Training for the corporation’s new foreign employees and their families


Becoming internationalised is a great challenge to corporations as well as to employees. Recruiting suitable people, providing them with appropriate training, their eventual repatriation and adaptation to their home surroundings, these are just some of the issues to be addressed by personnel management. Foreign employees relocating to Finland have difficulties of their own. Finland is quite a challenge to foreigners. It is important for both corporations and individuals that the work assignments of foreign employees coming to Finland are successful.
