Boosting Growth in Ostrobothnian Regions

For Employers and Organizations 

Why Do We Need International Talents?

Why do we need international talents, and why is it important to recruit international labour?

International mobility brings competences and skills that many employers seek and need, such as the ability to work in multicultural teams, to create networks, adapt in new situations, think outside the box, as well as a stronger curiosity, innovation, tolerance, cultural knowledge, language skills, and a more global mind-set.

On a local level, employing international talents will increase innovation and boost the economy, by providing the local businesses with original, modern and global solutions and opening possibilities for their growth, which would bring opportunities for export and raise the local employment rate.
