A SAFE AND SECURE OPEN SOCIETY

Finnish society has become an ideal business environment where everything works, from basic infrastructure to high ethical standards. Investment in education and an open, equal society have made Finns independent and creative problem-solvers who can boost productivity with exciting new ideas.

Equality is at the very heart of Finnish society. Finland’s President of the Republic and President of the Supreme Court have been both female – female professors or executives in Finland are nothing exceptional. You will find women in all industries at all levels.

Finland is a small giant in healthcare. The world's most efficient healthcare system is built on research, innovation and smart business. An outstanding universal healthcare system and daycare for children has also facilitated equality, sustainability and functionality in Finnish society. Families with children are especially well taken care of by society, and their lives are made easier by the many types of support and benefits available, such as comprehensive parental leave. Wellbeing for families means wellbeing for children, and our children are the future.
