. Challenges relating to the future of work are easy to name, but complex long-term shifts such as the revolution of work are difficult to translate into policies and tangible solutions. It is still nevertheless possible to steer the process with the help of a shared long-term visions.
    The goals of this study were to identify desirable futures for work, decision-making needs and societal solutions based on expert interviews and a national population survey. The report also outlines a model for long-term dialogue on the future of work. With regard to the five themes discussed, the report is based on Part 1 of the Government Report on the Future (Prime Minister’s Office 2017). The research process was conducted by Demos Helsinki in co-operation with VTT Technical Research Center Finland.
    The most important findings of the study are as follows: The forms of work and employment are becoming more diverse, which calls for changes in legislation and social security. Work is becoming less and less tied to time and place, but the change is not as strong or happening at the same time in all sectors. Continuous learning is emphasized in education: Finland needs a high-quality lifelong learning system that covers the entire population. New ways of making a living are emerging as the labour market and all aspects of work become more flexible. Decision-makers need to understand not just the economic value of work but also its multifaceted instrumental value in order to prevent a scenario where we begin to promote conflicting goals.
