Digiole partners with the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council to conduct a study about the employment effects and opportunities of the digital platform economy in Uusimaa.

Besides the delivery of a final report with key findings and recommendations, we will produce open source assets and a 'Digital business design toolkit' to help SMEs create and operate new digital businesses, specifically to assist them on their strategic development of a most fitting business model and to support their digital transition from controlling and optimizing the traditional value chain, into platform business and ecosystem value generation.
"Studying the relationship between the platform economy and the labor market can be helpful in understanding the impact of this type of business model on workers and the broader economy in the Helsinki region. Research by Digiole on this topic will provide insights into the opportunities and challenges that the platform economy presents for workers, and can help policymakers and other stakeholders develop strategies to support workers and ensure fair and equitable working conditions in the platform economy. Additionally, studying the relationship between the platform economy and the labor market can help identify trends and patterns that can inform the development of new technologies and policies that can support workers and promote the growth of the platform economy in a sustainable and responsible way", Senior Advisor at The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council, Heikki Kallasvaara.
This study aims to also provide continuity to the National Roadmap for the Digital Platform Economy in which we participated in 2017, delivering a playbook for the platform business-Drafting a New PPP-Model for the Development of the National Platform Economy for Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, Finland.
