International Education Studies, v4 n4 p69-79 Nov 2011
The aim of this research was to study the phenomenon of success at work: of which elements success is constructed and what factors define the process of becoming a top worker in Finland. As an example of the top workers, "Employees of the Year" (N = 8) from different occupational fields were chosen to represent the successful workers. This article discusses how employees' of the year careers can be described and what kinds of factors have influenced their success at work? Based on the results, the phenomenon of success at work is contemplated from a positive point of view focusing on wellbeing at work and beyond. It discussed how these results can be used in education and can an educator provide as many students as possible with the experience of finding their own way and expressing their own personal characters.
