International Talents to Boost the Growth of Päijät-Häme Region

Finding a skilled workforce is one of the biggest challenges in companies’ growth and internationalisation efforts. International jobseekers offer great potential and expertise to the labour market, and in Lahti, for example, more than a third of unemployed international jobseekers are highly educated (in Finnish). In addition, international talents have extensive language skills and knowledge of markets and cultural environments of different regions of the world.

The growth opportunities offered by international talents are too valuable to be overlooked. Please contact us if your company or organisation wants to use the potential brought to the region by international talents!
