This page provides information for employers in the region of Satakunta who are interested in recruiting international employees.
Preparing for international recruitment
It is very important to prepare a company and its work community to receive international employees. By providing sufficient coaching, a company strengthens diversity management within the organisation, supports its work community and helps its foreign employees through the process of job induction and becoming a member of the work community.
New international employees and cultural differences can bring positive synergies to a company, but can also introduce uncertainty and communication issues. The foundations for positive interactions and a preliminary operating model are important for everyone and significantly support the new employee’s integration into the work community and society at large.
The international recruitment process and finding international talent
The international recruitment process often involves aspects that are unnecessary to consider when hiring domestic employees. Such aspects include, for example, different permit issues that must be handled prior to a foreign employee’s arrival in Finland.
Numerous public and private services are available to support companies in the successful implementation of international recruitment.
Supporting the integration process
In addition to the preparations for recruitment and the recruitment process itself, it is equally important to ensure that foreign employees receive the help they need to settle in Finland and their new municipality of residence. The aim of integration services is to help new foreign employees and their families to settle into the society and their new living environment in Finland. Successful integration is an important factor in terms of work satisfaction and employee retention. Private and public services are available to help with the integration process.
