The Employment and Economic Development Offices on Monday started events in different parts of Finland for closer cooperation between employment services and employers, said an official press release.

The event which will continue till April 15 is aimed at finding new jobs and creating awareness of the employment and economic development services among companies and employers. The European Employer's Day is organised simultaneously across Europe.

“The campaign is extremely topical just now. The current labour market situation highlights the importance of cooperation between employers. One of the aims of the visits to companies is to find hidden jobs. Companies are a source of growth, which we are trying to support through public employment services. At the same time, each new job helps to reduce unemployment,” said the Minister of Justice and Employment, Jari Lindström.

During the first two weeks of April, specialists from the Employment and Economic Development Offices will make personal visits to companies. Employers are invited to participate in business breakfasts, recruiting sessions and job fairs as well as entrepreneurship clinics.   In addition, visits will be made to local entrepreneur organisations in order to intensify cooperation.

The employment and economic development services help companies get skilled labour and support their expansion. Closer collaboration between the employment services and employers reduces problems linked to jobseeker matches and recruitment.

“The employment services must be well informed of companies' needs to be able to help jobseekers and employers find each other. This year, cooperation between companies and the employment services will be further intensified. The Employment and Economic Development Offices aim to raise the number of visits to companies in all areas. We aim to visit about 24,000 companies across Finland in 2016,” said Lindström.

Over 150,000 employers in more than 30 countries will be contacted on the European Employer's Day. The campaign is organised by the Network of Public Employment Services (PES).
