Finnish worker-representatives do not believe they can affect wages, investment, outsourcing, or other strategic decisions

Different degrees of codetermination confer workers with varying degrees of power. In Finland, workers at firms with greater than 150 employees have the right to elect up to 20% of the board, compared to Germany's 50%. Surveyed Finnish workers report feeling little control over corporate decision making. Instead, they view their role as about improving communication, information sharing, and working conditions.
