Valvira has national oversight for ensuring that everyone in Finland has the right to wellbeing, high-quality services and safe living conditions.
Effective oversight – responsible actors
Valvira’s new strategy rests on three strategic focuses. The first focus, We increase safety in the customer, patient and living environment by ensuring responsible operations, like our new vision, highlights the importance of self-monitoring.
The second strategic focus is to safeguard national equality. The importance of this task is highlighted in a situation where Valvira and the six independent regional state administrative authorities continue to operate: it is important to ensure that the licencing and supervision activities of the authorities – Valvira, the regional state administrative authorities and the municipalities – is consistent and constant.
The third strategic focus, our operations are based on up-to-date and reliable information, highlights the importance of high-quality, shared information.
In addition to strategic focuses, Valvira has identified four so-called enablers, which essentially affect achievement of the strategic objectives. The enablers chosen are customer-driven digitalisation, interaction and cooperation, open and effective communication, and competent and satisfied personnel.
