Solna's new project on Digital Employeeship: building competences to use smart and efficient digital work tools


Solna has identified strategic competence attraction and digitalisation as two of the main future challenges. The city's new project on Digital Employeeship, funded by the European Social Fund (ESF), aims to provide city administration managers and employees with the competences needed to use smart and efficient digital work tools.

The project will assure digital competences and increased employability for participants' within the city administration, building a flexible and modern organisation:

  • Managers will lead digitisation processes, develop peer-learning, inclusive work places and develop operations with support of digitisation.
  • Digital competence leaders will provide support to colleagues in using digital working methods in their day to day work.
  • Preschool and care staff will participate in e-learning classes and peer-learning.

The scope of the project is to strengthen employability and lifelong learning for working groups consisting of 80% women, mainly with low education backgrounds who in care services are to over 60% foreign born. The unions will actively participate throughout the project. Children, elderly people and people with disabilities will meet empowered staff who will deliver better quality services. Ultimately, improved digital competence will benefit citizens of all age groups.
