Talent Boost Summit 2019

Welcome to the third annual Talent Boost Summit – this time in Turku!

Talent Boost Summit 2019 will focus on talent retention.

Some background 

Companies in Finland have a shortage of experts in many areas, such as IT, cleantech, creative, health, maritime and tech fields. Hiring the first international experts is often a big step for the company. However, the company's culture and know-how develops with the help of international experts. This accelerates growth and success in export markets. For our competitiveness, it is crucial to attract these international professionals.

International experts living in Finland are an important asset to our working life. Many also have talented spouses who also have moved to Finland. Also, annually, more than 3,000 foreign students graduate from Finnish universities. These people have both professional knowledge and experience in Finnish culture and lifestyle in addition to their own language, culture and networks. Their expertise is key for innovation, growth and internationalization of Finnish businesses.

Espoo proudly hosts Talent Boost Summit on 29th of October 2020 in Dipoli. .

The Summit is free of charge. The event will be streamed online, and photographs will be taken.
