Here, all the necessary information gathered in one document that
it’s good for a Heltti member to know.

Part I: Heltti and occupational health
in a nutshell

What is Heltti?

Helttis, we are Heltti, your occupational health partner! Heltti is a completely Finnish occupational health company established in 2013.

We specialize in the needs of knowledge workers and assist you with all matters related to well-being, resilience, and health. We ensure that your workplace is thriving.

And hey, don’t be startled when you come over to one of our clinics (Helttilä) for an appointment; our doctors don’t wear white coats. Here, we meet and treat each other as people – not as patients. We want you to reach out to us easily, without any hesitation so that we know how you’re doing and can provide the right care at the right time.

Whether addressing legal occupational health matters or preventing and handling challenges like burnout, we’re here for you.

What is “occupational health”?

Occupational health, rooted in law, aims to prevent work-related illnesses and accidents. For knowledge workers, the primary work ability risk is burnout, and our approach focuses on early detection of signals indicating declining work ability.

Our mission extends beyond individual well-being to enhance the overall functioning of the work community by actively collaborating with employers. Your dedicated occupational health team—comprising a specialist, nurse, psychologist, and physiotherapist—is committed to managing all aspects related to your work ability.

When your ability to work is in jeopardy, the occupational health team is there to guide you through a supportive process. This includes assessments, discussions, and coordinating your return to work after your sick leave.

Part II: What services are included in our occupational health plan?

Your workplace offers you healthcare services as well as services supporting your work ability and health check-ups.

In addition to mandatory occupational health services, your occupational health includes healthcare services and, specifically, services supporting your work ability and health check-ups. In practice, this means that…

  • In HelttiLine and HelttiChat, you can reach our nurses directly.
  • If your situation requires remote or live consultation, occupational health services also include appointments with a nurse and/or doctor.
  • You are also offered an annual electronic health survey. Based on your responses, we recommend pathways such as resource coaching for sleep, exercise, stress, or resilience, health check-ups, and/or consultations with a suitable occupational health professional for your situation.

Annual Health Assessment &
Ergonomic Consultations

Take advantage of the annual digital health check-up!

The survey is automatically sent to you when the services start, and you will find the invitation in your email as well as directly in the MyHeltti service.

Answering the survey takes about 15-20 minutes and is a good opportunity to take a moment for your own health.

You will receive a summary of the survey, showing how you are doing, and the occupational health nurse will review your results. If the nurse has any concerns, they will contact you, and together you will decide how to proceed. The survey is repeated regularly every year.

Do you have concerns or challenges related to occupational ergonomics?

Please contact your occupational health nurse by logging into MyHeltti and leaving a message in the Occupational Health Messaging Channel. Your occupational health nurse will respond and, if necessary, guide you to a work physiotherapist.

The work physiotherapist is either present or available remotely for annual ergonomic consultations at your workplace. During ergonomic consultations, the work physiotherapist provides tips, such as adjusting the workstation and incorporating breaks into the work routine. It’s also possible to receive personalized guidance at your own workstation during ergonomic consultations. As remote work is prevalent nowadays, the work physiotherapist also offers various tips for ergonomic work in a home office.
