Speech: Unlocking Career Pathways with WFO Group Oy: Empowering Individuals for Success

It is with great pleasure that I stand before you today to discuss a topic that lies at the heart of our company's mission: unlocking career pathways and empowering individuals for success.

In today's rapidly evolving world, the traditional concept of a linear career path is becoming increasingly obsolete. Instead, individuals are seeking opportunities for growth, learning, and advancement that transcend the confines of conventional career trajectories. As a company committed to fostering a culture of innovation and excellence, we recognize the importance of providing our employees with the tools, resources, and support they need to navigate their unique career journeys.

But what kind of company is WFO Group Oy, you may ask? WFO Group provides professional services to jobseekers and employers. And with our experience, we’ve learned that staffing is not a numbers game — it’s a relationship-building business. That’s why we put an emphasis on listening, guiding and matching. At our company, we believe in the power of empowerment. We understand that each individual possesses unique talents, aspirations, and ambitions, and it is our responsibility to nurture  and develop those qualities to their fullest potential. Whether you are a student or recent graduate embarking on your first job, we are dedicated to providing you with the opportunities and support you need to succeed. One of the keyways we unlock career pathways at our company is through our commitment to continuous learning and development. Furthermore, we recognize the importance of fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization. We understand that diversity of thought, background, cultures and experience is essential for driving innovation and achieving sustainable success. That is why we are committed to creating an environment where all individuals feel valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their unique perspectives and ideas.

Perhaps most importantly, I believe in the power of community. Moving to a foreign country can be a lonely and isolating experience, but it doesn't have to be. However, it's important to remember that you're not alone in this experience, and there are many ways to overcome feelings of loneliness and build a fulfilling life and career in your new environment. That's why we work tirelessly to foster a supportive and inclusive community where individuals can connect, collaborate, and support each other on their journey to success.

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, more and more individuals are seeking opportunities to pursue their dreams and ambitions in foreign lands. Whether it's for work, education, or personal growth, the prospect of living and thriving in a foreign country is an exciting and rewarding endeavour. However, navigating the complexities of life in a new country can be daunting, and that's where our company comes in.

In this sense, I am a good example. I came to Finland about 5 years ago, after graduating from university. I just wanted to try to live in some other country and probably test myself. After a little more than half a year of studying Finnish, I got the opportunity to do an internship at WFO as a marketing intern, and then, thanks to my activity and desire to learn new things and not being afraid of difficulties, I was offered to stay on a permanent basis. After a while, my manager noticed my organizational skills and first offered me the position of HR coordinator. In this way, WFO noticed my individual abilities and strengths and gave me the opportunity to develop them internally.

In conclusion, our company is committed to helping foreigners achieve success in Finland. Unlocking career pathways and empowering individuals for success is not just a goal, it is a fundamental aspect of who we are as a company. Together, let's turn our dreams of success into reality even in foreign country.
